Rishabh Pant is away from cricket due to car accident
Let us tell you that Rishabh Pant, the regular captain of Delhi Capitals, was seriously injured in a car accident on December 31 last year. After this, he remained admitted in the hospital for a long time. Although now he is recovering fast, but in spite of this, it may take around 7 to 8 months for him to be fully fit.
In such a situation, he is not able to play not only for Team India but also for his team Delhi Capitals in IPL. This is the reason why David Warner has been made the captain of the team in his place.
Warner was released by Sunrisers
Under the captaincy of David Warner, the performance of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team had been continuously falling since 2016. This is the reason why the franchise decided to release him last season. However, the Delhi Capitals team played a big bet on this Australian opener batsman and included him in his team at a huge amount of 6.25 crores.
At the same time, Warner could not do much for Sunrisers for the last few seasons. For this reason, he was removed from the captaincy in the middle of the season and replaced by New Zealand’s Kane Williamson.
