Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting is backing Rishabh Pant to come good in the World Cup. He has described him as one of those players who can help the team in winning the World Cup.
However, Pant recently failed with both the bat and gloves in the recently concluded ODI series against Australia at home.
“The first thing I would do is pick him in that Indian squad for the World Cup, I would play him as a batter, I would play him at number four,” said the former Australian captain.
“He is the sort of guy, with that kind of talent, he can win you a World Cup, he has just got that x-factor.”
