They didn’t have the best of seasons last year. The finished at the bottom of the league with five wins and nine losses. Both players and fans will surely try to forget as much as that season as possible.
But don’t let the last season fool you, the team as both skill and potential. One of the stars of the team and fan favorite is Indian international Shikhar Dhawan. If he regains his former form, which got him recalled to the national team the Delhi Capitals might improve significantly. But the rest of the squad is also well balanced. It features the likes of record holder Amit Mishra, Chris Morris, Sheryas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw.
The team might not be the first name when you predict the champion but if a few things go their way, their fans could be celebrating by the end of the season.
