New Delhi: David Warner is the captain whose name is the IPL trophy. In 2016, under his captaincy, Warner had won the IPL title to Sunrisers Hyderabad. But this team had dropped Warner. Now David Warner is going to face this team in IPL-2023 on Monday, that too as captain. But there is a special coincidence attached to it.
Warner captained Sunrisers Hyderabad from 2013 to 2021, but then this team removed Warner from the captaincy in the middle of the season and also dropped him from the team. Now Warner is going to field as captain with Delhi Capitals, that too against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

return to hyderabad
The teams of Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face each other in IPL-2023 on Monday. Warner will return to Hyderabad in this match. Not in Hyderabad team but in Hyderabad ground. The match of Delhi and Sunrisers is to be played at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium. On this ground, Warner played his last match in IPL as captain of Sunrisers and now after four years he is going to return as captain on this ground.
Warner played the match in this stadium on 29 April 2019 as the captain of Sunrisers. He played this match against Punjab Kings and won. But after 2019, once again Warner will be seen captaining this field but this time he will be the captain of the other team. Warner knows this ground very well, so Delhi can benefit.

This happened because of Corona
Actually, since 2019, IPL is being played in Home and Away format for the first time in India this season. In 2020, IPL took place in UAE due to Corona. In 2021, the BCCI organized it in India, but then Kovid made a dent in the biobubble of IPL and this league had to be shifted to UAE. For this reason, Warner did not play on this ground in 2020 and 2021 as the captain of Sunrisers.
bad condition of delhi
Although the captain of Delhi is Rishabh Pant but this season he is injured and that is why he is not playing IPL. For this reason, Warner has got a chance to captain this season. Although Delhi has not done well this season under his captaincy. He had to face five consecutive defeats. He got the victory in the sixth match. Delhi would like to maintain its winning streak in the seventh match.
