Delhi Capitals Team 2021 IPL Players List
DC squad 2021 players are placed here. The Delhi Capitals will go into the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League having finally played to their potential in the previous season. Under the stewardship of Shreyas Iyer, the Capitals made it to the playoffs and then finished third after winning the Eliminator. IPL 2021 players list full squad of Delhi Capitals is placed below.
Given the drastic improvement seen in the performance of the Capitals team last season, the management has done well to not fiddle around with their squad too much. Iyer can be expected to continue leading the team, while most of the youngsters are expected to be retained as the team builds towards the next few years. Delhi Capitals traded hard-hitting Windies all-rounder Sherfane Rutherford for Mumbai Indians Mayank Markande before the auction.
Delhi’s top three batsmen last season were captain Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant, with Dhawan scoring 500+ runs among the three, while the remaining two getting more than 400 at a very high strike-rate.
While when it comes to their bowling, had it not been for a Kagiso Rabada injury, he would have got more than 25 wickets that he finally did in the season, at a mere 14.72 in 12 games.
Delhi made a few good buys during the IPL auction and the celebration of Shimron Hetmyer at the end of it will remain in the memory of their fans for a long time. That said, Hetmyer will be joined by another solid hitter of the cricket ball in the form of Jason Roy, who played an excellent hand in England winning the 2019 World Cup. While Roy cost them just 1.5 crores, Hetmyer was brought in for INR 7.75 crore.
The Capitals also bolstered their Indian pace bowling department with the selection of Mohit Sharma and Tushar Deshpande, both for a mere INR 50 and 20 lakhs respectively.
Among the others who were signed up by the Delhi side at the auction, Alex Carrey made it to the squad for another whopping INR 2.4 crore, while Chris Woakes, an all-rounder, was bought at his base price of INR 1.5 crore. Marcus Stoinis, the Aussie all-rounder who had played for RCB in the past, had a bidding war going for him, and cost DC INR 4.8 crore while Lalit Yadav was selected for INR 20 lakh.
Marcus Stoinis and Alex Carey won’t be available at the beginning of the tournament as they will be representing their national side in a limited-overs series against New Zealand that will end on March 29th. Chris Woakes withdraws from the tournament to stay fresh for the England tests. He may also be unavailable for playoffs– if Delhi qualify. DD team 2021 players list is placed below.
