Yash Dhull eager to learn from Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant: IPL 2022: Yash Dhull, who recently took team India U19 to the title victory against England, says he is excited to be a part of the Tata Indian Premier League. Dhull was the captain of India in the U19 World Cup 2022 in the Caribbean.

19-years old Yash Dhull was pocketed by Delhi Capitals (DC) for INR 50 Lakhs in the Tata IPL 2022 Mega Auction. His base price was INR 20 Lakhs.

The youngster is extremely excited to play under the leadership of Rishabh Pant in Delhi Capitals in the upcoming IPL 2022. Dhull loves how Pant encourages his teammates with his funny chatter from behind the stumps.

“Rishabh bhaiya is a great motivator and a very good captain. I want to learn the nuances of a leadership role from him. He is so energetic on the field. The way he enjoys his game and keeps motivating and encouraging his teammates from behind the wickets is amazing,” said Yash Dhull in an interview with TimesofIndia.com.
