Watch: Rishabh Pant vs. Junior Ponting on the football pitch

Delhi skipper Rishabh Pant is keen to make his mark in the ongoing IPL 2022. His side will face Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Delhi Capitals have played 9 matches and won 4 matches. They are in 7th place in the IPL points table.

The Delhi Capitals have released an entertaining video of coach Ricky Ponting’s son Fletcher showing off his footballing finesse against Rishabh Pant during a training session. Since Rishabh Ponting became the Delhi Capitals coach, he shares a cordial relationship with skipper Rishabh Pant.

Earlier, the former Australia captain was isolated from the rest of the squad after a family member, staying with him at the team hotel, tested positive. It was a difficult time for Ponting and his family members.

Ponting has three children with his wife Rianna – a son and two daughters. Fletcher, his son, had two near-death experiences early in his life. On both occasions, Ponting was rendered helpless as he could do nothing but watch his son struggle in these difficult situations.

When Fletcher was six weeks old, he battled meningitis and pulled through, the Ponting family had another torrid time when an eight-month-old Fletcher contracted an infection during hernia surgery.
