I have the impression that this is my second debut: Pant’s much- anticipated return to the IPL


The BCCI on Tuesday gave Pant permission to participate in the IPL. On March 23, his club, the Delhi Capitals, will play the Punjab Kings in Mohali to begin the IPL season.

Rishabh Pant will return to the field 14 months after surviving a life-threatening car accident, and the wicketkeeper-batsman is “nervous” as if he were a debutant.The BCCI gave Pant permission to participate in the IPL on Tuesday. On March 23, Delhi Capitals, his squad, will play Punjab Kings in Mohali to begin the IPL season.

In December 2022, while traveling to his house in Roorkee, he was involved in a horrible vehicle accident. He experienced several injuries, and his right knee required ligament reconstruction surgery. In addition, he had to tend to a broken ankle and wrist.

“I feel both anxious and excited at the same time. Pant stated in a Delhi Capitals release, “It feels like I’m going to make my debut again.”

Following the incident, the 26-year-old went through a protracted rehabilitation and recovery procedure at the National Cricket Academy.

It truly is a marvel that I can play cricket again after everything that I’ve been through. My sincere gratitude goes out to everyone of my supporters and well-wishers, but especially to the BCCI and the NCA personnel. I continue to feel so strong because of all of their love and support,” Pant remarked.

“I am excited to return to Delhi Capitals and the IPL – a tournament I enjoy so much,” Pant continued after entering the pre-season training of the Delhi Capitals. I am incredibly appreciative to our team owners and support personnel for being at my side the entire time, providing me with complete support, direction, and cooperation at every turn. “I am eager to play in front of the fans and reunite with my DC family.” With the BCCI deeming Pant suitable as a wicketkeeper-batter, he would be expected to bat as well as keep wickets.

At the Capitals table at the IPL auction the previous year, the southpaw was in attendance.The heavy-hitter has represented India in 33 Test matches, 30 One-Day Internationals, and 66 Twenty20 matches.
