Ricky Ponting backs Rishabh Pant to have a huge impact at T20 World Cup

Pant finished the league stage of the IPL with 16 dismissals, the joint-most by any wicket-keeper in the season.

On the back of his impressive showing behind and in front of the stumps, Pant was named in India’s T20 World Cup squad as predicted by Ponting.

“I was asked when I was over there what I thought about him,” the Aussie legend said.

“He’d been picked in the Indian squad, and I basically said he’d be one of the first players picked, and sure enough he was.

“So, great to see him back out there playing again. I’ve enjoyed every moment of working with him. Obviously, he’s been the captain of the Delhi Capitals, and I’ve been the coach there.

“But it’s been a remarkable comeback, and hopefully he has a huge impact on this World Cup.”
