The picture shared by Suresh Raina showed the injured Rishabh Pant wearing a bandage on his right knee and a visible scar on his left knee.

Meanwhile, the IPL season 16 is set to kick off on March 31. The season opener will be played between defending champion Gujarat Titans and four-time champion Chennai Super Kings.
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals will play their first game on April 1 against Lucknow Super Giants. The setback has ruled Pant out of the tournament. Pant’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by the Delhi Capitals, who had relied on his explosive batting. However, in the absence of Rishabh Pant, the Australian left-handed opener David Warner will lead the side.
