Pant turning x-factor to match-winning knock: Ponting

Pant hit a match-winning 78 off just 27 balls for Delhi Capitals against Mumbai Indians, which helped his team kick-off their campaign with a 37-run win.

"So I told them I'd play in the provincial tournament, and I asked the board to inform Mumbai Indians and IPL, since it was their decision".

As many as 3 uncapped players took the field during the game and here is a recap of their performance. They lost skipper Rohit Sharma (14) and Suryakumar Yadav (2) early. I've been leading India A as well as my domestic side. "Always a great feeling when you score runs and the team wins", he smiled. "So till the time, I enjoy playing cricket, I am going to play", he added.

Well, Pant was looking in the same mood in the ongoing game against Chennai Super Kings at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

While the Mumbai Indians' contingent travelled to the Garden City for the high-voltage clash against Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore, the India pace spearhead stayed back.

A look at Pant's track record indicates that he has had problems against slow bowlers and Dhoni, who has seen enough of the youngster, will love to exploit the chinks in his armoury.

Sri Lankan star fast bowler Lasith Malinga announced on Friday he was ready to sacrifice earnings from the Indian Premier League to secure a place in his country's ODI World Cup squad.

Yuvraj Singh said, "I can't really say about (World Cup) selection but Rishabh was outstanding today".

He additionally affirmed that the inevitable 2019 ICC World Cup will be his last 50-over competition for the national team, post which he will just concentrate on the T20 to get ready for one year from now's Twenty20 World Cup which occur in October-November. For his fantastic knock, Yuvraj was awarded the "FBB Stylish Player of the Match". "We will be assessing him tomorrow as well". The confidence that he showed, that's the reason why guys chose to play him. We were pretty much in the game in the first 10 overs when we were bowling, but the way Rishabh batted, you've got to give him credit.
