The Shreyas Iyer-led team performed exceptionally well in the eyes of head coach Ricky Ponting. The former Australia captain has started his batting this year with his countryman Steve Smith to increase the chance of the Delhi Capitals in the upcoming season.
It should not be forgotten, no matches are playing at home this year, due to a change of rules due to COVID-19, which has affected some states more than others, leading the governing body to cut down on travel for all teams, finally giving a fair schedule where none of the teams play at home.
In addition to Smith this year, DC also bought Indian fast bowler Umesh Yadav to strengthen his pace attack.
DC already boast a strong fast bowling unit, which will go into their line-up with the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Enrique Norje.
