The matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL) are fought fiercely but off the field there is also great camaraderie among the players.

IPL being a massive T20 league involving 10 teams and now in its 16th edition, provides a platform to former greats too to be involved with the league. Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, among others.

Ponting, coach of Delhi Capitals met Virat Kohli on the sidelines ahead of his team’s match against RCB on Saturday. During that brief meeting, there was Ponting’s son, Fletcher William Ponting.
