IPL 2021: Ricky Ponting, head coach of Delhi Capitals said – the performance of the first half of the IPL does not matter.
The remaining matches of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League 2021 are going to start. Where the second leg match will be played tomorrow i.e. on 19th September in UAE.
In such a situation, Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting feels that his team will have to start afresh in the 14th season of the IPL to be restored in the UAE from Sunday.
Because the performance of the first half of this league does not matter. Let us tell you that the first phase of the 14th season of IPL 2021 was suspended due to the increasing cases of Covid-19.
During that time, the team Delhi Capitals played in their 8 matches, winning six matches and maintaining first place in the points table. In a release issued by the Delhi franchise, coach Ricky Ponting said that it does not matter how we performed in the first season.
We played very good cricket in the first season and almost 4 months have passed since then and that’s why we have to start all over again.
Ponting further said, we have to improve ourselves even more as this tournament progresses that we continue to play our best cricket in this tournament till the end.
This former great captain of the Australian team and legendary batsman Ponting said that our performance in the first half of this tournament was good because we played very good cricket.
During that time we worked very hard but I don’t think we have played our best cricket. Ricky Ponting further says that all his players have shown great enthusiasm during the pre-season camp here.
I have been waiting for 4 months to make a comeback to the Delhi Capitals camp. We had a wonderful time with our team during that time and for me, it is a wonderful time of the calendar year as well.

Ricky Ponting further said that I am very excited about what is going to happen in the next four to five weeks. Ponting said about the return of Shreyas Iyer in the team that Iyer’s return is excellent for us.
His training is going great. He too is desperate to score runs and win for his team once he hits the ground. He is a world-class cricketer and there is no doubt that our team will be much stronger with his arrival.
