David Warner will be the captain of the Delhi Capitals in the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League. He will be replacing regular captain Rishabh Pant, who is injured and will not be able to play in the IPL this year.
Warner has been appointed captain of the Indian cricket team, but he will have a deputy named Axar Patel. Axar is a very good all-rounder and he’s been playing really well in the Border Gavaskar Trophy. He’s also become a very good batsman and bowler.
The Delhi Capitals signed Warner to a contract worth 6.25 crore. He played well for the team last season and was an effective opener. He scored 432 runs in total, including five half-centuries. His best score was 92*(58).
Warner has been playing in the Indian Premier League for a long time and he has been the captain of a team in the tournament. He also knows a lot about the league because he was the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad. The team hasn’t said anything yet about whether Warner is coming back, but he has a lot of experience with the league and could be a great captain for a new team.
David and Axar will be the captains of the Delhi Capitals. They will have a deputy who will help them manage the team.
Warner will be back playing cricket during the India ODIs, as Ricky Ponting is the team’s head coach. Warner was recently in India for the Test series, but he came back home after being ruled out of the entire series halfway through the second Test in Delhi. Warner will be back in action during the three-match ODI series.
