Things haven’t gone according to plans for Delhi Capitals (DC) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. They have won just four matches out of nine. Despite their poor show in the ongoing IPL, the team management, including head coach Ricky Ponting, are confident that under the captaincy of Rishabh Pant, the Capitals will make a quick turnaround.

Young skipper Pant took over as captain from Shreyas Iyer last season. Pant and Ponting seem to have established a wonderful camaraderie with each other. Not only that, Pant was also seen vibing with Ponting’s son Fletcher. In a video shared by DC on their official Twitter handle, Pant and Fletcher can be seen playing football.
