All the franchises are busy in the preparations for IPL 2023. In the recently held Mini Auction for IPL 2023, the franchisees showered a lot of money on the players. Delhi Capitals have also bought five players in the mini auction. As the most expensive player of the auction, DC bought Mukesh Kumar for Rs 5 crore 50 lakh. But before IPL 2023, Delhi Capitals have suffered a big setback. Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant has become a victim of a horrific road accident.
Rishabh Pant was the victim of a horrific road accident when he was going to his home from Delhi in his car. In the early hours of Friday, his car went uncontrolled and collided with the railing. Rishabh Pant has suffered serious injuries in the accident. Pant’s facial plastic surgery was done on Saturday. Now scanning of his knee and ankle will be done. Doctors told that Rishabh Pant is out of danger. An AIIMS doctor claims that it may take three to four months for Rishabh Pant to recover.
If Rishabh Pant takes three to four months to recover completely, then the big question is whether he will be able to return to the field. If Rishabh Pant is not able to return to the field in three to four months, then playing in IPL 2023 (IPL 2023) seems very difficult for Pant. BCCI has not yet released the schedule for IPL 2023. But it is estimated that BCCI can conduct IPL 2023 between March and June. If the IPL is organized between March and June, then Pant will not be able to participate.

Manish Pandey can bat at number four in the absence of Rishabh Pant in IPL 2023. Manish Pandey has experience of batting at number four.

In such a situation, if David Warner is given the command of Delhi Capitsls, then Manish Pandey can bat at number four. If Rishabh Pant returns to the field after being fit by IPL 2023, then Manish Pandey can bat at number 6.
