Rishabh Pant Shows MS Dhoni’s Leadership Qualities: Kuldeep Yadav. Kuldeep Yadav credited DC skipper Rishabh Pant for his stellar show in IPL 2022.
Kuldeep Yadav has taken 13 wickets in seven games so far in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. It was a remarkable turnaround for the left-arm wrist-spinner, who had not seen much action in the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) playing XI in the previous two seasons. However, his new team, the Delhi Capitals, has brought out the best in him, and Kuldeep is pleased.
The 27-year-old credited DC captain Rishabh Pant for his outstanding performance, even comparing him to the legendary MS Dhoni. Notably, Kuldeep achieved remarkable success in international cricket until Dhoni took over at the helm. He used precision to guide the young spinner, and the results were obvious. Furthermore, Kuldeep’s downfall began following Dhoni’s final match in national colors.
Rishabh Pant: Kuldeep Yadav deserves credit for my performance in this IPL.
Rishabh Pant is now guiding the star spinner, and he believes the southpaw is displaying Dhoni-like leadership qualities. “I believe Rishabh is displaying some of MS Dhoni’s characteristics behind the stumps.” He guides well and maintains his composure on the field. Wicketkeepers play an important role in spinners’ success,” Kuldeep said in a press release issued by the Delhi Capitals.
“Rishabh deserves credit for my performance in this IPL as well.” “We’ve come to an agreement,” he added. The young spinner also stated that Delhi Capitals assistant coach Shane Watson has assisted him with the mental side of the game.
“Shane Watson has also been extremely helpful to me.” I consider myself extremely fortunate to have worked with Watson for three or four sessions. He has been especially helpful with the mental aspect of the game. I’ve told him a lot about my experiences prior to joining this team. “I communicate openly with him,” the 27-year-old said.
Dhoni and Pant have been compared since the latter’s debut in international competition. While the 24-year-old has made a name for himself through impressive performances, he has a long way to go.
