IPL 2022 Retention: Best Predicted List Of Players To Be Retained By DC
Rishabh Pant is the first player whom Delhi Capitals might retain in the squad for next season. In the absence of injured Shreyas Iyer, the wicketkeeper lead the side in IPL 2021. Taking the team to the top of the points table after the league stage, Rishabh Pant definitely proved that he is an efficient skipper to lead the team.
Moreover, the left-handed batsman also gave an outstanding batting show, smacking 419 runs in 16 games at an average of 34.91 and 3 half-centuries. With Pant becoming the favourite choice of wicketkeeper in the national team, his value in IPL has increased even more. Hence, DC would not like to release him from the squad and would want him to lead the side in the next season as well.
