Delhi Capitals

Sign in to follow this  


If the likes of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) are deemed as the most successful teams in the tournament, then Delhi Capitals would arguably be termed as the most inconsistent team in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the last 11 years of the IPL, the fact that Delhi is the only team to never reach the final, shows how poor they've been in the competition.

Their best result in the IPL came 2009 and 2012 where they managed to finish third in the points table. And, the next couple of years saw them going through the worst phase in the league as they finished last in team standings consecutively. The last season proved to be no different for Delhi who, once again, finished last with just five wins to their name.

Owing to their history of forgettable performances, Delhi underwent a major overhaul that also saw them shedding 'Daredevils' to 'Capitals' in their franchise name. In a bid to change their fortunes, Delhi splashed out a whopping Rs 17.80 crore at the 2019 IPL Auctions to restructure their squad for the new season.

Having retained the key players from last season, Delhi secured the services of Colin Ingram (Rs 6.4 cr), Axar Patel (Rs 5 cr), Hanuma Vihari (Rs 2 cr), Sherfane Rutherford (Rs 2 cr), Ishant Sharma (Rs 1.1 cr), Keemo Paul (Rs 50 lakh), Jalaj Saxena (Rs 20 lakh), Ankush Bains (Rs 20 lakh), Nathu Singh (Rs 20 lakh) and Bandaru Ayyappa (Rs 20 lakh).

The top-order will surely be bolstered with the arrival of Shikhar Dhawan in the Delhi camp. But, the inexperience of Prithvi Shaw and Colin Ingram's lack of exposure in the IPL make their top-order a little unconvincing. But, despite a shaky top-order, a strong and potent middle-order could do the trick for Delhi this season.

The likes of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Hanuma Vihari and Chris Morris are more than capable of stabilising the innings for their side in the middle. Delhi also have enough fire-power in the pace attack with Trent Boult, Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma forging a deadly trio. But, the chances of playing Boult and Rabada together are unlikely, which could bring Avesh Khan and Harshal Patel into play.

The spin-bowling department is adequately taken care of with young Sandeep Lamichhane, experienced Amit Mishra and dynamic Axar Patel in the fold. Overall, Delhi certainly have variety in their bowling attack but the batting line-up doesn't seem to have enough confidence. And, in case of an injury, Delhi might end up struggling as their bench strength is yet to be tested.

Squad: Shreyas Iyer (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant (wk), Prithvi Shaw, Colin Munro, Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris, Bandaru Ayyappa, Sandeep Lamichhane, Ishant Sharma, Colin Ingram, Trent Boult, Manjot Kalra, Nathu Singh, Sherfane Rutherford, Rahul Tewatia, Ankush Bains, Avesh Khan, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Hanuma Vihari, Keemo Paul, Jalaj Saxena.
