IPL 2021: “It’s disappointing to be on losing side” – said Rishabh Pant after loosing against RCB

Just another one. Another fizzer on a daily basis. It did not start very well for Delhi, particularly because of with their in-form openers falling cheaply for a change.

One needs to feel for Pant however after all the opportunity while playing for India, the duty of being a chief has constrained him to play this innings. One should recall, notwithstanding, that it truly might have gone in any case. In the event that solitary he cut lose a touch more. Two or three runs more.

The newly nominated captain, Rishabh Pant, was opposed to his instinct and attempted to manage some damage, but maybe he overdid a little in his capitancy’s at the nascent stage of the game. Before Hetmyer entered, Stoinis brought them the momentum with a small cameo of 22 of 17 balls, and almost matched AB to a shot in a remarkable clinical demonstration to punish non-Yorkers.

A 21-run 18th over brought Delhi roaring back into the game, but the incredible Harshal Patel and Siraj both held their nerve and ensured that the CSK debacle was nothing more than an aberration. At the post match presentation Pant said “Obviously feeling disappointed, specially when you are on the losing side.”

“They got 10-15 runs extra on this wicket. Hetty (Hetmyer) played a brilliant innings, because of him we got close to the target. In the last over, we were thinking whoever gets the ball has to finish the job for the team. That’s what we were planning, in the end we were one run short.”
