Potential IPL Records That David Warner Could Break in 2023
David Warner, one of the most explosive batsmen in IPL history, is set to take on a leadership role in the 2023 edition of the tournament. With Rishabh Pant out due to injuries sustained in a car accident, Warner will lead the Delhi Capitals in the meantime. Let’s take a look at five IPL records that Warner could break in 2023:
First player to score 6,000 runs in IPL history
Warner needs only 119 more runs to reach 6,000 runs in the IPL, a feat achieved only by Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan. He could surpass Rohit Sharma (5,879) next year to become the third-highest run-scorer in IPL history.
Most fifties in IPL history by david Warner
With 55 fifties already in his collection, Warner is just four short of becoming the first player in IPL history to score 60 fifties.
Most fifty-plus scores in IPL history
Warner currently holds the record for most fifty-plus scores in IPL history with 59. He could add to that tally in 2023 and extend his lead over the next closest batter who has 50 such hits.
Leading two different teams to IPL titles
Warner could make history by leading two different teams to IPL titles. He captained Sunrisers Hyderabad to a championship in 2016 and led them to the playoffs in 2017 and 2020. With his leadership skills and experience, he could guide the Delhi Capitals to their first IPL title in 2023.
Most wins as captain in IPL history
Warner has been the captain for 35 of his team’s 69 victories in the IPL (excluding Super Over wins). He could surpass MS Dhoni’s record of 110 wins as captain and become the player with the most wins as captain in IPL history.
In conclusion, David Warner has the potential to break several IPL records in 2023. As he leads the Delhi Capitals, all eyes will be on him to see if he can make history once again.
