‘Instinctive captain’ Rishabh Pant will get better with time: Sourav Ganguly | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Sourav Ganguly, the director of cricket for the Delhi Capitals, believes that Rishabh Pant is an instinctive captain whose leadership qualities would develop with time and experience.
Following a horrifying vehicle accident in December 2022, the stunning wicket-keeper batsman made a long and arduous recovery before making a comeback to competitive cricket.
The 26-year-old went back to leading the Delhi Capitals.
“Pant is a young captain, he’ll learn with time. The way he returned from injury to play a full season; we had our doubts during the off season,” Ganguly told JioCinema.
“Indian players are crucial, especially since the TATA IPL shifted to 10 teams. I am very happy for him that he returned to play so well over a full season. He has all my well wishes for whatever is next,” Ganguly added.
Throughout the IPL, Pant has frequently demonstrated his wise leadership, but he has also made a few poor choices.
“With time, he’ll become a better captain. Nobody is a great captain from day one, but he is an instinctual captain, he makes decisions on the ground. With more time, he’ll get better.”
DC finished the league stage with seven victories and seven defeats. They have a mathematical chance to make the playoffs, so they are still in the running, but they have probably played their final game of the season.

This season, pacers Mukesh Kumar and Rasikh Dar Salam have excelled, and Ganguly has been gushing in his appreciation of them.
“You’ve seen Rasikh’s development over time. The more matches he played, the better he got. It’s not easy to bowl on the Delhi wicket. This wicket is great, and the ground isn’t that big, so I think for any bowler, it isn’t easy to bowl here. Rasikh has improved a lot.
“Mukesh has been our best bowler this season. He bowls all the difficult overs, whether at the start or at the death. There has been no match this season where we didn’t need his bowling in the death,” he said.
“We knew that conceding sixes would lead to more losses, so he has consistently delivered there. Our Indian bowlers have been great this season.”
