Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant, who has been sidelined from cricket since December 2022 due to a life-threatening car crash, has been declared fit to participate in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Pant, who missed the previous IPL season due to injuries sustained in the accident, has undergone extensive rehabilitation to recover. The National Cricket Academy (NCA) has cleared Pant to resume his duties as a wicket-keeper batter and lead the Delhi Capitals franchise in IPL 2024.

The news of Pant’s return was celebrated by the Delhi Capitals, who shared a welcome-back post for their captain on social media. 

However, one fan expressed dissatisfaction with the graphic shared by the team, suggesting that even he could have made a better one and jokingly remarked that Pant might go for a drive after seeing it. Pant, known for his jovial personality, found the comment amusing and responded with laughter emojis.

Pant’s journey back to fitness has been remarkable, considering the severity of the accident. He has undergone a 14-month rehabilitation process following the life-threatening road mishap near Roorkee, Uttarakhand. Despite the challenges, Pant remained determined to return to the field as soon as possible. In an interaction with Star Sports, he even recalled negotiating with his doctor to shave off six months from his recovery timeline, demonstrating his eagerness to get back to cricket.

With Pant’s return, Delhi Capitals are gearing up for the upcoming IPL season, which is set to begin on March 22. Pant’s dual role as a wicket-keeper batter and team captain will be crucial for the franchise as they aim for success in the tournament. Despite the uncertainties surrounding his injury, Pant’s resilience and dedication to the sport have earned him praise and admiration from fans and cricket enthusiasts alike.
