While DC lost Ajinkya Rahane and Prithvi Shaw for single-digit scores, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer kept the DC team in the chase. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals’ head coach Ricky Ponting had a chat with the commentators and spoke about the importance of having wickets in the hand for that last over surge in a chase.
During the interview, DC keeper Rishabh Pant, who is out with an injury to his hamstring, decided to bring some fun in the conversation and stood behind Ponting and mimicked his body language and gestures for the heck of it.
It made for some fun TV and Ponting only realized it when the commentators pointed it out to him, at which point, Pant turned back and walked to his spot in the dugout.
