Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif said the DC coxswain has the potential to win games on his own for his team, but his performance with the bat in the 2022 Indian Premier League was not up to par.

“Rishabh Pant will have to decide if he wants to play a full 20 overs or wants to play the role of a pincher. Captain Pant will address what is in the interest of the team.

“Pant has the potential to win the match on his own, but his performance this year was not up to the task. So I feel there is pressure to be successful both as a captain and as a hitter, ”Kaif said on the same show.

Kaif was also disappointed in the Delhi Capitals as they did not fulfill their potential in the 2022 Indian Premier League.

“Delhi has not lived up to its potential this season. This team played well in pieces. If this team wants to win the IPL, then all players will have to show their A-game, and the responsibility lies with the skipper. He will have to lead by example, “he added.
