Pant – who did not have an IPL to remember in UAE – has been in ominous for India across formats in the last three months. His good run of form started from Australia where he played a couple of breathtaking knocks. Pant also helped India win the Brisbane Test with brilliant innings on the final day. This will be the first time he would be in charge of the Capitals – a franchise he started his IPL journey with.

Iyer had dislocated his shoulder in the first ODI against England and had to miss the remaining two matches.
