Legendary Australian captain Ricky Ponting has mentioned that Yash Dhull is a product of the Delhi Capitals academy.

It’s very exciting. It adds a lot of energy to the group. Let’s not forget with Yash, he has been in the Delhi Capitals academy as well. It’s just a really good example of what the Delhi Capitals Academy is being able to do to produce good young players, someone who is good enough to captain India to a successful U19 World Cup campaign. So, he has been a great inclusion to our squad,” Ponting said during a media interaction on Saturday.

The former Australian captain further mentioned the names of a few more youngsters, who have been a great inclusion in the Delhi Capitals squad, and said that the DC have been very successful in bringing talented youngsters to the squad.

Vicky has also been a great inclusion to our squad. We’ve seen over the past 4-5 years, we’ve had great success bringing the youngsters in. We did the same thing with Prithvi a few years ago, and we saw how good a player he’s turned out to be. There’s a bit of the strategy that goes into the auction,” said Ponting.

“It’s not just the young guys either. Someone like Sarfaraz is a young guy. Kuldeep Yadav is young as well.”

The second match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 will be played between Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians (MI) and Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday, March 27.

Some of the star overseas Delhi Capitals players like David Warner and Mitchell Marsh will be missing the first few games for DC. Meanwhile, Ricky Ponting said that he is not concerned about the lack of overseas stars as the Delhi Capitals have got great depth in the squad.

“No, not at all. We haven’t spoken about it at all. We have been working exceptionally hard to make sure they’re ready for the first challenge, which is tomorrow afternoon,” Ponting said. 

“We would know in the next few days about some of our overseas players who are yet to arrive. Some overseas names are already here, Mustafizur and Ngidi are here, as well as Nortje. Rovman has been really impressive during the training sessions and the practice matches. I believe we’ve got a great depth in our squad; yes, we’re missing some overseas players in the first couple of games, but that’s no worry to us whatsoever. A lot of teams are in a similar boat to us, so we are just pushing forward making sure our players are well-prepared. I fully expect us to have a good start on Sunday.”
