Dubai, Language. Rishabh Pant, the explosive wicket-keeper batsman of the Indian cricket team, had become a victim of a horrific car accident last year. He was admitted to the hospital after being badly injured and is currently undergoing treatment in Mumbai. His health update is constantly being monitored by the fans. This stalwart of Team India captains the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League. The head coach of the team Ricky Ponting has made a big announcement regarding him.
Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting wants regular skipper Rishabh Pant to sit next to him in the dugout every weekday during the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). Pant was injured in a car accident in the last week of December due to which he will not be able to play in the IPL. India’s wicketkeeper and Delhi Capitals captain Pant is currently undergoing treatment in Mumbai.
Ponting said in the ICC review, “You can’t fill the place of a player like that.” Players like that are not born easily. We are looking at replacing him with a wicketkeeper-batsman. If he is not really physically fit to play, we would still like him to be with the team. If he is able to travel and stay with the team, I would love to sit next to him in the dugout every day of the week.
Ponting said, “I would definitely like to make sure that if he is able to be with the team when we meet in Delhi to start the camp in March, I would like him to be with us full-time.” ”
India is scheduled to play a four-Test series against Australia in February – March. After this, the final of the ICC World Test Championship can also be played between these two teams in June. Ponting said that India will miss Pant against Australia.
He said, “I think he is among the top six or seven batsmen in the world. It is like that isn’t it?
Pant is currently ranked seventh in the ICC Men’s Test Batting Rankings. Ponting said, “When he started, we all thought that he would prove to be a better T20 and ODI batsman than a Test batsman, but in fact, the opposite happened. His Test cricket record is excellent. There is a four-Test series against Australia and we know how he did last time in Australia against Australia. The cricket world wanted to see him playing in this series.
