Young glovesman Rishabh Pant, facing flak for his performance behind the wickets during the just-concluded ODI series against Australia, briefly worked with former India stumper Kiran More here Friday ahead of the IPL. While Pant is part of Delhi Capitals, More is wicket- keeping consultant with three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Mumbai Indians.
The two teams will clash here Sunday as they begin their campaign in the season 12 of the popular T20 tournament.

"Yes, More did work with Pant, but it was just for a brief period," sources in the know told PTI.
More has worked with 21-year-old Pant, who has represented India in all the three formats - Test, ODI and T20I - in the past too.
A journalist also posted a picture of More working with Pant on his Twitter handle.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians posted on their official Twitter handle a video of their new member Yuvraj Singh having a chat with his former skipper Sourav Ganguly at the Wankhede stadium here.
Ganguly, a former India captain, is associated with Delhi Capitals as its advisor.
