Ponting said that Aman Khan is one such player who has impressed him a lot. The Delhi team traded Shardul Thakur with KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders) to get Aman Khan. Ponting further said that Aman Khan has impressed him a lot in the last two days of practice sessions. Ponting, however, agreed that they have some good power hitters in their middle-order who will try to make up for Pant's absence. He said that when it comes to power hitters in the middle order, they have players like Aman Khan, Rovman Powell and Akshar Patel. Axar's batting has improved a lot in the last 12 months.

He also said that he will find a way to fill Rishabh's gap but he will not get the same skillful player. Ricky Ponting mentioned Aman Khan's name many times during this period. In such a situation, in the absence of Rishabh, his lottery may be held. Talking about the wicketkeeper, Sarfaraz Khan can be one of the new options in the team. A few days ago he was also practicing wicketkeeping.

In the absence of Rishabh Pant, David Warner has been made the new captain of the team. In such a situation, it is certain that he will play. If David Warner is on the field, he will start the innings for the team from one end. Ricky Ponting from the other end had said that Mitchell Marsh would be seen batting in the top order. In such a situation, it is believed that Mitchell Marsh can start the innings with David Warner.
