Who will replace Shreyas Iyer for Delhi Capitals
The appointment of a captain to replace the injured Shreyas Iyer is proving to be a controversial problem for the Delhi Capitals. Iyer will have shoulder surgery and will be out for the full IPL season.
Rishabh Pant has been groomed over the last three years to lead the team in the future, according to ipl prediction. About the fact that Pant remains the favourite for the role, it has now been revealed that the management is reconsidering their decision to hire the wicketkeeper-batsman.
Pant was the appointed vice-captain last season, but with some experienced foreign stars in the lineup this season, the franchise is spoilt for options. On Friday, the management team, which includes co-owners GMR and JSW, will have a video conference with head coach Ricky Ponting to address the Pant situation and make a decision.
“There is also no agreement about who should be captain. There’s a group of management who thinks Pant should take command, and another that needs an experienced captain “according to a source
Steve Smith joins a long list of heavyweights who could do the job, including Ravichandran Ashwin, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shikhar Dhawan.
“Pant is the first name that comes to mind for everyone. Right now, he’s the hottest thing on the market. However, a few members of the management team found out that his lack of experience as a team captain could work against him. Furthermore, the additional responsibilities are thought to be a hindrance to his performance “according to a source
Some members want Ashwin or Rahane to be the captain. Due to his poor T20 cricket form, Rahane only featured in a few games last season. With Iyer out, he may be the batsman who helps to keep the batting order stable. At this time, Ashwin is still a contender.
There’s also the chance that Prithvi Shaw, who has won the U-19 World Cup and the Vijay Hazare Trophy as captain, may be a candidate. His international form, on the other hand, isn’t going to help him.
