This will be announced after the dates of general elections. As soon as the schedule of IPL 2024 was released, the Delhi Capitals team has made a big announcement. He has said many things about Pant’s role in the team this season.

Delhi Capitals has to play a total of 7 matches in the first phase of IPL.

Said this about Pant

Speaking to ESPN Cricinfo, the owner of IPL franchise Delhi Capitals said that Rishabh is batting well. He is running. He has started his wicketkeeping. He will be completely fit for IPL. I hope that Rishabh will play IPL and he will also captain the team from the first match. The first seven matches, we will play him only as a batsman and depending on how his body responds, we will take a decision for the remaining matches of the IPL.

He further said that we feel very confident, with the return of Rishabh Pant, the balance of the team has become much better. We have a very good squad and a lot of options with players like Tristan Stubbs, who did wonders in the SA20, and Mitch Marsh becoming the captain of Australia’s T20I team. Capitals will play their first match of IPL 2024 against Punjab Kings on March 23 in Mohali.

Also gave update on this player’s injury

Apart from Rishabh Pant, another star player of the team is injured. This player is none other than Enrique Norcia. While Norkia has missed several recent matches due to a back injury, Jindal said the South African fast bowler is fit for their opening matches. Jindal said he is fit. Right now, he is bowling at 80% pace. Next week, he will bowl at 100%. He is going to make his comeback in IPL. He is going to join our camp and it will be good for us. Since joining the Capitals in 2020, Nortje has been a regular member of their team. He has taken 53 wickets for Delhi, including 22 at 23.27 in the 2020 season. Nevertheless, Nortje missed important matches and tournaments like the 2023 World Cup, SA20 and the recent series against India.
