Rishabh Pant Back For Delhi Capitals

Having filled in as captain in Rishabh Pant’s absence last season, the 37-year-old faced criticism for his below-par batting performance, particularly his strike rate. With the burden of captaincy now lifted, Warner aims for an improved showing in the upcoming season.

The 2024 IPL marks Rishabh Pant’s return to cricket after a hiatus of 14 months. Pant had been out of action since December 30, 2022, following a severe car accident that resulted in life-threatening injuries, necessitating two knee surgeries.

Pant initially took over the captaincy of the Capitals during the 2021 season due to Shreyas Iyer’s injury. Despite Iyer’s return for the latter half of the season, Pant retained leadership. Prior to the 2022 mega auction, Shreyas was not retained, solidifying Pant’s position as the permanent skipper.

Delhi Capitals will commence their campaign against the Punjab Kings on March 23 in Mohali. This match marks the return of Rishabh Pant as captain after being sidelined for over a year.
