Significantly, after a caught behind appeal was denied, he refused to pursue DRS against Tim David. The Mumbai hitter nicked the first ball he encountered, according to replays.

Taking advantage of his good fortune, David smashed 34 in 11 balls as MI defeated DC by five wickets, knocking them out of the IPL 2022. Despite some criticism of Pant’s leadership, Chawla believes DC should keep him on as captain.

“Pant is young and is still learning as a captain. Mistakes happen. Not only Rishabh Pant, but any captain can also make mistakes. He is one for the future and I am sure he will learn with time and experience. He is a street smart cricketer, who will only improve as he keeps leading.”

Former Australian tweaker Brad Hogg stated that Pant is the primary decision-maker in Delhi, as opposed to the Indian camp, which includes players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

“Pant and Thakur were affected greatly when Tim David nicked through to the keeper, and the umpire did not give it out. Firstly, let’s go to Pant. Pant can’t go to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and say, ‘He’s nicked it, go upstairs’ and pass the responsibility on. Last night, the responsibility affected him to hear the nick and back himself to go upstairs”

Delhi came within a whisker of making the IPL 2022 playoffs. After the league stage, they ended fifth in the points table, with seven wins and an equal amount of losses.

Some critics believe Pant’s batting has been harmed by the added pressure of leading the team. Chawla, on the other hand, does not agree with the observation.

Whether he is captain or not, he believes the southpaw will only bat one way.

“I don’t think captaincy impacts his batting in any way. If the ball is there to be hit, even if it is the first ball he is facing, he will go after it. I don’t think captaincy had anything to do with his batting performance in this IPL. I wouldn’t even say that his form was bad. Would like to see him leading Delhi again next year.”

Piyush Chawla said

In 14 IPL 2022 matches, the aggressive keeper-batsman scored 340 runs at an average of 30.91 and a strike rate of 151.79. He failed to reach the half-century mark and finished the season with a high of 44.
