In response, Gujarat Titans made a valiant effort but fell short, managing to reach 220-8 by the end of their innings. David Miller's fiery 55 off just 23 balls and a quickfire 21 not out from Rashid Khan kept the Titans in the hunt till the final over.

However, Mukesh Kumar held his nerve in the last over, ensuring Delhi's victory by a narrow margin of four runs. This crucial win keeps Delhi's playoff hopes alive in the T20 tournament.

Pant's exceptional performance in the IPL, especially after a challenging period following a car accident in 2022, has not only showcased his batting prowess but also his resilience. His return to form and fitness has impressed selectors and team management alike, increasing his chances for a spot in the national team for the upcoming World Cup.

Delhi's director of cricket Sourav Ganguly and coach Ricky Ponting have expressed confidence in Pant's abilities, both with the bat and behind the stumps. His stellar contributions in the IPL have further solidified his case for inclusion in India's squad for the prestigious tournament in June.

With impactful performances like these, Pant continues to enhance his reputation as one of the most dynamic players in the cricketing world. As the IPL season progresses, all eyes will be on him as he aims to further bolster his credentials for international success.

In conclusion, Pant's batting blitz against Gujarat Titans not only secured a crucial victory for Delhi Capitals but also reaffirmed his status as a key contender for India's T20 World Cup squad.
