Rishabh Pant is strongly expected to captain Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024. Rishabh Pant survived a car accident with critical injuries and is not playing in the 2023 IPL series. Did not play for India in the World Cup. He suffered many losses due to injury. In this case, there are reports that Rishabh Pant will get fully fit and prepare for IPL cricket and international cricket in February.
But it is still not certain whether he will land as a specialist batsman/captain or wicketkeeper/batsman. However, the Delhi Capitals team management is eagerly awaiting Rishabh Pant’s return to the field and is confident. When Rishabh Pant participated in the Delhi Capitals team camp held in Kolkata, there was a lot of talk that he will definitely play in the 2024 IPL series.
Delhi Capitals team director Sourav Ganguly was also present at that time. Head coach Ricky Ponting was also present. Bund participated in the debate on player retention and release. With the IPL auction scheduled to take place on the 19th, Bundy also participated in the advisory meeting, hinting that he is going to play in the 2024 season.
In a car accident, he injured 3 major ligaments in his right knee. Due to this he could not play any cricket. He then underwent knee ligament surgery and was undergoing rehabilitation. Recently, Rishabh Pant has been posting positive videos about his recovery from injury and his return to cricket.
It is known that Rishabh Bund has started batting, but it is still an unknown mystery whether he is physically fit for the wicket keeper job. There has been no news from BCCI about Rishabh Pant since last July. But there were reports that he has recovered from the injury and has started batting and keeping in the nets.
In this case, if the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru gives a certificate that Rishabh Pant is fully fit, it is expected that Rishabh Pant’s first series will be the IPL series. In the absence of Bund, David Warner took over the captaincy of Delhi Capitals. But in 14 games, Delhi Capitals finished at the top of the table with 5 wins and 9 losses.
