IPL 2023, Delhi Capitals Wicketkeeper: At IPL 2023, Delhi Capitals will play their first match on 1 April। The biggest question is who will do wicketkeeping for the team in Rishabh Pant’s absence
IPL 2023, Delhi Capitals: The 16th edition of the Indian Premier League ( IPL ) is scheduled to take place from 31 March। The Delhi Capitals team will start the campaign against the Lucknow Supergiant from 1 April 2023 without their regular captain Rishabh Pant। In Pant’s absence for this season, the captain is handed over to David Warner, but the biggest question is, who will take over the responsibility of the wicketkeeper for him? The team has only Phil Salt as the regular wicketkeeper but the team can only feed four foreign players, so this problem does not end here।
Rishabh Pant was badly injured on 30 December 2022 in a fierce car accident। He is away from cricket and has been resting at home since surgery in Mumbai। He may take a year to return to cricket। In such a situation, who will do wicketkeeping for Delhi Capitals in the upcoming season of IPL is a big dilemma? The captain of the team is David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Rowman Powell are the batting backbone of the team। Four foreign players have been completed if Enrique Norkhiya is the team’s leading bowler in bowling। In such a situation, it is difficult to replace Phil Salt, so who will take responsibility behind the wicket for the team.
Who will do wicketkeeping for Delhi Capitals?
If we look at the entire squad of Delhi once, the team does not have a regular wicketkeeper who is fitting the place in the team। KS Bharat was part of the team last year, so this time he has been bought by Bhai Gujarat Titans। In such a situation, David Warner, who has experience of wicketkeeping in some international matches or young Sarfaraz Khan can be entrusted with this responsibility। Phil Salt is in squad but is finding it difficult to be replaced by four foreigners। In such a situation, Sarfaraz remains the only option, recently he was also seen with Gloves in Delhi’s practice session.
