Rishabh Pant admitted the thought of missing out on World Cup selection was on his mind as he hit a match-winning 78 to lead Delhi Capitals to the top of the Indian Premier League table.

Pant helped Delhi outplay Rajasthan Royals by six wickets in Jaipur. He smashed six fours and four sixes including the winning hit over the fence during his 36-ball unbeaten knock as Delhi achieved their target of 192 in 19.2 overs.
