About Delhi Capitals Team (DC)

Delhi Capitals has been part of the IPL since the first season in 2008 but it took them a long time of 13 seasons to reach their first ever IPL final. They lost the final of the IPL 2020 to Mumbai Indians and ended as the runner-up team which is their peak result ever in the league.

Delhi Capitals was earlier known as Delhi Daredevils and they did a revamp before the 2019 season. The revamp worked for them as the performance got better and Delhi team has been quite competitive since the 2020 season.

DC Team Information

Delhi Capitals full-time skipper Rishabh Pant met with a car accident on 30th December. He was severely injured and It is going to take him a few more months to recover and make a comeback to the game.

In his absence, DC has appointed Aussie batsman David Warner to serve as the interim captain for this season. David Warner has earlier captained Sunrisers Hyderabad and also handed SRH their first ever IPL title in 2016.

Once again the Aussie legendary player Ricky Ponting will serve as the head coach of the DC team and Pravin Amre, James Hopes and Biju George would be assistant coaches.

DC Squad changes

In the last auction, DC’s most expensive successful bid went for Indian bowler Mukesh Kumar and they also roped in overseas batters Phil Salt and Rilee Rossouw. Manish Pandey and Ishant Sharma will also be part of the DC squad in the upcoming season.

Phil Salt will fill in for Rishabh Pant as the wicket-keeper batsman while Rilee Rossouw can strengthen the number three spot.

Delhi Capitals Retained Players IPL 2023

Rishabh Pant led Delhi Capitals finished last season at 5th position and missed a mark to go to the playoffs. The team has traded all-rounder Shardul Thakur with KKR and released Tim Seifert as well.

DC is a strong unit and with Warner and Shaw at the top order, they have an ideal batting unit for this format.

Expert Prediction for DC

Delhi Capitals are facing a major blow with Rishabh Pant’s absence as he provides a right balance in the middle-order and now Philips Salt and Manish Pandey have to take care of that spot.

Delhi Capitals has a strong bowling unit with pacers like Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Musrafizur Rahman and spinners like Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel. But their batting is a little worrisome as they don’t have a reliable middle-order. If the top order fails then things can become difficult for this team.

We are predicting the Delhi Capitals to finish in the middle of the points table but not qualify for the playoffs.

Can DC Win IPL 2023?

We are expecting Delhi Capitals to finish the league stage at the middle berth of the points table. We are not expecting DC to lift the trophy in the IPL 2023.
