Delhi Capitals performance
Last year their performance was quite good than the other years. Last year they reached in to the final but somehow can’t win the IPL trophy first time. Mumbai Indians beat them and become champion for the fifth time in IPL history. If Delhi Capitals win the match they will become the first time champion, but sadly it was not happened.
Last year Shreyas Iyer’s performance was too good as a batsman and as a captain also they win 8 matches out of 14 on the last season. But this time they will want to perform better than the last year and will want to win their first IPL trophy this time. So be ready to watch their matches.
This year they bought the Australian great btasman Steve Smith only on INR 2.2 crores, and they bought the Indian fast bowler who can bowl at a speed of 145+ is Umesh Yadav in only INR 1 crores. They bought England pacer Tom Curran in INR 5.5 crores and in 2.2 crores they purchased Sam billings.
They also bought some low price players like Ripal Patel, Manimaran Siddarth, Vishnu, and Lukman Meriwala for just 20 lakhs each. This time with coaches like Ricky Ponting they will want to win the title this time, so this year their matches will so good to see.
