Rishabh Pant will lead the Delhi Capitals in the 2021 season of the Indian Premier League in the absence of regular captain Shreyas Iyer, the franchise announced on Tuesday.

Iyer has been ruled out of IPL 2021 due to a shoulder injury picked up during India’s ODI series against England.

 

“Delhi Capitals today announced Rishabh Pant as Captain for the upcoming season of the VIVO Indian Premier League that starts on the 9th of April. Pant will step in as captain for the 14th edition of the tournament, for the injured Shreyas Iyer, who hurt his left shoulder during the recently concluded India-England ODI series,” the franchise said in a statement.
