Rishabh Pant injured in the game against RR

Rishabh Pant has been one of the most consistent players for the Delhi Capitals over the past few years hitting big shots and registering a lot of runs to his name.

The wicketkeeper-batsman is seen as a potent replacement for the legendary Indian captain MS Dhoni who announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket in August.

This year too he has been a big asset in Delhi Capitals successful campaign winning 5 out of 7 matches. 

Capitals lose against MI:

In the match against Rajasthan Royals where Delhi Capitals won handsomely, Rishabh Pant picked up an injury in his leg and was struggling in keeping behind the wickets.

As a result, he missed the next match against Mumbai Indians which Delhi lost by 5 wickets and 2 balls to go. Due to Pant’s injury, Delhi had to include Alex Carey as the wicketkeeper and had to drop Shimron Hetmyer as only 4 overseas players can be included in the squad.

15-20 more runs could have changed the complexion of the match said Shreyas Iyyer as he hoped that Rishabh Pant would be back by next week. 

What the doctor said:

After the match, Iyyer said that doctor told that Pant needed a week’s rest, and only after that he can make a comeback on to the field. Capitals will surely hope that Pant recovers as soon as possible and their good going campaign does not suffer much.
