In what has been the latest development as per the reports in Sports Tak, it is learned that Rishabh Pant will attend the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 auction for Delhi Capitals (DC). The event will take place on 19th December in Dubai.
Rishabh Pant is likely to join the likes of head coach Ricky Ponting, director of cricket Sourav Ganguly and owners for auction. He’s expected to pass his suggestions to the management as to who they want in the team for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.
The spotlight will be on Delhi Capitals going into the IPL 2024 auction. They have released 11 players and would be looking to acquire some quality players. They would be hoping to rebuild, especially after having a torrid season last year. Under the leadership of David Warner, they finished 9th on the table.
Delhi Capitals have a purse of INR 28.95 crore. They didn’t have great outings in the last two seasons as they finished out of the top four. This time around they would be hoping to turn the things and win their first title in the league.
It’s fair to say that Rishabh Pant was a massive miss for the team in the last edition. Delhi Capitals looked hopeless and lacked a quality batter in the middle order. His leadership skills were also missed thoroughly as David Warner couldn’t do the job well.
