Star Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant, the wicketkeeper-batsman and captain of the Delhi Capitals, is poised for a return to competitive cricket following a hiatus caused by an unfortunate car accident. He recently shared a post hinting at his preparedness, underscoring his commitment to a comeback with a photo of a leg workout. Rishabh Pant, who missed IPL 2023 due to accident is anticipated to lead the Delhi Capitals in the upcoming IPL 2024.
