In such a situation, Pant, the captain of IPL team Delhi Capitals, has been ruled out of IPL 2023. In such a situation, now the franchise will have to find a new captain. According to the information, Australian batsman David Warner can be given the command of the team. He has already captained the T20 league and has also made Sunrisers Hyderabad the champion.

According to the news of Times of India, David Warner could be the new captain of Delhi Capitals in place of Rishabh Pant.
