Rishabh Pant is very quickly evolving into one of the biggest draws in T20 cricket. He had a phenomenal IPL last year and in 2019 IPL as well, he has made a brilliant start. The southpaw scored 78 runs off 27 balls against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede stadium
Delhi Capitals coach, Ricky Ponting revealed how much Pant has evolved with time.”I have seen Rishabh mature in his game and as a person and that won’t be the only game he wins for DC. He will win many more games for sure,” said Ponting on the eve of Delhi’s match against Chennai Super Kings.
Ponting is quite impressed with Pant’s match-winning abilities. “I have known for a couple of seasons now that Rishabh Pant has got that X-factor but what I like more and more about him is how he is turning that into match-winning performances more and more often as well,” said Ponting.
Ponting reckons Pant can does a very good job as a finisher. He said, “If you look at the back half of the last edition, he was playing his best when our team was playing its best in those games. Even yesterday, we set up a good platform for him to go and express himself.
