Delhi: Delhi Capitals’ biggest loss in the IPL 2023 season is their captain and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. It was already certain that Rishabh will miss the season after suffering a serious leg injury in a car accident. The team CEO has predicted who will be the game changer for the Capitals in the absence of Rishabh Pant, who is a firework batter. David Warner, one of the greatest batsmen of all time in IPL, is not named but he says.
‘Prithvi Shah is an actor who performs well every year. The team won a few games last season. But later he fell ill and could not shine. Apart from that, Shaw had no problems with lack of form. I think Prishvi Shah will be the game changer this year. Dhiraj Malhotra added that Shah’s batting in the Powerplay will be crucial for Delhi Capitals’ progress in the tournament.
Rishabh Pant’s absence is a big setback. Rishabh is our strongest No. 4 or No. 5 batsman, not just as a captain. He controls the match from behind the wicket. No bowler can stop Rishabh. So Rishabh Pant will be missed. The danger of the ball is terrible. But glad to see him come back strong. It is hoped that Rishabh Pant will come back with more strength. Ricky Ponting said that Rishabh is expected in the dugout. We want that. But it will be subject to BCCI’s approval.
Delhi Capitals Squad: Rishabh Pant(out), Khalil Ahmed, Yash Dul, Aman Hakeem Khan, Praveen Dubey, Sarfaraz Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Lalit Yadav, Mitchell Marsh, Mukesh Kumar, Mustafizur Rahman, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Norkya, Vicky Ostwal, Manish Pandey, Ripal Patel, Axar Patel, Rovman Powell, Riley Russo, Phil Salt, Chetan Zakaria, Ishant Sharma, Prithvi Shah, David Warner.
