Not just Rishabh Pant, IPL 2024 to see 5 much-awaited comebacks as franchises receive grand boost in title charge

The 2024 edition of the Indian Premier League will see five much-awaited player returns – three of whom are Indians!

The 2024 edition of the Indian Premier League is set to begin on March 23, with defending champions Chennai Super Kings meeting the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai. The season marks the return of some of the leading cricketing stars from around the world in the tournament; while some will make a comeback after injury absences last year, a fair few had opted out of the previous editions but return to bolster their franchises this year.

The Indian wicketkeeper-batter endured a near-fatal car crash in December 2022, and there were considerable doubts over his cricketing future. Throughout the next year, Pant underwent rehab and recovery focussed on a swift return to competitive cricket action; earlier this month, he was finally cleared by the National Cricket Academy (NCA) to take part in the IPL.

Pant, who leads the Delhi Capitals in the tournament, will bolster the Capitals’ batting attack significantly, and the franchise will aim for an improved performance this year. Last season, the side finished a dismal ninth.

A standout performance in the IPL could also pave the way for Pant to clinch a spot in India’s T20 World Cup squad.

As IPL 2023 saw Bumrah sidelined due to a back stress injury, the Mumbai Indians fans will be eager to see their frontline Indian bowler returning to action in the upcoming edition. To their immense delight, Bumrah is in his prime form going into IPL 2024.

Bumrah produced a remarkable display in the recent Test series against England, securing 19 wickets in four Tests. Bumrah hasn’t played in white-ball cricket since the ODI World Cup last year, however; his last T20 appearance goes even further back in August 2023, when he made a comeback to professional cricket against Ireland.
