delhi capitals

Delhi’s 2023 IPL campaign was a season to forget. Finishing ninth, they missed out on many things the previous season. However, Delhi Capitals missed the services of their star wicketkeeper-batsman and also their captain Rishabh Pant. IPL 2024 is expected to mark his return to professional cricket, which is very crucial for Delhi’s success in this campaign.

Last season, key players like Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, and Anrich Nortje failed to perform when the team needed them the most, which was very detrimental to their success. However, if they could showcase their abilities this season, DC would be favorites to secure a playoff spot.

DC released 11 players ahead of the auction, including some important players like Manish Pandey, Chetan Sarkariya, Phil Salt, Rilee Rossow, and Mustafizur Rahman, looking to make a few important purchases in the auction. Here’s a list of those who have been retained by the team:

Squad Strength – 25 (Indian-17, Overseas-8)

DC’s squad looks good on paper. They have invested a lot in talented 19-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Kushagra. Apart from him, DC’s auction picks are quite smart and they haven’t broken the bank for any particular player.

Delhi Capitals Strengths

DC’s main strength lies in their explosive batting order with the likes of Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Harry Brook, and Rishabh Pant. These players could single-handedly win games out of nowhere.

They also have a formidable pace bowling unit with Mukesh Kumar who could deliver toe-crushing yorkers consistently and with South-African power horses Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi.

They also have great all-rounders like Mitchell Marsh, Axar Patel, and Tristain Stubbs who can excel in all three departments, adding depth to both the batting and bowling department.

Key players for DC this season are

  1. David Warner
  2. Rishabh Pant
  3. Mitchell Marsh
  4. Mukesh Kumar
  5. Anrich Nortje

DC can easily qualify for the playoffs if they get their balance right in the first few matches of the league and play consistent cricket from there on. Rishabh Pant’s return is very important for their success this season.
