Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant revealed that the players’ roles are yet to be defined but they are all enjoying each other’s company and the atmosphere in the dressing room is extremely positive.

Ahead of the IPL 2022 season, the new-look DC franchise will be hoping to secure its very first IPL title. They have the team for it and all that’s left is for them to coordinate and deliver the results. So far, it is headed in the right direction.

At the moment, we are trying to understand what the new players need during nets. We are discussing the roles the players can take up during matches and the kind of team environment we would like to set up. We have spoken to the new players about the team environment we’ve had in the last few years.

It seems like the team has been made for the first time. I observed every player during my first practice session with the team and it looks like everybody is in a good frame of mind. Everybody is enjoying each other’s company,” Pant said in a press release from the franchise.

DC head coach, Ricky Ponting, expectedly commands the respect of the room anywhere he goes. It is the same inside the DC camp, where the players look upto him and are constantly hoping to pick his brain. The former Aussie captain, being the team man he is, also helps to raise the energy levels, as per Pant.
