Rishabh Pant set to get NOC from NCA ahead of 17th edition of IPL

Delhi Capitals are hoping for a comeback after their dismal performance last year in the IPL.

Rishabh Pant and Sourav Ganguly

Prominent Team India batter Rishabh Pant is nearly set to rejoin the league. After being involved in a horrible car crash on December 30, 2022, the 26-year-old had many injuries. As a result, he had multiple operations and was ruled out of the Asia Cup, the ODI World Cup, and the IPL 2023. 

As matters stand, Pant is expected to return in the next Indian Premier League season and might possibly be the team captain for the Delhi Capitals. According to coach Sourav Ganguly, Pant is anticipated to clear out of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) on March 5 and then go to the Delhi Capitals camp.  The former captain of India underlined, nevertheless, that Pant is a vital member of the squad and that the management of the team will not rush him into enthusiasm. 

Sourav Ganguly spoke to Times of India about the update regarding Rishabh Pant. He said, “He has done everything to get fit and that’s the reason the NCA will clear him. Let Rishabh get cleared on Mar 5 only then we’ll talk about captaincy backups. We are taking a cautious approach with him because he has a very long career ahead of him. We don’t want to push him in excitement.”

“He thinks a lot about strike rate” : Sourav Ganguly on Prithvi Shaw

Prithvi Shaw was seen as the next superstar in Indian cricket after capturing the U19 World Cup. Despite being given a chance to join the Test team, the cricketer did not make an impression. Shaw’s off-field actions soon gained media attention, and he was dropped from the picture. Although Shaw had a dismal season the previous year, Ganguly believes that he will bounce back this time around since the young player is more fit and has scored a great deal of runs.

The former Team India skipper said, “Prithvi is batting really well. He went to play county and scored a lot of runs last season. The only thing about him is that he thinks a lot about strike rate. That needs to be balanced. He is getting fitter too. There was over-reliance on overseas players last year. That shouldn’t be the case this year.”
