Delhi Capitals were the favourites to win the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier league. However, two consecutive defeats, first in Qualifier 1 against CSK and then in Qualifier 2 against KKR, ended their campaign on a sad note.
DC captain Rishabh Pant has written a heartfelt note to applaud the efforts of the players. He tweeted, “It ended in heartbreak last night, but I could not be more proud of leading this team of exceptional warriors. We battled hard through the season, and while we may have fallen short on some days, we always gave 100%.”
The 23-year-old also thanked owners, support staff and fans for their support to him. “To the owners, management, staff, my teammates and most importantly, our passionate fans, I want to say thank you from my heart. You all made this season special. We will come back stronger,” said Pant.
This was Pant’s first season as a captain in the league.
