Delhi Capitals: Complete list of DC team players for IPL 2021
Know Delhi Capitals’ complete list of players for the 14th season of IPL 2021
Nation’s heart and soul, Delhi, ever since the change in their name from Delhi Daredevils to “Delhi Capitals” in 2018, fortunes of this franchise definitely has changed a lot. Last two seasons specifically had been really good for the franchise. In 2019, they finished 3rd and in the previous edition, they were the finalist. They have literally accustomed some good names in their team and with Ricky Pointing being a major workforce behind their motives, he has genuinely created a systematic, strong team. The team not only looks strong on paper, but also performs aptly by matching expectations.
Auction 2021 Performance:-
Team, at first sight, looks pretty balanced, from top to bottom with variety of talents, a mixture of experience with subtle young blood. Still there were some tweaks, which were addressed by the team management in this auction.
Talking particularly, to add experience on the top, a reliable face from Steve Smith will now be available for selection at the Capitals, who was bought for 2.2Cr. England All-rounder, Tom Curran too was purchased by Capitals for 5.25Cr, which gives them apt availability depth in the foreign all-rounder department. Also, Indian Ace pacer, Umesh Yadav was bought into the team for 1Cr and with few additions of newbies.
Question for the team to answer:-
The choking out of the whole team in the last years final against the mighty MUMBAI, asserted a lot of questions about the team selection and performance. A season that kicked off on an entertaining note for the team, didn’t had a great end with Capitals constantly burning out, loosing crucial matches.
The big question for the team is about skipper, Shreyas Iyer’s unavailability, due to an unfortunate injury suffered, in the 2nd ODI against England. It is not quite clear, whether Iyer would miss the whole season, or a specific amount, but this unfortunate turn of events, might have made Pointing scratch his head over the appointment of new captain and replacement of Iyer in batting.
It was also seen in the last season, that the morale of the team is an issue, which genuinely acts as a catalyst in teams form. This is a department which they need to make sure doesn’t affects team on regular basis.
Expectations from the fans and players to watch out for:-
The roaring, respected across, team definitely is a threat to every other team and though they may look wounded at the moment, they could indeed turnout to be more vicious than ever. Likes of Pant, Rabada, Rahane, Dhawan, Shaw, Woakes, Patel, Stoinis, Billings, Ashwin etc are ready to “ROAR MACHA” in this edition of VIVO IPL.
