Pant’s Road to Recovery
Rishabh Pant has been on a long road to recovery after sustaining injuries in a car crash towards the end of 2022. The wicketkeeper-batsman did not play a single competitive game in 2023, and his return to action has been eagerly anticipated. Despite expectations of his return during the ongoing Test series between India and England, Pant is still not close to making a comeback. The exact date of his return remains uncertain as he continues to recover from his injuries.
Pant’s Confidence for IPL 2024
Despite his prolonged absence from the game, Rishabh Pant remains confident about his availability for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024, which is set to begin next month. If Pant manages to return, he is likely to lead the team as captain. In the previous season, veteran opener David Warner took charge in Pant’s absence. Pant’s return would be a significant boost for Delhi Capitals as they look to turn their fortunes around after two disappointing campaigns.
While Rishabh Pant is confident about playing in IPL 2024, Ricky Ponting is still unsure about his involvement.
