Shreyas Iyer will lead Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020.
DC will look to win their first IPL title this year.
Delhi Capitals (DC), earlier known as Delhi Daredevils, are the only side who have never made it to the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, DC had a good season last year as they made it to the playoffs.
The Capitals will kickstart their IPL 13 journey against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on September 20 in Dubai. DC will play seven matches in Dubai, four in Abu Dhabi, and three in Sharjah.
When it comes to the team, the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are a crucial part of DC. They have also traded Ajinkya Rahane from Kings XI Punjab into their squad to strengthen their batting unit.
The spin duo of Amit Mishra and Axar Patel will be lethal especially after the inclusion of Ravichandran Ashwin. Pace department will be handled by Ishant Sharma, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje.
