Mumbai: Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting believes that wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant will enjoy the additional responsibility of leading the team in the IPL.
Rishabh Pant has been appointed as the captain of Delhi Capitals for the upcoming IPL due to injury to regular captain Shreyas Iyer.
Ponting praised Pant’s fiercely
In a media release of the franchise, Ricky Ponting said, ‘I think he will fully enjoy the additional responsibility. He is the kind of person who likes responsibility, who likes to lead. So I am really curious to see how he handles the responsibility ‘.
He said, ‘We will help them, but to be honest, I do not think they will need much help’.
The former Australian captain Ricky Ponting said that assisting the newly appointed captain would be part of the work of the coaching staff and senior players.
He said, ‘I think if we can talk to Rishabh about his captaincy before the first match, then we don’t have to worry about it when the tournament starts. At the start of the tournament you will not want to burden the captain with suggestions’.
