Former Indian batsman and Delhi Capitals' assistant coach Mohammad Kaif has said that captaincy will take young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant's game to the next level. Pant was appointed captain of Delhi Capitals for IPL 2021 after regular skipper Shreyas Iyer was ruled out due to injury. Iyer hurt his shoulder while fielding in the first ODI against England last month. A few days back, the DC management revealed that Pant will lead the side in IPL 2021.

Mohammad Kaif announced his retirement from cricket on Friday, nearly 12 years after he last played for India. Kaif chose the history day of July 13, the day he led India to the Natwest triumph 16 years ago
