Under Pant’s captaincy, DC has won only five matches so far in the IPL 2022. Pant’s certain captaincy decisions have always put DC in a losing position. Cricket legends have also criticized him a lot because of his wrong bowler selection and wrong bowling changes.

But all these are outside noise as Ponting has said that he backed him with every decision that he makes on the field. But people are forgiving that Pant is 24 and at this small age, he is managing an IPL team. So it will take time to see him in mature leadership shape. But as he is under the guidance of one of the best captain figures so we can hope the time will come early.

“I fully back every decision he (Pant) takes on the field. I being a T20 captain before, I know you don’t have a lot of time to think about. Especially under extreme pressure. It is easy to make judgments from outside but trust me when you are in the middle it is not an easy thing to do. A captain makes decisions in a very short time. And the decision he takes he thinks is the best for the team at that given time of the match.”

Ponting said at the post-match press conference

Ponting admitted that against CSK, DC has lagged in all departments, batting, and bowling. He mentioned Khaleel Ahmed being the only good performer in that match. He showed his concern that a 91 runs margin will affect their net run rate. And all we know is that sometimes NRR plays a vital role in playoff qualifications. That is why Ponting has added that they need to win the next match very strongly.

He continued that DC is believing that they can enter into the playoffs with the next three wins. Eight wins should help theme for the qualifications round as well as a big win for the run rate recovery. DC is looking at the rest of the IPL 2022 with an optimistic. The team has known that always things will not be going the planned way. But after getting a defeat the team will work hard and will come back stronger.
