There are two teams that are dominant in IPL – Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Delhi Capitals is also a talented team that can be equally good as the talent of both these teams.
The team has been doing well for the last three years, but they are still searching for their first IPL title. The 2021 finalists were unsuccessful, but the new players do think that they will break through and win in 2022. And it looks like they’ve done a good job of preparing, by keeping Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw, and Anrich Nortje.

DC Strength: Delhi Capitals have an explosive batting lineup, which includes a strong set of openers. Rishabh Pant, Mitchell Marsh, and Rovman Powell are all top-class players who can contribute well to their team. The key players in Delhi are Shardul Thakur, who they spent a lot on, and Axar Patel. They also have other strong plays with all-around skills. With this line-up, Delhi is arguably one of the best sides.
DC Weakness: Delhi is a good batting side but lacks spinners. Though they let go of senior players like Amit Mishra and Ashwin, so they have less chance of performing well. Moreover, Kuldeep Yadav, the newest addition to the team is talented but unreliable. The Delhi team could suffer from the lack of spin bowling as the season progresses. Delhi does have a really explosive lineup, but they will need to find their own winning XI. They also need to figure out who will come through in crunch moments and take them past the finish line.
