Formerly known as the Delhi Daredevils, the Delhi Capitals were founded in 2008 and are owned by the GMR Group and the JSW Group.

Representing the city of Delhi, the team’s home ground located in New Delhi is the Arun Jaitley Stadium, and is coached by Ricky Ponting with captain Shryas Iyer.

While they’re the only current team so have never made into the IPL final, things could change up this year with the new Australian fast bowler Ryan Harris coming as the team's bowling coach.

In 2019, The Delhi Capitals made the playoffs for the first time in seven years, and they may progress this time thanks to adding Jason Roy, Chris Woakes, Alex Carey, Shimron Hetmyer, Mohit Sharma, Tushar Deshpande, Marcus Stoinis and Lalit Yadav to their 2020 roster.

They have also just signed 26-year-old South African pacer and right-arm fast bowler Anrich Nortje as replacement for Chris Woakes. He’s racked up a total of 19 wickets from six test matches, 14 wickets from seven ODIs, and two wickets from three T20Is.

Along with being named Cricket South Africa’s Newcomer of the Year for 2020, the Delhi captains may change their luck this year.
