Recently, Delhi Capitals shared a ‘thoughtful’ picture of their head coach Ricky Ponting and asked the fans to come up with intriguing captions. In the pic, the former Australian captain seems to be in deep thoughts while looking at the ball. With IPL 2020 set to get underway on September 19, many thought must be running over Ponting’s mind and owing to the fact, the comment section of the post was filled with hilarious remarks.

With the presence of Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Shimron Hetmyer, the Delhi-based team boasts of a powerful batting order and the opposition must vary them. In the bowling department, they have the services of South African pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada and he’ll get the support of R Ashwin.
Well, Delhi Capitals are certainly looking a strong team on the paper. However, it will be interesting to see if they can lift their maiden title or not. With the tournament taking place in UAE, all the teams are expected to reach the base by the second or third week of August.
