Delhi Capitals had a sensational season last year as they finished runners-up under the leadership of their young and dynamic skipper Shreyas Iyer. The Delhi franchise, however, were dealt with a major blow ahead of IPL 2021 as their captain was ruled out of the tournament due to a shoulder injury. In Iyer’s absence, the team management appointed young Rishabh Pant as the captain for this season. Pant has had a phenomenal 2021 so far and the wicketkeeper-batsman would be aiming to add another feather in his cap.
Delhi Capitals will take on the three-time champions Chennai Super Kings in their opening game of the tournament at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 10.
