Pant’s return to the team also marked his reinstatement as the captain, a role he assumed after Australia’s David Warner led the team in his absence. Despite their valiant efforts, the Capitals fell short of qualifying for the playoffs in the previous season. With Pant back at the helm, the team aimed for a strong start to the 17th edition of the IPL.

However, Pant’s comeback game against Punjab Kings did not witness his usual dominant performance. He managed to score 18 runs off 13 deliveries before departing. Although his innings were brief, Pant displayed glimpses of his batting prowess by hitting two boundaries, much to the delight of the spectators.

As Pant reaches this significant milestone in his IPL career, fans and cricket enthusiasts eagerly anticipate more memorable performances from the talented wicket-keeper batsman in the remainder of the tournament.
