IPL 2020: Delhi Capitals team preview, strength and weaknesses

Delhi Capitals are one of the three IPL franchises who have not laid their hands on the coveted IPL trophy yet. The Delhi-based franchise would like to end their IPL title drought by winning the upcoming season of the cash-rich league. Delhi Capitals arguably have one of the strongest squads on paper and their strength lies in their batsmen and spinners.

Delhi Capitals who will be captained by Shreyas Iyer has the best Indian contingent among all eight IPL teams. With the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Akshar Patel, Ajinkya Rahane, R Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Amit Mishra, the DC unit has got all the bases covered. They also have overseas T20 stars in the form of Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Roy, Marcus Stoinis, Kagiso Rabada and Daniel Sams, who are among the best players in the shortest format of the game.

With wickets in the UAE being spin-friendly, the Delhi Capitals' spinners will play a huge role in their quest to win the maiden IPL title. The Ricky Ponting-coached team has some of the best T20 spinners in the team. R Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Sandeep Lamichhane and Axar Patel form Delhi's spin attack. Their performances will be crucial in determining how far the Delhi Capitals go in the tournament. What stands out for Shreyas Iyer's men is the fact that their team has a perfect blend of youth and experience which will be vital as the tournament progresses.

The only weakness that the Delhi team has is in the pace and all-rounders department. Besides Kagiso Rabada, the DC do not really have a match-winning pacer within their ranks. Axar Patel is the sole all-rounder in the team. With Marcus Stoinis not bowling as much, Shreyas Iyer will heavily rely on Axar Patel, who will have a huge responsibility on his shoulders.
