"If he gets a chance to play with us, I am sure he will be seen batting in the top three. I am very sure that this year is going to be very good with us."

Delhi Capitals, the franchise team of the Indian Premier League, added Australia's Steve Smith to the auction by bidding it this year. Smith, who captained the Rajasthan Royals, was released before this year's auction. Delhi head coach Ricky Ponting said Smith's association would benefit the team.

Ponting said, "I think that after the release of the franchise team that he played for so long, now the hunger will be increased this year. If he gets a chance to play with us, I am sure He will be seen batting in the top three, let me say again if he gets a chance. I am very sure that this year is going to be very good with us."

"I met him a few days ago and he is very keen to show a good game on the field this season. One thing is to be auctioned again next year, if he does well this year then After this, the bid in his name will look high in the auction. "

"He is a part of our team. It is a great thing. As I said, even if he does not get a chance to play, a player like him who has such a good experience of T20 cricket is with our team. It will be very good for me. I am very excited to be working with him once again."
