Delhi Capitals have named Rishabh Pant as their captain for the upcoming Indian Premier League 2021 after Shreyas Iyer was ruled out with a shoulder injury.


Iyer had dislocated his left shoulder while fielding during the first ODI against England in Pune earlier this month.


This will be Rishabh Pant’s debut as IPL captain. The 23-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman has captained Delhi’s state team in the past. He was also Delhi's skipper in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament in 2017.


"Rishabh Pant will be our Captain for #IPL2021


"@ShreyasIyer15 has been ruled out of the upcoming season following his injury in the #INDvENG series," Delhi Capitals tweeted.


"Delhi is where I grew up, and where my IPL journey began six years ago. To lead this team one day is a dream I've always harboured. And today, as that dream comes true, I feel humbled. I am truly grateful, especially to our team owners, who considered me capable enough for this role.


"With an amazing coaching staff, and a plethora of accomplished seniors around me, I can't wait to give my absolute best for Delhi Capitals," Rishabh Pant said after being named the skipper.
