Rishabh Pant is planning a return to the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2024. Sourav Ganguly, former India captain and Director of Cricket for the Delhi Capitals, provided this encouragement recently. Let’s go into Pant’s expected comeback, his recovery process, and what’s next for this explosive wicketkeeper-batsman.
Since the 2021 IPL season, Rishabh Pant has led the Delhi Capitals. However, the great player was forced to miss the IPL 2023 owing to injuries received in a life-threatening traffic accident in December of the previous year. Despite the difficulties, Pant showed tenacity and drive in leading his players.

The Delhi Capitals have begun their training camps early, with a few players taking to the field at the Jadavpur University second Campus Cricket Association of Bengal facility in Saltlake. Rishabh Pant arrived in Kolkata on Thursday and stayed till November 11, contributing to the team’s early preparations.
Pant is on his way to fitness. He was relaxed and had no knee restraints as he walked about the training camp in Kolkata. And the news is that he may come back during their series against England in 2024.
