Rishabh Pant received a standing ovation from the crowd in a heartwarming moment upon his comeback to the world of cricket, marking his return to the field for the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024.

In a heartwarming moment, Delhi Capitals (DC) wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant received a thunderous standing ovation upon his return to the field after a long absence due to a car accident. The emotional incident unfolded at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mohali as DC took on the Punjab Kings in the opening match of IPL 2024.

Pant, sporting his familiar DC jersey, entered the field at number four after David Warner’s dismissal. The crowd erupted in thunderous cheers and applause, giving him a well-deserved standing ovation as his name was announced by the commentator. Watch the video below:

Warner’s dismissal came on the sixth ball of the seventh over. Harshal Patel outsmarted him with a short, slow delivery aimed at the middle and leg stump line. Warner, attempting a shot, was beaten as the ball zipped past him, resulting in a catch by Jitesh Sharma. With Warner out, the stage was set for Pant’s much-anticipated return.

Pant, who suffered the accident in December 2022, missed several key tournaments, including the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. His return to competitive cricket has been highly anticipated by fans and the cricketing community alike.

With an impressive IPL career of 98 matches and a total of 2838 runs with an average strike rate of 147.0, the southpaw will now look to add more to his stats in this season of IPL 2024.
