The Rishabh Pant-drove Delhi Capitals fixed a definitive eight-wicket triumph over Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Wednesday to keep their playoff hopes alive in IPL 2022. Up to this point, DC has been victorious in six matches out of 12 and sits fifth in the points table.

Following the conclusion of the game, former India all-rounder Ajay Jadeja felt that Pant has made a fine showing while at the same time driving the group.

Jadeja additionally said that DC head coach Ricky Ponting worked intimately with Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant, yet upheld the young wicketkeeper-player to lead the team.

Amazing To See Rishabh Pant Play This Way: Ajay Jadeja

“Rishabh Pant’s decisions have been good and he is an aggressive player. It seemed like he was playing a senior role very early in his career. The youth factor must stay intact.

It was amazing to see him play this way today. Nobody expects him to go out there and play like the rest of the batters,” Jadeja said during an interaction on Cricbuzz.

Rishabh Pant Is The One Calling The Shots: Ajay Jadeja

Jadeja further added that it’s great to see Pant taking a few strong choices.

“At times, when someone is made captain, you can feel that someone’s guiding them. But with Pant, it’s clear that he is the one calling the shots. Ricky Ponting backed Rishabh Pant ahead of ex-captain Shreyas Iyer.

He saw both of them and selected Pant to lead the side as he thought him to be the better option out of the two,” Jadeja said.

Mitchell Marsh (89) and David Warner (52 not out) scored the fifties as DC pursue down the target of 161 with eight wickets and 11 balls in excess. Prior, RR had scored 160 for six on the rear of Ravichandran Ashwin’s 38-ball 50.

DC will take on Punjab Kings on Monday, May 16 for their next assignment of IPL 2022
