Delhi Capitals had an excellent outing last season which was also their debut IPL season as well. The team led by youngster Shreyas Iyer finished third after losing to the eventual runners-up Chennai Super Kings in the playoffs. This time, they would look to finish as winners. The IPL 2020 has been postponed from March 29 to April 15 due to the outbreak of COVID-19 that has spread all over the world. 

Meanwhile, the Capitals were recently involved in a social media banter along with Rajasthan Royals and they ended up trolling one of Royals' star players Ben Stokes.

DC trolls Ben Stokes

It had so happened that the Capitals had asked all the Delhi admins to participate in a Question & Answer session on social media and that is when the Rajasthan Royals had made their presence felt.

Taking to the micro-blogging site, the inaugural edition winners asked last year's semi-finalists which RR player would they like to have in their squad to which DC hilariously replied that they would like to have a match-winning all-rounder from their side and then revealed the suspense by taking the name of Ben Stokes.

Delhi Capitals also mentioned how RR would react to this in a hilarious manner.

Coming back to IPL, even the Rajasthan Royals would be hoping to win their second IPL trophy and thereby, end their title drought after 12 long years.
