Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has slammed Rishabh Pant for his poor captaincy against Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) last night. Delhi Capitals lost to RCB by 1 run while chasing a 172-run target in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Delhi Capitals (DC) were expected to win the match. They were needed 14 runs off the final over. The big hitters like Rishabh Pant and Simron Hetmyer were on strike. However, a brilliant final over by Siraj turned the game in RCB’s favor by 1 run.

What Sehwag said about Pant:

While speaking to a channel, Virender Sehwag said that he was unimpressed by Rishabh Pant’s captaincy in the match as he did not use his bowling resources well.

Pant couyld not win the match against RCB for DC

“I won’t give him even five marks out of 10 for his captaincy because you just can’t make such mistakes. If your main bowler isn’t bowling, your calculations go wrong – that’s what captaincy is all about. You need to take care of that. A captain must manage his bowling resources according to the situation,” Virender Sehwag on Rishabh Pant.

“You need to learn that. Or else you hand over the ball to whomsoever you want. The capability of a skipper is measured by how he turns the game around. He needs to make changes in the bowling or field position accordingly.” he added.

Pant hit a boundary instaed of a six and DC lost the match by 1 run

Rishabh Pant arrived on the crease in the 3rd over itself and batted till the final ball. Still, he could not bag victory for DC. He scored 58 runs off 48 balls and piled up fewer runs during the middle overs.

“So, if Rishabh Pant wants to become a good captain, he needs to keep these small things in his mind. Play smart cricket, then only you can become a smart skipper,” Virender Sehwag added.
