IPL 2019: Delhi Capitals Team – Players, Support Staff, Schedule and Stats

Formerly known as ‘Delhi Daredevils’, the franchise has a new name this season. After Gautam Gambhir stepped down from captaincy in the middle of the last season, right-hander batsman Shreyas Iyer took charge of the side.

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan and pacer Ishant Sharma have joined the franchise. Delhi Capitals also purchased left-arm spinner Axar Patel for INR 5 crore in the auction.


It is definitely a young side, but with great support staff in the form of Ricky Ponting, Mohammad Kaif, and Sourav Ganguly.
