Gujarat Titans beat Delhi Capitals by 6 wickets in IPL 2023 to register their second win in the tournament as Rishabh Pant was present in the the stadium to watch the match.
Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant visited a cricket stadium for the first time after car accident last December. DC made arrangments to get the wicketkeeper/batter to the stadium and once his visuals came on the giant screen at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi during the match between DC and Gujarat Titans (GT), a huge roar happened. The sight of Pant back to the stadium, albiet in the stands, was heartening for the DC fans. Pant is still struggling to walk properly without crutches as he continues to be on recovery path upon knee operation.
Titans beat Capitals by 6 wickets to register their second successive win in IPL 2023. Post the match, Pant met all the players from DC camp and even visited the Titans dressing room. He met his good friend and India teammate Shubman Gill too. The Titans shared the heartwarming photo on Twitter and the pic is getting viral.
