Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is all set to lead Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Capitals (DC) from April 9. The Delhi side appointed Pant as the captain after regular captain Shreyas Iyer was ruled out after he dislocated his left shoulder during the ODI series against England.
This will be the first captaincy assignment for Pant, who was bought by the Capitals in the 2016 IPL. He had also become the first player to be retained ahead of the 2018 mega auction.
On his new role, Pant in a statement had said, “Delhi is where I grew up, and where my IPL journey began six years ago. To lead this team one day is a dream I`ve always harboured. And today, as that dream comes true, I feel humbled. I am truly grateful, especially to our team owners, who considered me capable enough for this role. With an amazing coaching staff and a plethora of accomplished seniors around me, I can`t wait to give my absolute best for Delhi Capitals.”
The young-lad has been in good form since the Australia series Down Under and has got major support from his family and teammates. However, there has been extra support from ladylove Isha Negi as well.
