Rishab Pant has been rewarded for his match-winning knocks for the Indian cricket team! The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman is now Delhi Capitals' skipper for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
While there were debates on who will fill in for Shreyas Iyer, this move will be a big topic of discussion. It seems to be good that DC head coach Ricky Ponting has thrown his weight behind Pant.
People can say Pant is too inexperienced to become a captain, but Ponting believes the opposite. "Unfortunate that Shreyas will miss the tournament, but looking forward to seeing @RishabhPant17 grab his opportunity. It's well deserved for his recent performances and he's coming in with a lot of confidence. I'm convinced captaincy will make him an even better player," the former Australian captain posted on his Twitter.
