And, former Indian pacer, now Delhi Capitals’ Assistant Coach, Ajit Agarkar was full of praise for the Capitals captain on the DC Show before their match against Lucknow Super Giants.
Speaking on the show, Agarkar stated that, Pant reads the game very well, which can be seen from the way he has developed his game and the progress that he has made as a youngster. He also added that the progress he has made in a short span of time as a young player makes him a good leader.
