Delhi Capitals (DC) have dealt a huge blow ahead of their crucial IPL 2024 encounter against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) on May 12. The game could potentially write the destiny of either team as a playoff spot is up for grabs. Skipper Rishabh Pant has been suspended from the game against RCB due to a slow over-rate during the tussle against Rajasthan Royals on May 7. Pant has been fined a sum of 10 lakh rupees and other team members have also witnessed a cut in their match fee.

Here are 3 players who can pitch in as captain in the absence of Pant:

1. David Warner

Even though David Warner has been silent with the bat, his leadership acumen can come handy for DC when needed the most. He has prior experience of leading the IPL team and won the championship title for Sunrisers Hyderabad as captain. Both RCB and DC have key players of Australian origin and Warner could leverage the gameplay on the back of playing experience with some of them.
