Delhi Capitals head coah said Rishab Pant who is ruled out from playing in the upcoming IPL 2023 has a role to do in this IPL 2023. Rishab Pant was the captain of Delhi Capitals from IPL 2022 edition. Ponting wants Pant to be around the team during the season, if he has recovered well enough.
“I want him sitting beside me in the dugout every day of the week,” Ponting told the ICC review. "If he’s actually not physically fit enough to play, we’d still love to have him around.
"He’s the sort of cultural leader around the group, being the captain, and that attitude and infectious smile and laugh he has is what we all love so much about him.
“I’ll certainly be making sure, come the middle of March when we get together in Delhi and start our camps and stuff, if he’s able to be there, then I want him around the whole time.”
