IPL 2020 – DC vs MI

Rishabh Pant will miss a week of IPL 2020 because of the hamstring injury he picked up during the Delhi Capitals’ game against the Rajasthan Royals on October 9.

“I spoke to the doctor and he said he is going to be resting for a week,” the Capitals’ captain, Shreyas Iyer, told host broadcaster Star after the side’s loss to the Mumbai Indians. “Hope he comes back strongly after this break.”

Pant was seen limping towards the end of the Royals’ innings, when he took Varun Aaron’s catch to seal a win for his side.

He has been the second-highest run-getter for the Capitals this season so far, having scored 176 runs in six innings at an average of 35.20 and a strike rate of 133.33.

Pant’s absence means Shimron Hetmyer may also miss the Capitals’ upcoming games as the only other wicketkeeping option they have is Australia’s Alex Carey. With Marcus Stoinis, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje almost certainties for three overseas spots, Hetmyer is most likely the one to make way for Carey, just like he did for Sunday’s game against the Mumbai Indians.

On the positive side for the Capitals, they have five wins from seven games and currently sit second on the points table, tied with the Mumbai Indians on points.
