Over the period of time, the Delhi team hasn’t won to knit together a settled outfit, making wholesale variation to their squad almost every season. Moreover, few of the greatest players, in the IPL, were once part of the Delhi Capitals team before they stepped out and ascended to showcase their potential for other teams.
Without further procrastination, let us all meet the players in Delhi Capitals’ best all-time playing XI.
He is to become one of the openers in this all-time Delhi Capitals XI. Renowned all over as the Nawab of Najafgarh, is the highest run-scorer in the IPL for the Delhi legends.
Virender Sehwag hit 2174 runs for his team, DC, at an average of 29.37. But always and forever faithful to his own nature, it was his strike rate of 160.32 that set him apart. He, furthermore, grasps the record of the most 50-plus scores for the Delhi franchise.
- DAVID WARNER:
David Warner, apparently, would prod out to open the batting, partnering Sehwag in Delhi Capital’s all-time XI. The Australian would create a massive opening pair with Sehwag. The southpaw has packed an impressive 1435 runs for the Delhi franchise, at an average of 28.70 and a decent strike rate of 133.11.
- GAUTAM GAMBHIR:
Gautam Gambhir would walk on stage with his bat for all-time Delhi Capitals XI at the fall of the first wicket. Although principally an opener, the Delhi left-hander would have to bat one-down to entirely fit in place of the excellent duo of Warner and Sehwag at the top of the order. He has amassed himself 1182 runs for Delhi Capitals at a decent average of 29.55 and a strike rate of 122.86
- SHREYAS LYER:
Shreyas Lyer would gather himself at No. 4 position in this all-time Delhi Capitals XI. Lyer, the Mumbai middle-order batsman has improved his game, not in a whole, but by placing one step beyond another, in the last couple of years and has also shouldered the responsibility of captaining the side after Gambhir quit the job up. Shreyas Lyer is, as of information, the third-highest run-scorer for Delhi Capitals, with 1681 runs to his name. These runs have come at an average of 30.56 and a strike rate of 126.96.
- RISHABH PANT:
Rishabh, doing his job right, is the man of finisher and an attacking batsman in the middle-order for Delhi Capitals’ all-time XI.
Pant has thudded 1736 runs for Delhi Capitals, the second-highest by any Delhi batsman, behind only Sehwag in the game.
The runs he amassed, were scored at an average of 36.16 and an outstanding strike rate of 162.69, the best among all Delhi Capitals batsmen who have faced a minimum of 125 deliveries in the IPL.
- JEAN-PAUL DUMINY:
Jean-Paul Duminy would seize the final spot in the middle-order of the all-time Delhi Capitals XI. Duminy, in the game, smashed 1015 runs for Delhi Capitals at an impressive average of 44.13 and a strike rate of 130.79.
Duminy has snatched away 13 wickets while playing for the Delhi outfit, at an acceptable average of 32.38.
- CHRIS MORRIS:
Chris Morris, in count, would be the only authetic all-rounder in this all-time Delhi Capitals XI. The South African has hold of a tremendous record for the Delhi franchise, although he could not replicate that performance in IPL 2019. Morris, in the game, has scored 427 runs for Delhi Capitals at an average of 28.46 respectively.
- KAGISO RABADA:
He, as a great player in himself as well, would lead the pace bowling department of the Delhi Capitals all-time XI. Kagiso Rabada has packed himself 31 wickets for Delhi Capitals in only 18 matches, which in fact, is impressive. These wickets have arrived at an average of 17.93, the best in the history of the IPL among bowlers who have delivered a minimum of 250 balls.
- ZAHEER KHAN:
Zaheer Khan would give in his much-needed experience and guile to the bowling attack of the all-time Delhi Capitals XI. For the most part of the information, Khan has 27 items to his name for Delhi Capitals in the IPL. These wickets, to him, have arrived at an average of 29.85 and an economy rate of 7.46.
Amit Mishra would be considered as the only specialist spinner in this all-time Delhi Capitals XI. Mishra has pocketed 97 wickets for Delhi Capitals at an average of 23.97 and a decent economy rate of 7.33, respectively.
Ashish nehra would occupy the final spot in this all-time Delhi Capitals XI. Nehra packed 36 wickets for Delhi Capitals in the IPL at an average of 21.05, the best amongst all Indian bowlers who, in the game, have delivered a minimum of 250 balls for the Delhi franchise.
