[WATCH]- Ricky Ponting Asks His Son To Bowl Fast Deliveries To Rahul Tewatia

Ricky Ponting, the head coach of Delhi Capitals (DC), took his son Fletcher to the practice session at the Narendra Modi Stadium before his team’s IPL 2024 match against the Gujarat Titans (GT) on Wednesday, April 17.

In a video shared by GT on X (formerly Twitter), Tewatia is seen asking Fletcher whether he is primarily a batsman or a seam-bowling all-rounder. Fletcher responded that he bowls fast, prompting Ponting to challenge him to demonstrate his bowling skills.

Fletcher was observed bowling to Rahul Tewatia as Ricky Ponting looked on with admiration.

Here’s the video:

Fletcher’s bowling action bore a striking resemblance to that of veteran England paceman James Anderson. Additionally, he executed a delivery that appeared to mimic the style of GT star Rashid Khan. Towards the end of the video, Tewatia commended Fletcher’s bowling by giving him a high-five.

“Deserves to be in that WT20 squad” – Ricky Ponting views on Rishabh Pant

Before the match against the Gujarat Titans, Ricky Ponting spoke to PTI about his admiration for DC skipper Rishabh Pant’s comeback. Pant has already made notable contributions with the bat, prompting Ponting to express his preference for the left-hander as India’s wicketkeeper for the T20 World Cup in June.

“Do I believe whether Rishabh should be there in the World Cup squad? Absolutely I do,” Ponting said. “He deserves to be in that WT20 squad by the end of the IPL, I think we have seen Rishabh play the way we have seen him play in last six seasons of IPL and now back playing for India. If I was picking a team, I would have Rishabh Pant in it every day of the week.”

Ponting is confident that Pant will continue to improve as the season advances. DC has positive experiences in Ahmedabad, having defeated GT at the venue last year, and they aim to replicate that success on Wednesday.
