Delhi Capitals has announced Rishabh Pant as the new Captain as Shreyas Iyer is most likely to miss out IPL 2021.
Well the most important question this announcement raises is- Are Delhi Capitals looking at Pant as the new M.S.Dhoni?
It might come as a surprise to many fans as Delhi management decided to go with inexperienced Pant rather than the likes of Rahane, Dhawan or Smit. All three of them have a fair amount of experience and qualities to lead a team.
On the other hand it will be interesting to see how Pant displays his authority and leadership qualities under pressure. Pant has performed very well against Australia and England. But can he take this momentum and perform the same way as a captain? Will this pressure take a load on his performance? Delhi Capitals has taken a huge gamble and only time can tell how things will turn out for them.
