‘Rishabh Pant was angry’: Axar Patel reveals DC’s skipper’s ordeal after facing one-match suspension

Pant incurred a fine of 30% of his match fees for breaching the Code of Conduct during the clash against the Rajasthan Royals on May 7

Delhi Capitals will face a challenging match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru without their skipper, Rishabh Pant, who is sidelined due to suspension. As they gear up to take on Royal Challengers Bangalore led by Virat Kohli, both teams are vying for a spot in the playoffs. With vice-captain Warner also nursing an injury, the responsibility of leading the team falls on star all-rounder Axar Patel.

Addressing the situation ahead of the match, Axar Patel expressed, “As you know, Rishabh was angry about being banned, bowlers are late but the captain gets punished. But he’s told us he’ll be with us..

Why will Rishabh Pant miss the RCB vs DC game?

Rishabh Pant will miss the RCB vs DC game after a one-match ban imposed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) following his team’s slow over-rate in a previous match against the Rajasthan Royals.

This marks the third instance of Pant being penalized for the same offence, leading to his suspension for one match. Despite an appeal by the 2020 runner-up, the ban was upheld. Additionally, Pant incurred a fine of 30% of his match fees for breaching the Code of Conduct during the clash against the Rajasthan Royals on May 7.
