IPL 2021: Ricky Ponting sets off for IPL with full precautions: Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting has set off on his journey to join his Indian Premier League (IPL) team and has let his Twitter followers know.

Ponting would be very happy with the form of Rishabh Pant this year. He has been playing one great innings after another and would be the gun player for his team.

But Ponting has another big matter to decide: who would captain Delhi Capitals? With Shreyas Iyer out of the tournament, a replacement needs to be picked. The likes of Pant and Shikhar Dhawan are in the running. It won’t be an easy choice.
