IPL 2023: Delhi Capitals Strength, Weakness, X-factors, And Full Squad

Delhi capitals are one such team in the history of IPL which has a lot of potential but they are still to lift a trophy in this cash-rich league. After some decent seasons, under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer Delhi Capitals went into the Finale but lost to Mumbai in 2020. This year Delhi is being handled by the star Australian opener David Warner as the team’s regular captain Rishabh Pant is set to miss the IPL 2023 due to injury.

Delhi Capitals Performance In IPL 2023:
In the 2022 IP, Delhi Capital failed to make it into the playoffs. Out of 14 matches, they managed to win 7 and lost the same number of matches. With 14 points they finished in the 5th spot in the points table.

Strength Of Delhi Capitals
Delhi Capitals have a very strong and versatile batting lineup for the upcoming IPL season. The top 5 batters in their lineup are expected to be David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rilee Rossouw, Sarfaraz Khan, and Rovman Powell. This batting order has the potential to score a lot of runs and create a threat for the opponents.David Warner is one of the greatest T20 batters of all time with a proven track record in the IPL. Prithvi Shaw on the other hand is a talented young batter who loves to go behind the bowlers from the first ball itself. Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh can bring his experience to the table and is a quality hitter who can also provide at least 2-3 overs for the team. Rovman Powell also had a good season with the Delhi Capitals in the past and his all-round abilities can make him a valuable asset to the team.Talking about the bowling, DC have Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav who can turn the game around for the team with their spin attack.

Rishabh Pant, the team’s regular captain is not playing this year due to his injury. Pant’s absence will really hamper the team’s playing XI. The team has Mitchell Marsh as an impact all-arounder but it would be interesting to see if he can deliver some overs for the team or not. They have Mustafizur Rahman in their team but it would be difficult for them to make a place for him in the playing XI due to the ‘4 overseas player’ rule.

X-factor Of Delhi Capitals In IPL 2023:
Prithvi Shaw has a great chance to perform for the team and make his way for the team. This season might also be a good opportunity for Rilee Rossouw and Phil Salt. While they may not be a part of the first-choice in the DC’s playing XI, they will definitely be on the radar if some other player goes out of form.
