Prime Time Zone, Sports: Team captain Ricky Ponting has said that the selection of Delhi Capitals as captain in the 14th season of the IPL will benefit Pant in a career. Ponting said Pant, who has been doing well in a series in recent times, deserves the post. ‘The absence of Shreyas Iyer in the team is sad.

He explained that looking at him reminded him of the early days of his cricket. Sehwag said it was good for the players to be the captain of a cricket team with a positive outlook like Pant.
