Rishabh Pant has been leading the Delhi side now since last year’s edition and the team has retained Prithvi Shaw and Anrich Nortje in the draft pick and they signed new players like David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Lungi Ngidi, Rovman Powell, Mustafizur Rahman during the IPL mega auction in February.

DC Team Information

The Capitals have been one of the most consistent IPL sides in recent years and have finished 3rd, 2nd and 3rd from 2019 onwards.

They need to learn to perform in the biggest games and win those crucial moments. Under the burgeoning captaincy of Rishabh Pant, we expect to see an improvement in this department.

The runs of Shikhar Dhawan and wickets of Avesh Khan will be hard to replace but they have given themselves every chance by recruiting very well ahead of the 2022 IPL.

A strong squad, with confident leadership and some fresh blood means that Delhi Capitals will once again be challenging during the latter stages of the tournament.

DC Squad changes

Any team will need to reset after losing the 587 runs from Shikhar Dhawan and the 24 wickets from Avesh Khan. However, Delhi Capitals’ additions make it look like they will not be adversely affected.

All four of their retained players, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw and Anrich Nortje were integral to the success of the franchise last season.

Overall, Delhi Capitals have refreshed their squad very well and there is a feeling of excitement around the team. The signings of experienced players like David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Shardul Thakur all come to the side with points to prove.

DC team key players

  • Captain - Rishab Pant: Still only 24, Pant has made himself an integral part of India’s team in all three formats. The captaincy was thrust upon him ahead of last season after the injury to Shreyas Iyer and he finished as the tenth highest run scorer in the tournament.

  • David Warner: The 2021 IPL was a real struggle for the Australian combative opener. He began it as the skipper of Sunrisers Hyderabad but ended it stripped of the captaincy and not in the XI. He rebuilt his reputation and finished as the Player of the Tournament in the T20 World Cup. Warner loves to prove people wrong and he will be motivated ahead of the 2022 edition.

  • Prithvi Shaw: With four half-centuries, the opener was second only to Shikhar Dhawan in the runs for Delhi Capitals last season. He finished with 479 runs, his best return in an IPL season so far.

  • Anrich Nortje:The South African pace bowler jumped ahead of the 2020 Purple Cap holder, and fellow countryman, Kagiso Rabada, in the Delhi Capitals pecking order last year. Although he only played eight games, he picked up 12 wickets and was dangerous with his variations.

Expert Prediction for DC

We Predict DC to Finish at Second Position

We expect Delhi Capitals to go further than last time and perform in the play-offs as well as the group stage in 2022. The team is oozing with class and experienced heads who have been in the big occasions before.

Captain Rishabh Pant will continue to lead in an attacking manner which will bring the odd defeat. However, they will also be unstoppable at times and will thrash teams.
