Rishabh Pant Confirmed for IPL 2024 Comeback by Delhi Capitals Officials

Rishabh Pant is currently undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru and is likely to be fit by the end of February. Ahead of the IPL Auction 2024 in Dubai, the Delhi Capitals management has confirmed that Pant will make a comeback as a captain for the franchise in the upcoming IPL 2024 edition. Pant is currently undergoing rehabilitation at the NCA in Bengaluru and is likely to be fit by the end of February. However, Pant’s participation in IPL matches will depend upon the clearance from the NCA managers. After undergoing surgery on his right knee following a near-fatal accident on New Year’s Eve last year, and dealing with injuries to his back and ankles, Pant’s chances of returning to international or domestic cricket has been doubtful. The officials have also indicated that Pant will resume his wicket keeping duties if cleared by BCCI. Otherwise, he would have to restrict himself to batting and fielding only. Pant is also likely to be used as an impact player for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024. In the process of recovering after the accident, Pant had to miss the entire IPL season last year. He has been retained by Delhi ahead of the IPL Auction 2024.
