3 Players who can step up for Delhi in Rishabh Pant’s absence for Indian T20 League 2023
Rishabh Pant’s car accident and his resulting unavailability due to his recovery process isn’t just a big loss for the national team but has also come as a huge downer for the Delhi franchise. Earlier it was announced that Pant would miss the upcoming Indian T20 League 2023, which must have shocked Delhi fans as much as his accident at the end of last year.
Delhi were already in trouble having performed poorly at the mini-auction, now with Pant out they must be going into panic mode. Cricket however is a funny game and things could turn out totally different at the end of the Indian T20 League. For that, however, other Delhi players would have to step up and fill in for Rishabh Pant. Let’s look at three players who would have added responsibility in Rishabh Pant’s absence.
As Delhi gear up for the 2023 Indian T20 League season, the question on everyone’s mind is who will be appointed as the team’s captain. Delhi have a few options to choose from, including David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, and Rovman Powell, all of whom have led teams in the past. Even the likes of Axar Patel have been discussed as potential choices.
Out of all the options, Warner should be the front-runner for the role. As an Indian T20 League-winning skipper with extensive experience, he has the ability to forge an excellent understanding with head coach Ricky Ponting. He is the perfect batter to lead the team from the top of the batting order.
Furthermore, with Warner being a left-hander, he could be required to bat through the innings and take on positive match-ups. Now that Pant is not available, Delhi’s middle order is packed with right-hand batters. While it may not be reasonable to expect Warner to always be there for the middle overs, his leadership and experience will be invaluable for the team in the upcoming Indian T20 League 2023.
