Delhi Capitals Head Coach Ricky Ponting expresses thoughts about IPL 2022 season
Ahead of the IPL 2022 season, Ponting said, “At the moment, we need to really focus on what we need to do to get ready for game one. I had a great first session with the players. There’s an energetic vibe around the team, which is what we always strive for.”
After the IPL Mega Auction earlier this year, the Delhi Capitals camp has a lot of new faces. The Head Coach expressed that the new group’s ability to integrate fast will be a challenge.
“I have told the boys to keep their doors open when they are in their rooms and get to know each other. I am going to have breakfast, lunch and dinner with all the younger guys that I don’t know. When you show love towards the younger guys as a coach or a senior player, you know that they are going to give it back.”
The Australian legend further added, “The guys who have been in the Delhi Capitals camp for a while definitely have the responsibility of guiding the youngsters in the team. Rishabh’s Captain, so he’s going to do that anyway, but guys like Prithvi, Axar and Nortje will also have their roles and responsibilities within the team.”
On March 26, 2022, the IPL 2022 will begin. On March 27, 2022, the Delhi Capitals will play the Mumbai Indians in their opening match of the season.
