IPL 2020: Injured Pant out of action for a week, confirms Shreyas

Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer confirmed that their injured wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant will be out of action from IPL 2020 for at least a week.

Pant injured his leg in Delhi's previous match, against Rajasthan Royals in Sharjah.

Pant missed Sunday's game against Mumbai Indians which Delhi lost by five wickets in Abu Dhabi.

Speaking at the post-match presentation, Iyer said the doctor has advised at least a week's rest for Pant.

"We have no idea, I spoke to the doctor. He said he has to rest for a week. Hope he comes back really strong," Iyer said when asked about Pant.

Delhi play Rajasthan Royals (October 14) and Chennai Super Kings (October 17) over the next week.
