Speaking about DC’s newest captain on T20 Crazy, Brett Lee said, “Pant is the future of Indian Cricket, he has the right blend to be a successful cricketer. He is such a great find for India and Delhi. Ricky Ponting and Rishabh Pant are a great combination and definitely, Ponting’s leadership qualities will rub off right on him. DC under Pant might just even take the trophy – they have the right team, right support staff, right management.”
Rishabh Pant has been touted by many as the one to watch out for this IPL, his tremendous series-winning form and the unfortunate injury to Shreyas Iyer has placed him as the youngest captain this season. At just 23, Rishabh Pant will stand shoulder to shoulder with prolific captains and starts his campaign against the player he has succeeded, MS Dhoni. All eyes are on Delhi Capitals, as they have never won an IPL before, and Pant could be the X-factor they need to cross the finish line. DC lost in the finals to Mumbai Indians, who lifted the coveted trophy at the IPL last season.
Signing off, Brett Lee picked his top favourites to make the playoffs based on current form, statistics and looking at how the teams are set up. He said, “I have to pick Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, though the great part of IPL is that any of the eight sides could go on to win the title.”
