Rishabh Pant emphasized his commitment to continuous improvement, stating, “Every time I take the field, it’s a different feeling altogether. I just wanted to bat as much as I could and get better every day. I don’t think much ahead, I take one day at a time, and give my 100%.”

Reflecting on Rishabh Pant’s journey, it’s evident that his path has been marked by resilience and dedication. Since joining Delhi Daredevils, later rebranded as Delhi Capitals, in 2015, Pant has been a pivotal figure in the squad, assuming captaincy responsibilities in 2021. However, a significant turning point occurred in December 2022 when Pant survived a life-threatening accident, underscoring the fragility of life beyond the cricket pitch.

 

In light of his return, Rishabh Pant acknowledges the importance of nurturing not just his physical but also his emotional well-being in the upcoming IPL season. He emphasized simplicity and enjoyment in the team’s approach, stating, “Most of the conversations are pretty simple, we just want to go out there, have fun, not complicate things and give our 100% in all the games.”
