Delhi Capitals have found a good rhythm in IPL 2021. Like the last two seasons, this year too DC has qualified for the playoffs. Captain Shreyas Iyer looks quite promising and is leading the team beautifully.
The Delhi team has included former Australian captain Steve Smith and Indian speedster Umesh Yadav to the squad, and they have proved to be worthy additions. Experts at Betway say that the team has a high potential of becoming IPL 2021 champions. Wonder why?
Well, here are the reasons:
Strong opening batters
Delhi Capital’s openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw are among the best opening batsmen pairs, but they have failed to produce any consistent results. However, both of them had a good reliable IPL history, and the team will hugely depend on them. It is expected that they will give good runs to the team in the coming matches. Experts say that IPL teams with a strong core of Indian players, like Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals, have played consistently well in the history of this tournament. So if Delhi Capitals delivers well enough, they can grab the title of this season’s IPL.
Strong Indian performers
The DC team is equipped with very strong Indian players that include Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Pant, Ashwin, Ishant, and many others. They will definitely offer some good innings to the team and help them to win the upcoming matches. Other teams with a strong Indian core are Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings and they have a consistent record of performing well in the IPL.
South African pace combination
Kagiso Rabada is undoubtedly the best performing bowler for DC since the last three seasons. He was also the winner of the purple cap in IPL 2020, as he took 30 wickets in the tournament. Along with Rabada, Anrich Nortje also played brilliantly in the last season and ended up being the fourth-highest wicket-taker in the IPL season last year. This year too, Delhi Capitals has high expectations from both of them.
Excellent spin attack
With Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra, and Axar Patel, DC’s spin attack is quite strong, as has been proven time and again. Both Ashwin and Axar are superiorly comfortable bowling with a new ball, which is an added bonus. They have performed quite well in the last few seasons with impressive economies to their credit. So it is expected that they would show some great skills this year too.
Awesome performance by Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant was unable to deliver his best performance last year i.e. in IPL 2020 and was even dropped from the Indian-limited overseas squad. But this year he has almost launched a remarkable comeback. Recently, his wicket-keeping skills have improved a lot, which have helped him to get his place back. If he performs well this year, it is going to be a crucial factor in Delhi Capitals’ trophy-winning spree. He is a promising young talent, and all eyes are on him.
