David Warner set to lead Delhi Capitals while Axar Patel to be appointed as Vice-Captain: Report

During the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) season, veteran Australian opener David Warner is likely to captain the Delhi Capitals (DC) in place of regular skipper Rishabh Pant. Axar Patel, an all-arounder, will serve as his deputy.

Since Pant will be sidelined from cricket for a while due to injuries sustained in a car accident in December, DC will need a new captain for the upcoming IPL season.

In response to the development, a Delhi Capitals owner was quoted by Cricbuzz as saying: “David will be our captain and Axar Patel will be his deputy.”

On April 1, Delhi will face the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in Lucknow to begin their IPL 2023 season.
