Meanwhile, last year’s IPL runners-up Delhi Capitalshave come a long way since their inception. They are yet to win the IPL title, but have been an improved outfit under young captain Shreyas Iyer and coach Ricky Ponting. Unfortunately, for the Delhi franchise, Iyer will not be leading them this year and will miss the season due to a shoulder injury. Rishabh Pant, who joined the franchise in 2016, has been named captain of the side. Under head coach Ricky Ponting, who joined the franchise in 2018, the team have qualified for the playoffs twice and have even played their maiden final. Ponting had earliercoached Mumbai Indians to title victory twice and he will hope to win his and Delhi Capitals maiden title in the upcoming season.
