IPL 2020 | ‘Not going to over-train’: Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting
Delhi Capitals’ head coach Ricky Ponting spoke after the first practice session with his team ahead of the IPL 2020 in UAE. Ponting, after a three-hour long practice session, said he is not planning to over-train the team ahead of their first match. “It is an unusual time we have got - having three weeks - I think we had slotted in about 20 training sessions before our first game, which in my opinion are too many, so we are just going to see how the boys are shaping up after every training session and then take it from there,” Ponting said. “Last year, I had as much fun as I’ve ever had with a cricket team, and I want to make sure we can replicate that this season as well. I think it’s really important that when you have success, you understand why you have it. I’ll be banking on the guys we still have from last year - it’s important for them to remember the positives. If they can impose that on the younger and new guys in the team, before you know it, you’re going to have this really infectious attitude around the team again which is what I’m all about as a coach,” he added.
