Rishabh Pant was on Tuesday appointed as the captain of Delhi Capitals for the upcoming edition of the IPL, marking a wonderful chapter in his miraculous comeback saga.

The keeper-batter missed cricketing action for 14 months after suffering a horrific car accident in December 2022. “We are delighted to welcome Rishabh back as our captain.

Grit and fearlessness have always dictated his brand of cricket, and not surprisingly, even his road to recovery. “I can’t wait to see him walk our team out once again as we look forward to a new season with renewed passion, vigour and enthusiasm,” said DC chairman and co-owner Parth Jindal in a media release.
