The Delhi Wicket keeper was involved in a life-threatening accident when he was going to his home in Roorkee from Delhi in his car, and due to the accident, Rishabh Pant has not been able to play cricket and has missed important tournaments like the IPL 2023, the WTC 2023 Final, the 2023 Asia Cup, and the 2023 ODI World Cup.

According to a news report from RevzSportz, the 26-year-old will feature in next season’s IPL as an impact player. He will come to bat, but he won’t play the role of a wicketkeeper, and if he is not going to keep the wickets, then he may not be the captain of the Delhi Capitals this season as well. David Warner was the captain of the Delhi Capitals last year in place of Rishabh Pant.
