The Indian Premier League(IPL) 2024 will have 10 teams competing for the title. Out of these teams, the league is always filled with champion teams and underachieving teams. One of the biggest underachieving teams in the league is the Delhi Capitals. The Capitals have not got their hands on the title in the IPL at all. In fact, they have made it to just one final in the year 2020 under the leadership of Shreyas Iyer.

There are still some talented players in the side and the one person that they were waiting for is none other than Rishabh Pant. Pant is one of the highest run scorers for the franchise and also led them into the playoffs in the 2021 season. Unfortunately, the Gabba hero had to miss the previous season due to an accident that put him out of action for a long time. There is still the debate on if the powerful southpaw will play this season as well.

Pant to play as captain

It has been reported recently that Pant will be leading the Delhi franchise in the upcoming tournament. The only thing he will avoid is wicketkeeping. This will mean that the Capitals will need someone to keep wickets for the side. It is still great to hear good news about Pant who will be back in action in the tournament. We might miss the iconic chatter behind the stumps, but the fans will still look forward to seeing the powerful left-hander perform in the league.

Pant has been one of the best players for the Capitals and he will want to give his best performance. He will still be tested since it is not easy to get back to your best form after a long break from the game. It will also be interesting to see how Pant will plan his season, especially as a captain. All eyes will be on Pant as he will step onto the field after a 1-year break. The Delhi Capitals will also want to come back after a disappointing season last year.
