Rishabh Pant will lead the Delhi Capitals in IPL 14. The decision has been taken after Shreyer Iyer was ruled out of the tournament due to an injury to the Delhi Capitals owned by JSW-GMR. This was announced by Kiran Kumar Gandhi, Chairman and Co-Owner of Delhi Capital. After accepting command of the Delhi Capitals, the 23-year-old Pant said that it was my dream to captain the team, and I am very grateful to the owners of my team who felt that I deserved this role.
Rishabh Pant joined the Special Club after taking command of the Delhi Capitals. Rishabh Pant is the fifth young player to captain the IPL. Prior to this, the Indian captains Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Steve Smith and Suresh Raina were the young players who captained the IPL. Kohli and Smith took over the team at the age of 22, while Iyer and Raina took office at the age of 23. Pant has the opportunity to become the leader of the Delhi Capitals in 23 years.

It is worth noting that Iyer’s left shoulder was injured during fielding in the first match of a three-day series against England. Pant, who replaced Iyer, has shown his potential in the last two ODIs. He scored his best in the third game. Pant scored 77 in the second and 78 in the third. Iyer played for the IPL final last year and captained the Delhi Capitals.
When Pant was made captain, Iyer said, “When I have a shoulder injury and the Delhi Capitals have to pick their new captain, I have no doubt that Rishabh is the best man for the job. I want him to take his team forward. I wish you well. At the same time, after becoming captain, I started my IPL journey from Delhi six years ago, ”Pant said. I had a dream of captaining this team, and I am grateful to the owners of my team who felt that I deserved this role. There are so many good and great people around me, I can’t wait to give my best to my team.
