Let’s take a look at who can replace Rishabh Pant in the Delhi Capitals:

Sarfaraz Khan:

In the just-completed IPL 2023 Auction, Delhi Capitals purchased Mukesh Kumar, Rilee Rossouw, Phil Salt. Ishant Sharma, and Manish Pandey. Sarfaraz Khan plays wicketkeeping for the Delhi Capitals, although very seldom. He is also not a lock to start in the team’s starting 11.

However, Sarfaraz Khan is the most likely candidate to replace Rishabh Pant in the Delhi Capitals starting lineup because doing so will enable them to acquire a third batsman or bowler for the IPL 2023. Sarfaraz Khan played for Delhi Capitals for only one IPL season in 2022. Scoring 91 runs in six games and five innings, average 30.33.

Phil Salt:

Another option for keeping in the Delhi Capitals lineup is Phil Salt, however even for his domestic and Hundred sides. Phil Salt isn’t a regular wicketkeeper. Therefore inserting Phil Salt in the middle of the order might interfere with DC’s international lineup. In the playing 11 for the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023, Phil Salt can take Rishabh Pant’s place.

The Delhi franchise paid the base fee of INR 2 crore for the 26-year-old goalkeeper Phil Salt. He has participated in 11 One Day Internationals and 13 Twenty20 Internationals for England, although neither a Test match nor an IPL match have been played by him. His strike rate in T20I is 161.18, while it is 150.39 in T20s. He had an ODI ton as well.

Yash Dhull:

If Phil Salt keeps wickets, Yash Dhull can take Rishabh Pant’s place in the Delhi Capitals starting 11. Earlier this year, Yash Dhull led the India U-19 squad to a World Cup victory. Since Rishabh Pant would only be absent for one season of the IPL in 2023. Yash Dhull might be given the job of managing the Delhi Capitals. But this is not a very likely scenario given that he sat on the bench for the entire 2022 season.

India’s U-19 World Cup-winning captain Yash Dhull bagged his first IPL contract with the Delhi Capitals who bought him for INR 50 lakh in the IPL 2022 mega auction. Yash Dhull made a mark in the 2022 U-19 World Cup, showing his tremendous potential with the bat. He scored a match-winning hundred in the semifinal of the tournament and also led the way from the front.
