Pant Leads, Bats Early; Nortje Fit for Opener; Brook at No. 6 in Capitals’ IPL 2024, Reveals Co-owner

The T20 Madness is coming back in India. The glorious second edition of the Women’s Premier League is all set to go live on February 23. The Indian Premier League is coming back on March 22. Less than a month is left for the high-voltage T20 action. Before starting the season, Delhi Capitals provided some major updates about their squad. 

DC’s Update on Pant:

After the injury, Rishabh Pant is coming back in the IPL 2024. He resumed practicing ahead of the tournament. Pant is the captain of the franchise. Last year, because of the injury, he missed the entire IPL. Before the upcoming season, DC management shared updates about Rishabh Pant. 

Rishabh Pant will lead the Delhi Capitals team at the beginning of IPL 2024, but he won’t be the wicketkeeper for the first part of the season, according to Parth Jindal, one of the owners of the team. Jindal said, “Rishabh is batting. He’s running. He has started his wicketkeeping. He is likely to be fully fit for the IPL. I am expecting Rishabh to play IPL and he will lead from match one. First seven games we are going to play him only as a batter and depending on how his body reacts, we will take a call for the rest of the IPL.”

Updates on Nortje, Richardson, and Harry Brook:

Nortje, who was on the sidelines due to injuries, is all set to play and is likely to join the training in Visakhapatnam, as mentioned by Jindal. He had healed from a groin injury and played ten matches in the 2023 season before taking a break to go home for personal reasons.

Jindal said, “He’s fit. Right now, he is bowing at 80% intensity. Next week, he will bowl at 100%. He’s going to make his comeback in the IPL. He is going to join our camp and should be good to go for our first game.”

Jindal also mentioned that the Australian fast bowler, Jhye Richardson, probably won’t be ready to play in the early matches of the tournament. He’s still recovering from a side strain that kept him out of the second part of the BBL and the home ODI series against West Indies.

Harry Brook is a big name in the DC squad. Jindal expressed excitement about England’s hard-hitter, Harry Brook, contributing significantly in the lower batting positions. He emphasized Brook’s potential to make a big impact towards the end of the innings, implying high hopes for his role in the team’s success.
