IPL 2022: After the defeat against Mumbai, the Delhi team has been out of the IPL. Even after this, the captain of the team Rishabh Pant has got the support of coach Ricky Ponting. Head coach Ricky Ponting has said that Rishabh Pant is still the right person to captain the team.
Pant got support
Ponting said, “There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the captaincy of Rishabh is going bad, even in the last season he was the right choice for the captaincy. When you look at the past, Rishabh took over the captaincy after Shreyas Iyer and did a wonderful job with the team. Last season we were on top of the table. Unfortunately we lost the last two matches. But see, there is no doubt about him in my mind.
He is learning the qualities of captaincy
Ponting further felt that Pant was still learning the qualities of being a better T20 captain. Footage of Ponting and Pant was shown on TV after losing the match. Asked what he was telling Pant, Ponting revealed that he expressed his disappointment over the mistake Delhi made in the final leg of the match.
blamed for poor batting
Talking about where the Delhi team went wrong against Mumbai, Ponting refused to attribute his loss to the missed review against David and blamed poor batting.
“It is always difficult to question any one aspect of the match, but our top-order batting was so bad that we lost four wickets under 50 runs,” he said. It’s not a good start in a T20 match, especially in a big match, which we needed to win. He further said, after the loss of this match, I am very sad that the match slipped from our hands. It was a disappointing defeat for us.
