IPL 2019: Rishabh Pant seems to have taken his role as a ‘babysitter’ seriously as he was seen playing around with Shikhar Dhawan’s son Zoravar after Delhi beat Kolkata by seven wickets. Pant was spotted cake-smashing Shikhar’s son after the cake was cut during celebrations. It was all in good humour as all the attention and limelight was being hogged by the little kid. Earlier it was Dhawan who smashed a 97* to help Delhi gun down 179. Dhawan hence was given the duty of cutting the cake and leading the celebrations.
Here is the video of the celebrations where you can also see Shikhar teaming up with Pant to cake-smash Ishant.
It was a big away win for Delhi and hence all the cricketers are in high spirits.
Here is the earlier video of Pant with Dhawan’s son.
Earlier, Pant stitched a crucial 105-run-stand with Shikhar Dhawan as they helped Delhi gun down 179. Pant scored 46 runs.
“I knew it could be my first T20 hundred but the team goal is more important, hence I took that single rather than taking a huge risk,” Dhawan, who bagged the man of the match award, said at the presentation ceremony. Talking about the Eden track, the India opener said, “It’s totally opposite here compared to Delhi. I was telling Dinesh (Karthik) the same thing. It’s a good wicket to bat on. Good for the bowlers as well as the batsmen, makes it interesting. In Delhi we have to adapt ourselves, hence we got to have that skill.”
Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting had slammed the Feroz Shah Kotla ground staff, who provided the home team with a pitch that proved to be more helpful for the Sunrisers Hyderabad earlier this month. Dhawan added, “I really enjoyed in the first six overs but I knew I had to stay till the end. I was getting the right thoughts and I had to take the game deep. Rishabh is such a big hitter he can always hit it out of the park.”
