Ponting: We didn't play to win the trophy
Would it be fair to call Delhi Daredevils the weakest team of IPL? Well, at least Dhoni's CSK and Sharma's MI would definitely stammer while calling them that. Delhi's overall performance surprised nobody this season either.
After Delhi's 14th and final match we had a word with the legendary former Aussie captain Ricky Ponting who is currently working with DD as the batting coach. Ponting looked impressed with the team's overall performance this season especially in the matches played after their elimination. "Delhi Daredevils have always been an entertaining side and this is not the maiden occasion when they changed other teams' fortunes in IPL," Ponting said.
When we discussed how the last couple of matches affected the points table, the coach said: "I'm surprised to see how Punjab hit new lows by losing almost all their matches in the second half of the season."
A recent statement given by Punjab's co-owner Preity Zinta showed her pleasure to see Mumbai Indians exiting the tournament. When we pointed it out while discussing Punjab's performance with Punter, a loud laughter is what we got in return. "We lost our both matches against Punjab and beat Mumbai to keep Punjab alive in the tournament. So, at least we are not at fault." witty Ricky added.
In the comment section, let us know your take on Preity Zinta's statement about Mumbai Indians' exit.
