Pant had scored 29 runs off simply 16 deliveries as he batted at No.4 place. Pant’s Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting has now weighed in on the place Pant ought to bat and why he will be utilised as a floater.
Within the not too long ago concluded IPL, Pant batted at No.4 or 5. In the whole match, the left-handed batter had a strike fee of over 151 and he was additionally the second-highest scorer for Delhi Capitals after David Warner.
“I reckon they will have him as a floater. They will have listed (him) at 5 within the batting line-up. However in sure conditions, in the event that they get to a stage the place there are seven-eight overs to go and so they’re one or two down, they will look to sending him in and giving him as a lot time as they’ll. He is that dynamic, and that explosive. That is definitely the way in which that I am going to try to use him,” stated Ponting on ICC Assessment.
“He is great… speak about nice individuals. He is simply an excellent younger man that is obtained the world at his ft. He’ll be exceptionally harmful for India, particularly on the wickets we’ll put together in Australia (for the T20 World Cup) – good, quick, flat, bouncy wickets. He’ll be one of many gamers to observe on the match for certain,” he additional said.
When requested how would he wish to utilise Dinesh Karthik within the T20 facet, Ponting stated: “I’d have him, and I would have him in at that 5 or 6 position. The best way that he completed video games for RCB this 12 months, he took his recreation to a different degree. Once you take a look at the IPL, you need your higher gamers to perhaps have the ability to win two or three, perhaps 4 video games via the season. If you may get that out of them, it is in all probability going to be a extremely good return. However Dinesh in all probability had a much bigger affect on plenty of the video games than many of the different RCB gamers did this 12 months.”
“Virat (Kohli) having the 12 months he is had, Maxi (Glenn Maxwell) began the match rather well… however DK was the one. And Faf too I suppose, who stored the RCB bandwagon rolling. I would be shocked if he is not of their (India) line-up someplace,” he added.
