IPL 2023: Players who can lead Delhi Capitals if Rishabh Pant is unfit following horrific injury

IPL 2023: One of the most prominent youngsters of team India, Rishabh Pant, met with an accident on 30th December and suffered from multiple injuries. It is because of the same reason, Pant is expected to stay away from the cricketing action for a long time and won't be making any appearances with team India in any format.

According to the reports released by BCCI, Rishabh Pant is expected to make his way back to cricket after 3-4 months and that also depends on how soon he will be able to recover.

Rishabh Pant is an important player for Team India. However, Pant also holds a leadership position with Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League. According to medical reports, it is expected that Pant might not be able to take part in the upcoming season of the tournament. His absence will hit the franchise in a big way because the player is irreplaceable.

Rishabh Pant was given the leadership of Delhi Capitals in 2021 when Shreyas Iyer injured himself in a training session. Under the leadership of Pant, Delhi Capitals witnessed a sudden rise and they had a good season. In 2022 as well, Delhi Capitals finished fifth in the point table but gave tough competition overall.

Replacing Rishabh Pant won’t be an easy task for the franchise but if he is unable to recover from his injuries, the team will have to look out for an option.

3 players who might be given the responsibility of the team in IPL 2023

Delhi Capitals has always come across as a solid team in the history of IPL. However, they have not won a trophy yet. When Pant was selected as the new skipper, the franchise had high hopes for him. In this article, we have compiled a list of three players who might be given the responsibility of the team in IPL 2023.

1) David Warner

In the absence of Rishabh Pant, David Warner will be the leading contender for the position. It is because of two reasons. Firstly, he carries a good amount of experience to lead a team. Warner has led Sunrisers Hyderabad for 6 years and it was only in his last season the team had a devastating ending.

Another reason to make Warner the leading man is because of his IPL credentials. In 162 IPL games, Warner has scored 5881 at a strike rate of 140.7 and an average of 42. He also carries good experience in T20 international cricket and can handle the pressure on the ground.

2) Prithvi Shaw

Prithvi Shaw became part of the Delhi Capitals in 2018 and since then he has been the most crucial player for the franchise. Considering his term with the franchise, he is also one of the most senior players in the franchise. Shaw knows the culture of the team and he has a good reputation with his teammates.

Overall in 63 matches of IPL, Shaw has scored 1588 runs at an average of 25.21 and a strike rate of 147.45. Delhi Capitals always prefer a young captain and considering their past decisions, Prithvi Shaw can be named as the leading man for the upcoming season of IPL.

3) Mitchell Marsh

Mitchell Marsh carries the captaincy experience as he led the U-19 team of Australia to win the world cup. However, Marsh carries no experience in leading an IPL team. Marsh joined Delhi Capitals in 2022 and had a major contribution towards the team’s success.

Overall in IPL, Marsh has scored 477 runs in 29 matches at an average of 22.71 and a strike rate of 123.58. He is one of the best middle-order batters and Delhi Capitals can consider him for leading the team looking at his T20 experience.
