Following a surprising and substantial defeat to Puducherry in their Ranji Trophy 2023-24 match at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi has made the decision to replace Yash Dhull as their captain. Himmat Singh will now take charge of the team for their upcoming away game against Jammu and Kashmir scheduled for January 12.

"Yash is a talented player but is out of form. We wanted him to do well as a batter, that is why we have relieved him of captaincy duties. Himmat is our senior player and has done very well for us. He will captain the side," DDCA joint secretary Rajan Manchanda told PTI
