Former Australian cricket captain and current Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting debunked the myth surrounding his bat from the 2003 World Cup final ahead of the 2024 Indian Premier League match between Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. There had been speculation that Ponting’s bat, used during his explosive innings in the 2003 World Cup, contained a spring mechanism that allegedly boosted his performance.
