This head coach of Delhi Capitals said, “When I first joined the team, he was a new player. I said that he is going to be someone who will play for India for a long time.
I could feel his urge to make a place in every team of India. Ricky Ponting feels young skipper Rishabh Pant’s maturity level has “increased a lot” in the last few seasons and he has emerged from a formidable batsman to the leader of the team.
Let us tell you that before the second phase of IPL 2021, when Shreyas Iyer announced his return, the question in everyone’s mind was whether Rishabh Pant would be retained as the captain or Iyer Will be made captain once again.
However, the team management showed confidence in Pant’s captaincy and for the second phase also he has been given the command of Delhi Capitals.
Many believed that Iyer’s game could be affected by not getting the captaincy but former England player Mark Butcher called the decision good for Shreyas Iyer.
At the same time, he also said that Shreyas Iyer will not have any problem with Pant being the captain.
