On 4 April 2023, Delhi took on Gujarat in the ongoing Indian T20 League at their home ground. However, this year, they are missing the services of their skipper Rishabh Pant as he is still nursing his injuries from the fatal road accident. Hence, David Warner has been leading the franchise this time around.

In the previous match, Delhi were seen putting up Rishabh Pant’s jersey in the dugout to give a tribute. Now, in the second game, Rishabh Pant was seen visiting the stadium with crunches and also seen sitting at the stadium. Before their season opener, head coach Ricky Ponting said that he would love to see Rishabh Pant in all home matches for the Delhi franchise. 

He said: "I have spoken to Rishabh a bit. We are hoping to get him involved this season. I'd love to have him at all our home games. Having him in our dugout or our changing room will be very special. However, David Warner will do a great job. He has been a successful franchise cricket captain in the past. He's excited to lead the team as well".

“But as I've said, in an ideal world for me, and I said this couple of weeks ago, he's going to be sitting next to me in the dugout for every home game this season. Now, if that can work great, but if it can't, as I said, we'll find other ways to make sure he is a part of what we are doing," Ponting further added. Rishabh Pant has been a part of the franchise since 2016.
