March 22, 2023

One of team which made good start in IPL, but have failed to win a single tournament. It would be not wrong if we say DC is weakest side looking this season.

Delhi Capitals reached semi-finals in 2008 and 2009 and 2012. After that few bad years went for Delhi and they failed as a team. But since Shreyas Iyer got Captaincy in 2018, DC have reached semis in 2019, 2021 and were runner-ups in IPL 2020.

Many brilliant players have played for Delhi side like AB De Villiers, David Warner, Kevin Pietersen, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Glenn Maxwell etc.

In Auction they bought many players including Phil Salt, Rillee Rossouw and Manish Pandey. One of biggest problem this season for DC is they will be without regular skipper and wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant, David Warner will be leading side this season.

Prithvi Shaw

Good young talented Batsman, plays attacking Cricketing shots in powerplay and can provide Delhi a flier. This year he needs to be bit more consistent as side is looking much weaker this time.
