Back in 2017, Rishabh lost his father Rajendra Pant, due to cardiac arrest. Two days after the demise, the Delhi man when onto play a crucial knock of 57 for his IPL franchise.

Delhi Capitals started their 2022 IPL campaign brightly with a 4-wicket victory over Mumbai Indians, but lost the following match to IPL newbie, Gujarat Titans by a margin of 14 runs.

Pant in the opening match against Mumbai Indians managed to score only 1 run, but came back strongly against Gujarat- scoring 43 off 29 deliveries.

The Capitals will take on Lucknow Super Giants on Thursday in their third match at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Delhi are currently placed 5th in the standings.
