Delhi Capitals (DC) are not having the type of campaign they would’ve wanted in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. Despite having a star-studded squad, they have failed to maintain consistency in the tournament. 

The Rishabh Pant-led side has won four out of their nine games in the league and is placed 7th on the points table. They need to pull their socks up if they have to fancy their chances of qualifying for the playoffs. 

Despite not having the best of times in the IPL 15, they have kept the joyous mood in the dressing room. Players are complementing each other well and are often seen having light moments with each other.

On Wednesday (4th May), skipper Pant was seen playing football with head coach Ricky Ponting’s son Fletcher. In a video posted on DC’s official Twitter account, the southpaw can be seen battling it out with the young boy. 

Fletcher gave a tough competition to Pant and was seen dribbling the ball. What impressed the DC skipper was Ponting’s son’s ability to hit the long ball. 

“Just two friends vibing over football. We can't get enough of RP17 and Fletcher playing football together,"DC captioned the video. 

Here’s the video: 

Coming to the last encounter, they suffered a disappointing 6-run loss at the hands of Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). The Pant-led side would be hoping for consistent performances moving forward. They will next face Sunrisers Hyderabad on Thursday (5th May).
