India’s great batsman Sunil Gavaskar has lauded Indian Cricket team’s wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. ‘Rishabh Pant, the 23-year-old captain of Delhi Capitals, will be India’s best captain in the future’, Gavaskar said. Shreyas Iyer withdrew from the IPL due to injury and Rishabh took over the leadership of Delhi Capitals. Under Rishabh’s leadership, Delhi have won 6 of 8 matches in the IPL 2021. Delhi needed just two wins in the remaining matches to secure a place in the play-offs.
Rishabh has shown his threat in batting as well as leadership skills. Gavaskar said that under the leadership of the young captain, Delhi Capital has done well. He was bored when asked about the captaincy after the sixth match. He showed determination to perform with a bang if given the opportunity. He also made mistakes, which captain doesn’t make mistakes? .But after some IPL matches, he showed ingenuity in learning new things. Gavaskar has said that many decisions have proved it. Pant has scored 213 runs at an average of 35 in 8 matches in IPL 2021.
