"He is in good form": DC assistant coach Amre hails Pant's 44-run knock against GT

New Delhi : Delhi Capitals (DC) assistant coach Pravin Amre showered praise on skipper Rishabh Pant's 44-run knock against Gujarat Titans (GT) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 and said that the wicketkeeper-batter is in "good form".

Pant smashed 44 runs from 35 balls at a strike rate of 125.71. He slammed 5 fours and 1 overhead boundary during his time on the crease. Meanwhile, DC clinched a 4-run win over GT on Wednesday at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

While speaking at the post-match press conference, Amre said that a few good knocks earlier in the tournament boosted the DC skipper's confidence.

"A couple of good knocks gave him the confidence, and today's was special. He single-handedly got 31 runs against an experienced bowler like Mohit Sharma in the 20th over and that really shows that he is in good form," Amre was quoted in a release from DC as saying.

Speaking on Axar Patel's batting at number 3, the assistant coach added that the team management planned to give him some chance with the batting.

"The idea was to give him some chance. So, the plan was to let Indian batsmen go and take on Sai Kishore in the powerplay... He showed maturity in batting. I think that's the reason we got 96 runs in the last five overs," he added.
