Rishabh Pant has been improving as a captain in IPL over the years and he often helps his players when they are under pressure in tough situations. Pant did it once more as he was seen sharing some advice to Kuldeep Yadav to restrict Jos Buttler after he leaked 14 runs from five balls in an over.
IPL 2022 has commenced and Delhi Capitals are playing well this season. However, they haven’t started well against Rajasthan Royals as the opening pair smashed 87 runs from first 10 overs after being invited to bat first. Kuldeep Yadav has been bowling well in the tournament but Jos Buttler smashed him for big hits .
Kuldeep Yadav was bowling the ninth over of the innings and he leaked 14 runs from the first five balls. Buttler slammed him for a boundary and six. He was again facing the last delivery of the over. Captain Rishabh Pant came to the rescue of Kuldeep as he was seen advising Kuldeep before the last ball. Kuldeep then bowled the last ball wide outside off and Buttler managed to take just a single playing it towards deep point.
Here is how Twitter reacted to the incident.
#DCvRR kuldeep yadav needs a baby sitter and someone to keep telling him that he is the best. He does not have the mental strength to cope when things become tough. He just crumbles ... So won't be surprised if he does not make it to team India. Yuzi is exactly opposite.— Ajay Sharma (@ajaynvini) April 22, 2022
He must be happy!
Jos butler has perfected the art of teeing off not recklessly.— Sarb (@ChandlerStinso1) April 22, 2022

400 runs for jos butler in this #IPL2022 , how much do you think he will score by the end of this season?— Vk45 🇮🇳 (@sportslovervk45) April 22, 2022
Jos the boss!
This is what great batsmen do, didn't have the best of the starts but once set they have attacked the best bowler in the opposition. Eager to see how Kuldeep Yadav and DC respond to this.— Rohan.l (@Rohanl20320211) April 22, 2022
