Why Pant should return as DC skipper in IPL 2024 instead of Warner? Chopra explains

Wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant is expected to make his comeback in IPL 2024 as the Delhi Capitals skipper

Former India opener Aakash Chopra firmly believes that Rishabh Pant is a better skipper than David Warner. The Aussie led the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023 in the absence of Pant. The wicketkeeper-batter survived a horrific car crash at the end of 2022. He is expected to make his return in IPL 2024.

Pant gets thumbs up from Chopra as DC skipper

In a video on his YouTube channel, Chopra explains why Warner is a poor captain. He cites the underutilization of talents like Mukesh Kumar and Axar Patel. Chopra asserts that the Aussie’s captaincy was questionable throughout the previous edition of IPL.

He heaps praise on Pant for working hard on his recovery. Chopra calls his return ‘absolutely phenomenal’, adding that it is miraculous to see Pant back on field after the car crash. The ex-India opener feels that Pant may not play as an impact player but might field for 20 overs instead.

The wicketkeeper batter, who is currently playing his first proper warm-up match in Alur since his injury has posted an montage of his preparations with a little over a month left before the start of the IPL.

However, Pant put out a post on social media on Tuesday where he is seen wicketkeeping in full swing. However, the clip does not any way mean cricket fans can expect to see Pant behind the Stumps in IPL 2024.
