Rishabh Pant Posts Cryptic Message on Instagram After One-Match Ban

Delhi Capitals’ captain Rishabh Pant found himself embroiled in controversy after being handed a one-match ban for maintaining a slow over-rate during an IPL 2024 match. The dynamic wicketkeeper-batter, known for his explosive performances on the field, was conspicuously absent during their crucial encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru on Sunday, May 12.

While Pant was absent from the playing field, his presence was felt on social media as he posted a cryptic message on his Instagram account just hours before the pivotal match. The post featured a serene image of a hazy winter morning, accompanied by the enigmatic caption: “Can’t say much.”

Within the image, a thought-provoking quote captured attention: “The only thing we have power over in the universe is our thoughts.” The timing and content of Pant’s post raised eyebrows among fans and cricket enthusiasts alike, sparking speculation about its possible significance in the context of his recent ban.

Pant’s absence from the match and his cryptic social media activity came in the aftermath of Delhi Capitals’ third over-rate offence of the season. Initially fined Rs 12 lakh and then Rs 24 lakh for the first two violations, Pant’s leadership was put under scrutiny after the team’s third transgression resulted in a ban for the captain himself.

Despite the setback, Pant showed his commitment to the team by traveling to Bengaluru to support his teammates in their crucial encounter. However, his Instagram post hinted at a deeper introspection or contemplation amid the turbulence surrounding his leadership and the team’s performance in the IPL.
