He missed the initial matches for DC, but will join the squad for the game against Lucknow Super Giants.
"I want to learn how to play the one-handed shots from Rishabh. He's a young guy learning the ropes of leadership and he has been an integral part of the Indian team as well. I am excited and I can't wait to be bat with him in the middle," Warner said in a statement.
Ricky Ponting is the head coach of the team and Warner shared his excitement of working with the former cricketing great.
"Ricky has had a fair bit of success with DC. He was a great leader for Australia and now he has a lot of respect as a coach. I am looking forward to working with him.'' Speaking about the game against Lucknow Super Giants, the opening batter said, ''We just need to put our best foot forward and play a complete game. Fielding is the biggest component of the game and if we can hold our catches and field as well as we can, then we can go a long way in this tournament."
