Why Virender Sehwag feels ‘there is a zero role for coaches in IPL’

After yet another horrific outing by Ricky Pontin-coached Delhi Capitals, explosive Indian batter Virender Sehwag has lashed out at Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting for team’s poor results.

“Punjab have passed on the axe to Delhi, so now the axe has reached Delhi. When a team wins, the coachers are credited, so when the team loses, they should be held responsible. Even we said so many times that Ponting has done a brilliant job and taken them to the finals, they now reach the playoffs almost every year now. He took all those credits” now he has to take credit as well,” Sehwag told Cricbuzz.

Sehwag further said that IPL is all about man management and coaches must provide players with confidence they need to perform at the highest level.

“This is not the Indian team where they take credit for the wins and for the losses, someone else is blamed. There is zero role for a coach in an IPL team. The big responsibility is man-management and to give the players that confidence, but in the end, a coach looks good only when the team performs well, which Delhi haven’t done it at all,” Sehwag added.
