As Capitals continue their mission as table-clinchers in the second 50% of the IPL against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday, Iyer winds up pushed to the rearward sitting arrangement.
Rishabh's stocks have risen so drastically throughout the last year that the Capitals the board felt it was better for him to take over all day captaincy obligations from Iyer.
"Rishabh's degree of development in the last two seasons has gone through the rooftop. It will take an excellent player to knock him off that Indian group," DC lead trainer Ricky Ponting, with Rishabh sitting close to him, declared to the media on Tuesday.

There's an air about Rishabh Pant. He draws the focus on him. As Indian cricket is set to go through a significant redesign with Virat Kohli giving up T20I captaincy and during the time spent unburdening liabilities, Rishabh might be reserved for more capable jobs.
The following three weeks in the IPL, in the approach the T20 World Cup, will decide his vocation direction. For a lot of his profession, he has been exposed to analysis that rotated around his development and game mindfulness.
Things have happened quick for him. His vocation has ebbed and streamed like the chart of an electrocardiogram. Every little thing about him mirrors the manner in which he bats.
"We are superior to last time this year. We have been zeroing in on the interaction for two-three years. We don't need to do an excessive number of things uniquely in contrast to a year ago. We can do exactly the same things and give 10-15 percent extra," Pant said.
"I have gained from Ricky that everybody ought to be dealt with similarly in the group — players and furthermore the care staff. Really at that time extraordinary things occur and as a captain, that is the main thing you need."
This second period of the IPL will check Pant's advancement as a pioneer and skipper.
