You are wow: Sourav Ganguly praises Rishabh Pant
New Delhi, April 23
Delhi Capitals mentor Sourav Ganguly praised wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who played a scintillating knock to guide his team to a six-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Chasing 192, Delhi rode on brilliant half centuries from Shikhar Dhawan (54 off 27) and Pant (78* off 36) at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday to move to the top of the points table.
The 21-year-old, who is not a part of the 15-member India squad for the upcoming World Cup, perhaps played his most responsible knock of the season and helped his side reach the target with four balls to spare.
“I am feeling lovely,” said Pant at the post-match presentation ceremony after being named the Player of the Match. “To make your team win in an important match is a good feeling.”
Delhi, sitting at the top of the table with 14 points, will now face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Sunday.
