IPL 2023: IPL 2023 will start in a few days. Before the start of this league, the Delhi Capitals team suffered the biggest blow when their captain Rishabh Pant was seriously injured in a car accident. Rishabh will not be able to play the entire series due to his injury. In such a situation, the most important question was which player would be the team captain in his place. Now, answering this question, the Delhi Capitals team management has chosen their new captain.
Akshar Patel has a great responsibility
David Warner will be the new captain of the Delhi Capitals team in the absence of Rishabh Pant in the upcoming IPL season. The Delhi Capitals team management has now announced about this. Announcing this on their social media on Thursday, Delhi Capitals informed everyone that David Warner will be the new captain of their team. At the same time, the vice-captain has also been announced. Delhi Capitals have appointed India star Akshar Patel as the team’s vice-captain for this season.
Sunrisers won the IPL title in 2016
David Warner has done exceptionally well as a captain in the IPL. In the 2016 IPL, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team won the title under his captaincy. In the year 2018, he was ousted as captain by the Sunrisers Hyderabad team. In the same year, David Warner’s name came to light in the ball-tampering incident. The Sunrisers Hyderabad team started to perform poorly in the IPL as soon as he was removed from his captaincy. Following this, last year the Delhi team included Warner in their team. He has now also become the new captain of the team.
Injured pants increased tension for Delhi
Rishabh Pant has performed well for Delhi both as a captain and as a player. Last year, Rishabh was injured in a car accident. Rishabh will not be able to go out into the field for a whole month. The Delhi team got the captain but they still need a player who can replace Rishabh as wicketkeeper.
