He is rumoured to be dating a young entrepreneur and interior decorator from Delhi – Isha Negi. Recently, Isha has revealed her favourite cricketer during a question-answer session and surprisingly he is not Rishabh Pant.
In January 2020, Rishabh Pant posted a photo with the love of his life Isha Negi from their trip to Jammu & Kashmir to make their relationship official. Isha also returned the favour with a photo along with a heartwarming picture.
“I like me better when I’m with you,” Rishabh Pant had captioned the picture.

Rishabh Pant to lead Delhi Capitals
Meanwhile, Rishabh Pant has been appointed as the skipper of Delhi Capitals for IPL 2021 after Shreyas Iyer was ruled out of the entire tournament with a dislocated shoulder. The management showed trust in the young wicket-keeper batsman despite having the likes of Steve Smith, Ajinkya Rahane, and Ravichandran Ashwin in the squad.
Speaking on his new role, Pant admitted that he is humbled to get this opportunity and his only aim will be to guide Delhi to the trophy in the upcoming season.
“Delhi is where I grew up, and where my IPL journey began six years ago. To lead this team one day is a dream I`ve always harbored. And today, as that dream comes true, I feel humbled,” Rishabh Pant said.
“I am truly grateful, especially to our team owners, who considered me capable enough for this role. With an amazing coaching staff and a plethora of accomplished seniors around me, I can`t wait to give my absolute best for Delhi Capitals,” he added.
Delhi Capitals will begin their IPL 2021 campaign against Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
