Delhi Capitals (DC), the team with the lowest winning percentage in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL), could be called underachievers. They have been part of IPL right since the inception of the tournament in 2008 but are yet to play the final.
In fact, DC could not qualify for the playoffs even once from 2013 to 2018. However, under the leadership of Shreyas Iyer, they ended the drought and finally reached the playoffs in 2019.
The Capitals will hope to emulate last year’s performance under a young captain once again.
