As is evident from the above Delhi Capitals team 2021 players list, the team has released only six of its former players. Head Coach and cricket legend Ricky Ponting clearly has a lot of faith in his current squad and is expecting thier stellar form from last year’s season to continue. 

With a purse of over 12 crores in the auction, they spent 11.25 crore on the new entrants in the DC team 2021. We believe that they were in luck as they got the legend Steve Smith at his base price of 2 crores.

In the overseas category, the new list has Tom Curran, Steve Smith and Sam Billings.

Who will captain the team once the games start?

With stalwart and former Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith picked up, and captain Shreyas Iyer ruled out for the entire season due to an injury, there is a very good chance that Smith himself might captain the team. With players like Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant and Ajinkya Rahane in the team too, there are a plethora of options left for the team there is no shortage of tactical minds and experienced players to lead the team.

English bowling all-rounder Tom Curran was their costliest buy at 5.25 crore, and he will look to further boost the already sophisticated bowling line-up they have with Kagiso Rabada, Chris Woakes, Marcus Stoinis and Anrich Nortje. Umesh Yadav, who was struggling for form at Royal Challengers Bangalore, will hope for a change in fortune at his new team. 


The Delhi Capitals team looks ready to continue the excellent form they had in 2021. They will look to capture their first-ever IPL title with their new and old players collaborating and excelling.
