Indian wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant is gearing up for the ICC World Cup 2024 with intense preparations. Pant made a triumphant return to cricket in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year after being sidelined for a year due to injury. As the Delhi Capitals’ skipper, he demonstrated his resilience and skill, which has now led him to join the Indian camp in the United States ahead of the ICC’s major event.

Pant’s journey back to form was on full display during the IPL 2024 season. Leading the Delhi Capitals, he played 13 matches and scored 446 runs, boasting a strike rate of 155.40 and an average of 40.55. His standout performance came against the Gujarat Titans, where he scored an unbeaten 88.

However, despite his efforts, a loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 12 dashed their playoff hopes, and a subsequent defeat to the Lucknow Super Giants on May 14 ended their campaign.
