The bad news for supporters of Rishabh Pant is that the great batter, who is presently rehabilitating in Mumbai after an accident, will no longer represent the Delhi Capitals in the IPL in 2023, according to franchise director of cricket Sourav Ganguly.
Pant sustained many injuries, including ligament, wrist, and ankle sprains. His absence will have a negative impact on the franchise’s chemistry.

Pant has been the franchise leader for the past three years and has successfully led them most of the time.
In the approaching major event, it would be intriguing to see who will be handed the leadership responsibilities in his absence, and David Warner might choose that position.

In light of the recent shift in leadership at the BCCI, Sourav Ganguly has been reappointed as the director of cricket by Delhi Capitals. Stuart Binny has taken over as Ganguly’s deputy.
The Delhi Capitals have a good team with a mix of youthful and seasoned players who are expected to perform spectacularly in the mega-event.
The IPL 2023 is scheduled to begin in April 2023, and ten teams will face off against one another for the overall championship.
Since Pant has been India’s go-to batsman in the game’s longest format, his absence will not only affect Delhi Capitals but also BCCI.
The undefeated 97-run performance by swashbuckling wicketkeeper batter, which helped India defeat mighty Australia and retain the Border Gavaskar trophy twice on Australian territory, tops the list of Pant’s incredible Test cricket records.
Despite frequently falling short of winning the championship, Delhi Capitals are consistently listed as favourites.
