Delhi Capitals (DC) Strengths and Weaknesses

The 17th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to start after 4 days from March 22. Delhi Capitals team captain Rishabh Pant has returned after being injured in a car accident. Along with playing this season, he will also be seen commanding the team.

Delhi became stronger with the return of Pant, the number of explosive batsmen in the team increased. Prithvi Shaw and Pant are scoring runs at a strike rate of more than 145. But lack of all-rounders can become a problem for the team this season.

Rishabh Pant could not play the last season due to injury. He has now returned, his arrival will boost the morale of Delhi. In the last auction, the franchise bought 9 players, which included 4 foreigners and 5 uncapped players.

There are batsmen like David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant, Tristan Stubbs, Kumar Kushagra and Ricky Bhui. Akshar can play the role of finisher but there are less batsmen who can support him in the death overs.

The pace attack consists of Enrique Nortya, Mukesh Kumar and Jhye Richardson. Lungi Ngidi was ruled out of the tournament due to injury. Apart from these, spinner Kuldeep Yadav is in good form.

Top Order Batsman: Prithvi, Warner and Mitchell Marsh will be the top-3 batsmen of Delhi. All three are explosive batsmen and score runs very fast. The strike rate of all three remains around 140.

Pant Will Strengthen the Middle Order: With the arrival of Pant, Delhi's middle order has become stronger. Axar Patel will finish with Kumar Kushagra and Tristan Stubbs. Young batsman Jack-Fraser Magarch can also do wonders in his debut season.

Foreign and Indian bowlers in pace attack: Enrique Nortya and Jhye Richardson are strengthening the pace attack of Delhi. Both are effective in death overs with the new ball. Along with them, Mukesh Kumar, Ishant Sharma and Khalil Ahmed are also providing strength.

Lack of Finisher: After releasing Rovman Powell, Delhi Capitals was lacking a finisher. Harry Brook is not playing the tournament due to personal reasons. In such a situation, the responsibility of finishing along with Axar will be on Stubbs and Fraser-Magark, who have less experience.

Not Many Aall-Rounders: Mitchell Marsh and Akshar are the only experienced all-rounders in Delhi, so the team will have to depend more on specialist players. All-rounders like Lalit Kumar and Sumit Kumar are also in the team, but both cannot be depended on.

Not Much Spin Option: The team has only 2 specialist spinners in the form of Kuldeep and Akshar. If even one gets injured, the team's problems may increase.
