Delhi Capitals cricketers spent quality among each other as they celebrate an auspicious festival of colours, Holi at their team hotel on Monday, March 25. Holi is one of the popular festivals in India where many people celebrate with joy and enthusiasm by throwing colours on each other, symbolizing good over evil and the arrival of spring.

In a video shared by Delhi Capitals on its Instagram handle, skipper Rishabh Pant can be seen splashing water on his teammates and other players were smearing colorful powders on each other. Pant and David Warner applied colours on each other's face to celebrate the auspicious occasion.

Delhi Capitals had a disappointing start to their IPL 2024 campaign as they lost opening match to Punjab Kings by four wickets in Mullanpur. Though DC lost but the team was delighted with the return of Rishabh Pant to competitive cricket. Pant was sidelined for 15 months after suffering injuries due to horrific car crash on Delhi-Dehradun Highway on December 31, 2022.

Rishabh Pant received green signal from BCCI after fitness clearance certificate from National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru to play competitive cricket. However, the 26-year-old had a quiet outing as he scored just 18 off 13 balls, including two fours.

Sanju Samson's incredible unbeaten captain knock of 82 off 54 balls helped RR post a solid total of 193/4 on the board before bowlers restricted LSG to 173/6 in 20 overs.

Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals have faced off against each other 27 times in the history of IPL, with Jaipur based leading 14-13. The upcoming encounter will be their 28th match against each other and Delhi Capitals will look to equal the win-loss record while Rajasthan Royal will aim to extend their lead.
