IPL 2022: Shane Watson calls Rishabh Pant ‘calm leader’

IPL 2022: Delhi Capitals (DC) newly appointed Assistant Coach Shane Watson hailed captain Rishabh Pant as a calm and collective leader on Tuesday.

“Rishabh Pant should be the best version of himself. Rishabh is very calm and collective as a leader. Both Rishabh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are different individuals with amazing skill sets,” Watson said during a media interaction ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season.

“Delhi is certainly one of the strongest squads across the board with Indian players and foreign players. That’s is why I am so excited to be a part of the Delhi Capitals,” he added.

Watson recounted his memories of Shane Warne, the late famous spinner, and described him as a “amazing leader.”

“Warnie was an incredible leader. He believed in the ability of the players. Shane Warne just knew how to pull it off. My memories with Shane became all the more special after his sudden demise,” said Watson.

The first match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take place on March 26. On March 27, the DC will play the Mumbai Indians in their first game
