In the next season of Indian Premier League, significant changes are expected not only in player compositions but also in team captaincies. Shubman Gill is set to lead the Gujarat Titans for the first time following Hardik Pandya’s move to Mumbai Indians. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) may see the return of Shreyas Iyer as captain, and Rishabh Pant could reassume leadership for the Delhi Capitals after his recovery.

Notably, KKR has called back its former captain Gautam Gambhir as a mentor. Under the leadership of Gambhir, KKR became champion twice in 2012 and 2014. This time, Shreyas Iyer may return to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team as captain as he was not fit last season.

Last season, Nitish Rana took over the captaincy in his place. The performance of KKR team under the leadership of Nitish was mixed as KKR won 6 out of 14 matches in the IPL 2023 season, and had to face defeat in 8 matches. They ranked 7 at the end of the season.

At the same time, the performance of Delhi Capitals team was very poor in IPL 2023. Delhi had won 5 out of 14 matches. It ranked 9th out of 10 teams in the points table. In 2023, David Warner took over the captaincy of Delhi in the absence of Rishabh Pant. Rishabh Pant could not play IPL due to a road accident.
