IPL shared a post on their official Twitter handle, showing Pant interacting with various Delhi squad members. This is the second time Pant has attended a Delhi Capitals match this season, as he was also present during their home match against Gujarat Titans at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Although his presence boosted the Capitals’ confidence, they lost the match to Gujarat Titans by six wickets.
“Look who made a visit to the @DelhiCapitals training here in Bengaluru. Hello there @RishabhPant17 #TATAIPL | #RCBvDC,” IPL official Twitter handle captioned the post.
In another video post by Delhi Capitals Pant said, “I am good recovering really well. Better than I thought. So getting better every day. I just came for the NCA, you guys happend to be here so I thought I will meet my friend and all of the team. So I just came to see how the practice is going on. We love to be around the boys. I love that especially. But this is something that I can’t control but my heart and soul are with Delhi so all the best for their next match. I suggested to Axar Patel that you are batting well so do not bat much in nets.”
The Delhi Capitals have yet to open their account on the points table after losing four consecutive games. So far, the team led by David Warner has failed to put up a collective effort on the pitch, with their batting performance being particularly underwhelming.
Despite being ruled out of the IPL 2023, Pant’s visits to the team have been a morale booster for his teammates. The Delhi Capitals will be hoping to turn their fortunes around in their upcoming match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
