The latter is out of action due to a shoulder injury, and Rishabh Pant has taken over as the skipper for this season.

Talking through a virtual call, Ponting said that the team missed him, and complimented the Indian on his hairstyle. During the conversation, Ponting asked if Iyer was available to be the 12th man of the team. “Missing you, it doesn’t feel the same. Come and join us, it’s just 7 days (quarantine). It will go fast, trust me. Come on, we need a 12th man. We need someone to run the drinks for us,” Ponting said in the video shared by Delhi Capitals.
