Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer, on Sunday, said the doctor has advised wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant to rest for a week before he can get back onto the field. Pant, who picked up an injury during his last match against Rajasthan Royals, missed out on the game against Mumbai Indians with Australia’s Alex Carey donning the gloves in his place.
“We have no idea (when Pant would be available). The doctor said he has to rest for a week and hope he comes back really strong in the next match,” said Iyer, speaking to the commentators after his side’s match against Rohit Sharma and Co.
As it happened
The 25-year-old added that he felt that his side was a few runs short after it went down by five wickets against defending champion Mumbai Indians at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. “We were 10-15 runs short. 175 on the board would have looked completely different,” he said.
