Sunil Gavaskar, India’s great cricketer and commentator in IPL-2021, has counted the mistakes committed by Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant in the last two matches. However, he believes that those mistakes will not have any bad effect on Pant’s positive thinking. He said that Delhi is a great team. If there is top class batting, then 3 fastest bowlers are also in the team. Let us tell you that today Delhi has to play Qualifier-2 against Kolkata. The winner team will play the final with CSK.
Sunil Gavaskar, in an article for ‘Times of India’, counted the wrong decisions of Pant, which Pant made in the last two matches. Both these matches were won and lost by the team. He said, ‘The final over against Bangalore was given to a new bowler. Avesh Khan has talent, but he had come under pressure. Something similar happened in the qualifiers as well. Against Chennai Super Kings, he promoted Axar Patel to batting, even though this season was better for him as a batsman. Had Hetmyer, who was in form, been sent in, 15-20 runs more could have been scored.
He also discussed giving the last over to Tom Karan in front of Dhoni. Gavaskar said, ‘When you have Kagiso Rabada as a substitute, then gave Tom Karan the last over. If this is the first season for Pant as captain, then he will be criticized for such decisions. However, a similar mistake was made by Pant’s mentor Dhoni. He had promoted Shardul Thakur in batting, he too flopped like Patel. However, after this Dhoni himself turned the dice of the match by landing on the field at the crucial occasion. He scored a winning run for the team and took CSK to the final.
On Pant’s positive thinking, the great batsman said, ‘Whatever the situation, Pant’s thinking has been positive. Mistakes made in the last two matches won’t make a difference in the second qualifier against KKR. It will be a new match and he should play that way. Delhi has hard hitters, Kolkata has good spinners like Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine. If Andre Russell is expected to be fit then the match should be exciting.
