“A game just beyond bat , ball and 11 players”, Twitter reacts as Delhi Capitals’ gesture for Rishabh Pant goes viral

Due to an unfortunate accident, Rishabh Pant will miss IPL 2023. Delhi Capitals team management showed a sweet gesture towards Pant in their first game against LSG. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Delhi Capitals’ gesture for Rishabh Pant goes viral.

A big miss for Delhi

Pant is a miss for any team and more so for the Delhi Capitals. He was the skipper, wicket-keeper and the most important batter for the squad. The franchise needs three different players to fill this role and that makes their job very difficult.

To start with, Delhi has appointed David Warner as the captain of the squad. He is a quality leader and would be the perfect option to replace Pant as the captain. As a wicket-keeper, DC has Sarfaraz Khan behind the stumps. He is a part-time keeper and it needs to be seen if he can do well. Also, in the middle-order, the youngster will be expected to do well against the spinners. Ricky Ponting also revealed that if things do not work out, there is the option of Abishek Porel, too. The U19 cricketer recently signed up for DC as Pant’s replacement. He is also a left-handed batter and would be a decent choice to have in the middle-order.

Rishabh Pant is the face of Delhi Capitals. A few seasons ago, the franchise stuck with him as the skipper although the original skipper Shreyas Iyer returned to the squad. The southpaw fills so many roles within the team and missing him is a big blow. The team management had a jersey of Pant on their dugout. This was their gesture to show support for Pant and how much they miss him. Here is how Twitter reacted to the same:
