Delhi Capitals were sitting shabbily at 20/4 when Pant came out to bat at No 6. He had big opportunity to prove his importance in the team. Rishabh Pant scored 3 runs in his 9 balls inning against Mumbai Indians in Qualifier 1. Following the match, DC coach Ricky Ponting had a stern-looking conversation with Pant near the boundary line. Perhaps, a clear message as how to use his time at the crease.
