Delhi Capitals were playing their first home game of the IPL 2023 season and to cheer the hosts against Gujarat Titans was Rishabh Pant.

Pant has been ruled out of the entire IPL season following multiple injuries after a horrific car accident in December.

While the wicket-keeper-batter recovers from his injuries, Australian batter David Warner was named the Capitals' skipper for the ongoing season.

With Delhi hosting Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans at the Arun Jaitley stadium for their first home game of the season, the team was boosted by the presence of their skipper in the gallery.

Rishabh was welcomed by Capitals Co-owner Parth Jindal and was seen enjoying himself in the stands for a change.

Earlier, the Capitals' players were seen wishing Pant a speedy recovery.
