Delhi Capitals’ wicket-keeper batsman, Rishabh Pant starred for his side in the encounter against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium. He scored 78 runs off 27 deliveries and helped Delhi post in excess of 200 runs, which proved too much for the hosts, Mumbai Indians to chase down.
Rishabh Pant is a star in making. He has made giant strides at the highest level and is also doing well in IPL. “It’s been a great journey, I’m trying to learn every day of my cricketing career. It feels good when your team wins. I always play according to the situation most of the time, said Rishabh Pant.
“This time I needed to increase the run rate for the team, and I took my chances, and it came off today. Especially in T20, you have to do something different. When the bowler cramps you for room, you need to make your own room.”
“First game is always a bit of a challenge for most of the teams. Lot of new players in the squad as well. We made a lot of mistakes today, as simple as that. We were pretty much in the game in the first 10 overs when we were bowling, but the way Rishabh batted, you’ve got to give him credit, said the swashbuckling batsman.
