IPL 2022: CSK outplayed us in all departments, says DC captain Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant, wicket-keeper batsman for Team India and captain of the Delhi Capitals, was involved in a serious car accident in December 2022. As a result, he will likely miss at least six months of cricket, including the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy and the IPL 2023. Now, former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, who is returning to Delhi Capitals as Director of Cricket, has confirmed that Pant will miss the 2023 edition of the lucrative league.

Ganguly, who served as an advisor for the Capitals in the 2019 IPL before becoming the BCCI’s chief, has confirmed his return to the franchise and stated that Pant’s absence will be felt despite the team’s strong roster. “Rishabh Pant is unavailable for the Indian Premier League. I am affiliated with Delhi Capitals. Rishabh Pant’s injury will have an impact on the Delhi Capitals’ performance during the Indian Premier League “Ganguly stated to reporters in Kolkata, as reported by Sports Today.

Pant had cuts on his forehead and several other parts of his body, as well as abrasions on his back and a torn knee ligament. Pant underwent successful knee surgery after being transferred to Mumbai, but his injuries were so severe that a full recovery will take longer than anticipated.

In Pant’s absence, Delhi Capitals may consider promoting Australian opener David Warner to captain. Warner has led Sunrisers Hyderabad for over five seasons and even led them to a championship in 2016. Another contender is Warner’s opening partner at Delhi, Prithvi Shaw, who led the Indian U-19 team to victory. Since DC’s squad revolves around Pant and not just another captain, they will need a wicketkeeper in addition to Phil Salt or, if necessary, they may ask Sarfaraz Khan to keep wickets.
