It is going to be an emotional comeback for Rishabh Pant in Delhi as the wicketkeeper-batter will play his first game at home since near-fatal crash crash. Pant put out an emotional message through a DC video ahead of his first home game and said that he will have butterflies in his stomach.

“Delhi. Kotla. Ghar. After so long in Kotla, that is a lot of time span, right? Right? When I will enter wearing DC jersey, excitement, nervousness, butterflies and mixed feelings will be there. But, happiness will also be there for yet again swinging the bat in front of my Delhi. Happiness of leading the Delhi team in front of my Delhi. Getting the love and blessings of the fans yet again, in front of my Delhi. I will wait for my Delhi to don the blue colour. See you, yours Rishabh,” DC captain said in the video.

Delhi boosted their NRR with a tremendous victory in the GT game where they bundled out the opposition for just 89 runs. Rishabh Pant earned the player of the match award for his sensational keeping and captaincy.
