David Warner praises Rishabh for his comeback in IPL 2024: Great to see him back


David Warner praised Rishabh Pant for his stellar comeback in IPL 2024 for DC. Warner penned down a heart-felt note as he expressed gratitude towards the fans for cheering for the franchise throughout. Warner hailed Pant for his miraculous recovery and for showcasing his immense commitment to the game. Despite Pant returning to the DC team, the franchise could not make it to the playoffs as they finished off at the 6th spot.

Warner took to his Instagram to post snippets from his IPL 2024 journey as the explosive batter gears up for his last dance in Australian colours in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Warner also congratulated the KKR team for lifting the coveted IPL 2024 trophy.

“Now the IPL has finished I will post a thank-you. Congrats to KKR for winning this year. Very well deserved and were very consistent. To our fans, DC Toli thank you for always cheering us on and supporting us. It wasn’t our year this year, but we gave it our all. Some outstanding performances from our young guys and how good was it to see. It was also great to see Rishabh Pant back playing again after his accident. To witness the comeback first hand and how committed he was to playing, simply fantastic. Until next time,” Warner wrote.

Warner lauds Pant

An IPL veteran himself, Warner suffered an injury to his thumb mid-way through the season and went onto miss a couple of matches for DC. Warner could manage to score only 168 runs at a strike rate of 134 in 8 matches of IPL 2024. He was replaced by the young Australian batter Jake Fraser-McGurk, who took the tournament by fire with his explosive hitting.

Warner has always put up great examples of sportsmanship, yet again he lauded Pant for his dedication and recovery after a car accident in December 2022. Due to Pant’s absence, Warner had led DC in the last season, and they finished at the bottom of the table in IPL 2023. Meanwhile, Pant made a spectacular return to competitive cricket as he finished off as the highest run-scorer for DC with 446 runs in 13 matches, which included 3 fifties.
