Delhi Capitals will face Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday in the second qualifier match of the ongoing IPL 2021 playoff in UAE. On one hand, the KKR team is full of confidence after winning two consecutive matches, while on the other hand Rishabh Pant-led team DC looks a bit worried after losing both their previous matches. Chennai Super Kings defeated Delhi Capitals by 4 wickets in the first qualifier match played at Dubai Cricket Stadium.
Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals has shared a video on social media in which the head coach of the team Ricky Ponting is seen inspiring the DC players with full enthusiasm. Fans are very fond of the way the former Australian captain has boosted the morale of the team through his speech. Many people even said that after listening to this speech of Ponting, their hair stood up.
How Ricky Ponting motivated the team
After the loss to Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting addressed all the players of his team in the dressing room.
The former Australian captain said, “To be honest, I am very disappointed that we have missed the chance to make the final. But the good thing is that our openers are looking in form. Prithvi Shaw played a good innings.
The interesting thing is that during this speech of Ponting, Prithvi Shaw interrupted him and said that I made a mistake, I could have batted for a while. To this the coach said that I am glad that you realize this.
Let us inform that in this match against CSK, young opener Prithvi Shaw was proving to be very dangerous at one time, but he lost his wicket on a personal score of 36, after which Delhi’s innings was derailed.
