Mumbai: Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting believes wicket hitter Rishabh Pant will have the additional responsibility of leading the team in the IPL.
Rishabh Pant has been named captain of the Delhi Capitals for the upcoming IPL due to an injury to regular captain Shreyas Iyer.
Ponting fiercely praised the pants
In a franchise press release, Ricky Ponting said, “I think he will take full advantage of this added responsibility. He’s the kind of person who likes responsibility, who likes to lead. So I’m really curious to see how he takes responsibility ”.
He said: “We will help them, but to be honest I don’t think they will need a lot of help.”
Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting said assisting the new captain will be part of the job of the coaching staff and senior players.
He said: “ I think if we can talk to Rishabh about his captain position before the first game, we won’t have to worry about that when the tournament starts. At the start of the tournament, you don’t want to burden the captain with suggestions ”.
