IPL 2020: Injured Rishabh Pant is out for at least one week, says Shreyas Iyer
ABU DHABI: Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer on Sunday said wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant are going to be out for a minimum of every week thanks to a hamstring injury he suffered recently.
Pant had injured himself within the match against Rajasthan Royals on Friday.
DC missed Pant as they slumped to a five-wicket defeat against defending champions Mumbai Indians on Sunday and lost the highest place within the points table.
Australia’s Alex Carey replaced Pant within the playing eleven.

Iyer said the team remains within the dark about the India stumper’s return.
“We haven’t any idea (on Rishabh’s availability), the doctor said he has got to rest for every week and hope he comes back really strong,” Iyer said at the post match presentation ceremony.
Opting to bat, DC made competitive 162 for four, a target which MI chased down with two balls to spare and Iyer admitted that they were 10-15 runs short.
“Definitely, i might say 10-15 short, 170-175 on the board would have looked completely different. we actually omitted when Stoinis got out, he was hitting the ball rather well and also seeing the ball sort of a football, that was the most error that we did and something that we actually got to work on,” he said.

Iyer also lamented DC’s poor effort on the sector on Sunday.
“Apart from that the trouble we placed on the sector , we could definitely work thereon as there have been a couple of misfields and dropped catches also . Overall they outplayed us altogether the departments. we’d like to figure on our mindsets before subsequent game.”
He said despite looking one among the highest teams during this year’s IPL, DC still got to work on certain aspects of the sport going forward.
“If we could have squeezed in two more wickets after the powerplay we might are on top. it’s really important for us  to not take any team lightly and be positive in our approach. There are still certain elements we’ve to figure and that we will use the break to figure thereon .”
Winning skipper Rohit Sharma was proud of the efforts put in by his teammates thus far within the tournament.

“The quite cricket we are playing gives us tons of confidence. it is vital to possess momentum with us, and it had been an ideal day for us, getting those crucial two points. We did everything right, but there are still some things we will improve on,” he said.
“We were good with the ball and restricted them to 160-odd. Clinical with the bat, but not such a lot towards the top . we’d like one set batsman to end off the sport generally , and a few set batsmen got out today, but i do not want to point fingers because chasing has been difficult during this tournament.
“It’s important to possess partnerships and that we did that today, which got us over the road ,” he said.
