Not only Rishabh Pant, many big problems in front of Delhi, will the dream of becoming champion be broken?

New Delhi: The absence of Rishabh Pant has dealt a blow to Delhi Capitals’ prospects in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). The Ricky Ponting-coached Delhi team will begin their campaign against Lucknow Supergiants on April 1. In place of Pant, the team has appointed experienced David Warner as the captain. In 2016, he has won the title to Hyderabad under his captaincy. Delhi is still waiting for its first IPL trophy.

Delhi Capitals team: David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Ripple Patel, Rovman Powell, Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Akshar Patel, Anrich Norkia, Chetan Sakaria, Kamlesh Nagerkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, Aman Khan , Kuldeep Yadav, Praveen Dubey, Vicky Ostwal, Ishant Sharma, Phil Salt, Mukesh Kumar, Manish Pandey, Riley Russo.

Delhi Capitals Strength

The top order of Delhi Capitals is very strong. They have David Warner and Prithvi Shaw in the opening batting. Prithvi, who played his last match for the Indian team about 2 years ago, has a big chance to prove himself. After this comes the number of Mitchell Marsh. With his aggressive batting in the Powerplay, he can turn the tide of the match at any time. Along with this, he has a name like Enrique Norkia as a foreign fast bowler. He can bowl at a speed of 150 kmph. Apart from this, Angiti and Mustafizur Rahman are also with them. Apart from this, Akshar Patel is doing wonders with both bat and ball. Kuldeep Yadav is also in good touch.

Delhi Capitals Weakness

Delhi The lack of firepower in the Indian fast bowlers present in his team is also a matter of concern for him. The truth is that the Delhi team will depend more on its foreign players. The ‘Impact Player’ rule may prove to be counterproductive for Delhi as there is no one among their experienced players who can prove to be a trump card. Delhi does not have any big names in the form of Indian fast bowlers. Khaleel Ahmed has not played any match since October. He is returning from surgery. Even in the middle order, his batting looked weak. Manish Pandey has not been able to score runs for a long time.

Rishabh Pant is irreplaceable and head coach Ponting has already accepted this fact. In the absence of Pant, the team does not have another Indian wicketkeeper. This was not taken into account at the time of auction. Delhi have a useful T20 cricketer in Phil Salt but he lacks experience of the conditions. But keeping the foreign wicket-keeper would mean that Delhi would have to settle with one less foreign fast bowler.

who will have the opportunity

Prithvi Shaw and Sarfaraz Khan, the two players of Delhi Capitals, have the biggest opportunity. Sarfaraz is continuously scoring runs in domestic cricket. A good IPL season will get him a direct entry into Team India. Something similar is with Prithvi Shaw as well. If these two players walk, then Delhi can not only win the IPL title for the first time, but can also come in the Indian team.
