Want Pant sitting beside me in dugout every day of week in IPL: Ponting

NEW DELHI, Jan 21: Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting wants "cultural leader" Rishabh Pant in the dugout every day of the week in the forthcoming IPL.
Ruled out of the IPL after surviving a horrific car accident in the last week of December, India wicketkeeper and DC skipper Pant is currently recovering after undergoing a series of surgeries in Mumbai.
"You can't replace those guys, simple as that. They don't grow on trees, players like that. We've got to look at - and we already are - a replacement to come into the squad, a wicketkeeper-batsman.
If he's actually not physically fit enough to play, we'd still love to have him around," Ponting said on the ICC Review.
"He's the sort of cultural leader around the group, being the captain, and that attitude and infectious smile and laugh he has is what we all love so much about him.
"If he's actually able to travel and be around the team, then I want him sitting beside me in the dugout every day of the week.
"I'll certainly be making sure, come the middle of March when we get together in Delhi and start our camps and stuff, if he's able to be there, then I want him around the whole time."
India are set to play Australia in a much-anticipated upcoming four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy series, with the two teams also currently on track to meet again in the ICC World Test Championship final in June.
Ponting believes Pant will be a huge loss for India against Australia.
"I think he's ranked in the top six-seven Test batsmen in the world, isn't he?" Ponting asked (Pant is currently seventh in the ICC men's Test batting rankings).
"When he first started, we probably all thought he was going to be a better T20 and one-day batsman than a Test batsman, but it's actually worked the other way. His Test cricket has been remarkable.
"Even the series coming up against Australia, the four-Test series there, we know how he played against Australia in Australia last time.
"He'd have been looking forward to that series, and the rest of the world would have been looking forward to watching him play."
