At 24 years of age, Rishabh Pant, the captain of Delhi Capitals, and a strong captaincy prospect for Team India soon has the world at his feet. Having already broken many records created by MS Dhoni in tests in his short career, Rishabh Pant has established himself as an essential cog of the Indian team in all three formats.

Having taken the Delhi Capitals to the playoffs in IPL 2021 under his captaincy, Rishabh Pant has found that things will not always be easy, no matter how talented he is. In IPL 2022, his team’s fortunes have resembled his batting fortunes. Both have been blowing hot and cold intermittently, with flashes of genius glimpses in between long periods of dullness.

Delhi Capitals have not been able to string together two wins in IPL 2022. In much the same way, Pant has not put together consistent performances this IPL. While not scoring a single fifty this year, he has played some crucial cameos for DC. In trying to correct his sluggish strike rates in IPL 2020 and IPL 2021, Rishabh Pant has overcorrected in a way, getting out in ways considered irresponsible for a captain. Scoring close to 300 runs at an average of 32.67 at a strike rate of 156.38, he is not woefully out of form. But the Rishabh Pant of 2018 and 2019 is still elusive.
