Delhi Capitals will be looking to build on the success of their campaign in last year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) season. The Delhi-based outfit was one of the most consistent teams in IPL 2020 and finished the competition as runners-up. They made it to the final for the first time in the history of IPL before losing to Mumbai Indians.
Only Mumbai had managed to register more wins than them in the league stage. While the eventual champions had won 9 league games, Delhi had won 8 of their 14 games. The Shreyas Iyer-led side will be a strong contender for the title once again in IPL 2021. With the likes of Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Kagiso Rabada and other big stars in their ranks, Delhi Capitals will be a force to reckon with in the fourteenth edition of the competition.
