Delhi Capitals Performance in IPL 2023

Delhi Capitals started IPL 2023 by losing a match against Lucknow Super Giants. Rishabh Pant was not available due to his injury. Therefore, David Warner was the standby captain. Delhi Capitals finished its group matches with a loss of 77 runs against defending champions Chennai Super Kings. The team could only win five games out of 14 in the group stage, finishing at the 2nd last number in the points table. David Warner was the highest run scorer with 516 runs. Mitchell Marsh topped the wickets column for Delhi Capitals in the last edition of the IPL. He took 12 wickets for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023.

Delhi Capitals Player's Performance Analysis

David Warner will be crucial for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024. He was the highest run scorer for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023. The team suffered a lot due to the bad form of Prithvi Shaw last year. He must bring his A-game this year. Young Englishman Harry Brook has entered the squad of Delhi Capitals for IPL 2024. In IPL 2023, Harry Brook's performance was below average. He scored 190 runs in IPL 2023. Harry Brook has played many top-notch innings for England in the past. Therefore, he will be very crucial for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024.

Mitchell Marsh could not do well in the batting last year. But he is in brilliant batting form right now, which is good for Delhi. Delhi suffered in the middle overs last year, so they brought former West Indian Captain Shai Hope into the game. He will give the team a sense of stability, as he has consistently done for his national team in the last few years. Axar Patel plays outstanding cricket both with the bat and bowl. Delhi will be expecting a similar performance from him again this year. Tristan Stubbs can be the finisher for the team that was missing last year. The local players Abhishek Porel, Yash Dhull, Lalit Yadav, and Ricky Bhui will eye an opportunity to show the world their capabilities.

South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje missed IPL 2023 due to injury. But in IPL 2024, He will be fully available for Delhi Capitals. Nortje is one of the fastest bowlers in the world right now. Leg Spinner Kuldeep Yadav will be vital for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024. He took 15 wickets in the Cricket World Cup 2023. Axar Patel will partner with him to make a good combination for the Delhi team. Delhi retained Khaleel Ahmed, who could not play all matches last year due to injury but is a good bowler. Lungi Ngidi, Jhye Richardson, and Mukesh Kumar will surely bring more control to the bowling lineup.

Key Players of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023

Delhi Capitals will be hugely dependent on David Warner, but also Mitchell Marsh who will play a key role for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024. Harry Brook and Prithvi Shaw will be the team's trump cards, as no one expected a top performance after a disastrous IPL 2023. Shai Hope can become a major factor in the middle order this year. Experienced left-arm spin bowler Axar Patel will be important for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024. Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, and Lungi Ngidi will be tough to face with their ability to adapt to all conditions.

Expectations on Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024

From 2010 to 2019, the Delhi Capitals played just two playoffs in the IPL. But after 2019, Delhi Capitals improved its squad for the IPL. In 2020, Delhi Capitals played its first-ever IPL final, which it lost. Delhi Capitals have a decent squad for IPL 2024, which can lead them to the playoffs of IPL 2024.


Delhi Capitals always made mistakes while playing IPL. In IPL 2023, Delhi Capitals missed its two crucial players, Rishabh Pant and Anrich Nortje. Missing these two players significantly damaged the performance of the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023. But they will return with a powerful squad in 2023. Delhi Capitals has a high chance of securing its place in the top 4 of IPL 2024. Catch all the games of Delhi Capitals on
