Rishabh Pant Has Been Suspended:

The 62nd match of the tournament is witnessing a fixture between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Delhi Capitals at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Both teams are all boosted up and ready for the upcoming challenges. But Delhi Capitals has faced a huge setback as their skipper Rishabh Pant is absent in this game. But there is a huge reason of that. 

Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant faces suspension for one match due to breaching the IPL Code of Conduct. His team’s slow over-rate during the match against Rajasthan Royals led to this penalty, marking Pant’s third offense this IPL season. Consequently, he is missing Delhi Capital’s important match against Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The match is important for both teams. At that point, Rishabh Pant’s exclusion will make a big impact on the team. Their qualification is still depending on some crucial conclusion. But Delhi will try hard to bounce back. However, Kumar Kushagra is replacing Rishabh Pant in the team.

Axar is Captaining the team:

In Rishabh Pant’s absence, Axar Patel has taken the helm of the captain and leading the team against Royal Challengers Bengaluru. Before the match, Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting opened up about passing the captaincy baton to Axar Patel. Ponting said, “Axar Patel will be our captain tomorrow. He’s obviously been vice-captain of this franchise now for the last couple of seasons. Obviously, very experienced IPL player, experienced international player, very sensible guy, understands the game really well. He’s really excited, to be honest.”

However, Against Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Axar Patel won the toss and opted to bowl first. After winning the toss, he said, “Will bowl first. Bangalore wicket is always good. It’s a chasing ground. When we start well, we dominate the game. Rishabh was angry, and had appealed as well against the suspension. He’s at the ground here, motivating the team. Kushagra comes in for Rishabh. Rasikh Dhar is in.”

Delhi Capitals Playing XI: Jake Fraser-McGurk, Abishek Porel, Shai Hope, Kumar Kushagra, Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel(c), Kuldeep Yadav, Rasikh Dar Salam, Mukesh Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed
