Delhi Capitals director Ricky Ponting has spoken a lot about wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who was injured in a car accident.
48-year-old former Australian captain Ponting said in the ICC review- ‘If he recovers to a great extent till the IPL, I want him to sit in the dugout of Delhi Capitals at least once a week. Even if he is not in a playing condition, we would love to have him. If Pant is in a position to travel only a few times, be around the team and if possible sit with the team for at least a day, it will make a lot of difference.
Ponting went ahead and said- ‘We cannot replace him. He is the captain. We have to see how we will get a wicket-keeper batsman. Ponting said- ‘I have been in constant touch with Rishabh Pant after the injury.’
This year the IPL may start at the end of March.
