IPL 2021 News: In the Indian Premier League, the team of Delhi Capitals has announced their new captain. After Shreyas Iyer was ruled out of IPL 2021 due to injury, the Delhi Capitals franchise has appointed young batsman Rishabh Pant as captain.
Ricky Ponting, the head coach of the Delhi team, has also supported Rishabh Pant and said that his recent performances against Australia and England will help him lead the team and it will also boost his confidence.
Rishabh Pant has been appointed the new captain of the team in place of regular captain Shreyas Iyer.
Because Shreyas Iyer will stay away from cricket for about 4 months now due to a shoulder injury.
Former Australia captain and Delhi head coach Ricky Ponting said that this is a great opportunity for young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant.
Who recently performed very strongly against Australia and England. There is no doubt that it will also boost morale while captaining them.
The coaching group is very keen to work with them and we are desperate for this level to begin.
Let us tell you that Rishabh Pant has recently confirmed his place as a wicket-keeper batsman in all three formats for the Indian cricket team.
He was instrumental in winning the Test series against Australia at home and then the home series against England.
Against Australia, he played a brilliant innings of 97 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground. And the Indian team was successful in drawing that match.
While in the fourth and final Test match, he scored an unbeaten 89-run innings and won Team India on the fifth day.
With that win, the Indian trio captured Australia 2–1 in their home series. On the new role he got in the Delhi Capitals team, Pant said where I grew up and started my IPL journey six years ago.
It was always my dream to become captain of such a team one day. Today this dream of mine has also been fulfilled, I am feeling much more honored.
This is really proud of me and I am thankful to the owners of my teams for this. Because all these people considered me worthy of this role.
With the great coaching staff and many seniors, I will try to give my best to the Delhi Capitals team.
