Rishabh Pant proved himself as captain too, Delhi Capitals close to creating history

The team of Delhi Capitals has almost confirmed a place in the playoffs. The team defeated Rajasthan Royals by 33 runs in their 10th match. This is the team’s 8th win of the current season. Rishabh Pant has been given the command of the team for the season in place of Shreyas Iyer. Iyer was injured before the tournament. Delhi’s team reached the final of last season. Delhi’s team has never been able to make it to the IPL playoffs for 3 consecutive seasons. This time under the captaincy of Pant, the team is close to doing so. The team has also reached the knockout rounds in 2019 and 2020.

The team of Delhi Capitals was successful in making it to the knockout rounds for two consecutive seasons in 2008 and 2009. But in 2010 the team was at number 5. Delhi has not even won the title of the T20 league so far. In the last season, he was defeated by Mumbai Indians in the title match. In such a situation, Rishabh Pant would also like to make the team champion for the first time this time. After the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli will leave the command of Team India’s T20 team. In such a situation, there is talk of making Pant the vice-captain of the team.
