Delhi Capitals ruffled Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by 19 runs in their final league game of the IPL 2024 season. Shaping 208 runs with the bat upfront, the Capitals bowlers restricted LSG’s star-studded line-up to 189, courtesy of a sublime new-ball gambit from Ishant Sharma.

After the match, winning skipper Rishabh Pant claimed that his team still holds an outside chance of qualifying for the IPL 2024 playoffs, and expressed his gratitude towards fans for supporting him during his year-long absence from the sport.

Rishabh Pant says team still in playoffs contention

Delhi Capitals registered their seventh win of the season by defeating LSG at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium on May 14. Owing to their uneven IPL 2024 campaign, they finished their league stage at number five on the 10-team points table, i.e., just outside the playoffs reckoning.

However, Rishabh Pant is still optimistic about his team’s playoff prospects, considering that they are still in within a slight mathematical possibility of a potential top-four finish. The dashing wicketkeeper-batter also stated that his team had a few injuries this season. While speaking during the post-match presentation ceremony, he said:

“We started the season with lot of hopes but there were few injuries here and there, few ups downs. As a franchise you can't complain all the time. We are still in contention of playoffs. Some things you can control some not. Last game I did not play, I am not saying I would have won the match but it would have given us a better chance.”

Rishabh Pant, who made his return to competitive cricket through the IPL 2024 season after a gap of 15 months owing to a near-fatal car crash, expressed his gratitude towards the fans for their unwavering support throughout the tournament.

“The support I got from the whole country was really good to see. Everyone knew that I was playing after one and a half year so loved every bit of it.”

With Delhi Capitals facing a near-certain exit from IPL 2024, Rishabh Pant will now be seen gracing the Indian blue at next month’s T20 World Cup 2024 in West Indies and USA.
