Rishabh Pant can come to watch the match against Gujarat Titans in Delhi on Tuesday. For this, the franchise will have to take permission from the Anti-Corruption and Security Unit of BCCI. If allowed, Rishabh can also sit in the dugout.
An IPL source told PTI that Rishabh has always been an integral part of the team for Delhi Capitals. It is expected that he will be available in the team against Gujarat. He will be in the VIP box with the team owner, but there is a possibility that he may also come to the dugout for a while.
