IPL 2019: Rishabh Pant Keen to Perform for Delhi Capitals
Rishabh Pant has set his sights on the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL), to deliver goods for his team Delhi Capitals. Pant has done exceedingly well in the recent outings. The IPL 2019 edition has a lot on offer.
The 21-year-old southpaw Pant has further vowed to give his ultimate best. As of now, the Capitals are yet to lift the maiden IPL trophy.
“I am looking forward to making a winning contribution,” Pant told Sportstar.
In 2010 and 2012, Delhi were table toppers. The current lot is a mixture of youth and experience, and they have got the potential to spoil anyone’s party with Shreyas Iyer at the helm of affairs.
Pant believes the blend of the mixture has a lot to play in and he expects the combination will reap the rewards in the forthcoming widely-acclaimed league.
“This year, the Delhi team is a good combination of youngsters and experienced players. Youngsters have the energy, and experience is equally important. We have the right mix,” Pant maintained.
Pant aims to dedicate the IPL trophy to fans:
As the twelfth edition of the IPL will kick off on March 23, Pant is hopeful to lift their first-ever coveted IPL trophy. Pant added they are eager to give the trophy to their respected fans.
“This season, we believe that we are going to win, for the fans and for our team. We can give them the trophy this year,” Pant signed off.
Besides, the upcoming edition will kick off following the culmination of India-Australia limited-overs series. Pant has recently bagged the position in the Twenty20 International (T20I) squad followed by five-match One-day International (ODI) squad.
In 2018, Pant became youngest cricketer to amass 1,000 IPL runs when he smashed 63-ball 128 against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
In the eleventh edition of the IPL, Pant featured in 14 matches to amass 684 runs at the staggering average of 52.61. Overall, in 38 matches, Pant amassed 1248 runs at an average of 35.65. He slammed a hundred and eight fifties under his belt following his IPL debut in 2016.
Pant, who has shown the world what he has in the store, has a major chance to settle down his spot in the national fold further. Meanwhile, the limited-overs series against Australia would be crucial for the youngster.
The home campaign will run between February 24 and March 13.
