IPL 2021: KKR, on the other hand, will enter the competition on the back of Virat Kohli’s big win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Eliminator, thus brimming with confidence.
Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant has a huge task ahead of him as his team takes on Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata Knight Riders in the second qualifier of the Indian Premier League 2021 on Wednesday. In their previous game, DC lost to Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier with MS Dhoni’s heroism in the final over.
KKR, on the other hand, will enter the competition on the back of Virat Kohli’s massive win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator, thus brimming with confidence.
So, what will be Pant’s strategy going into the match? Former Australia all-rounder Shane Watson has advice for the young wicketkeeper-batsman ahead of the all-important match.
“My advice to Rishabh Pant is to play with freedom, have an air of arrogance and confidence – that he does when he is at his best in that last match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), with those one-arms. Sixes,” the news agency quoted Watson as saying ANI.
“He’s absolutely insane, the skills he has, and to me, the advice would be to go out and build that confidence. Don’t let the circumstances, the leadership, determine how you play. You go out and Play with freedom – take the game forward,” he said.
“If you think you can line up a bowler, you are completely committed to it and take him – because he is a match-winner. He can take the game away from the opposition very quickly – And everybody wants to see that, the team wants to see him and as a leader he wants to see that too.”
