Despite some brilliant performances, Delhi Capitasl (DC) could not make it to the knockout stage last year. Though Warmer joined the DC camp late, he still put on a memorable performance in the tournament alongside his Indian teammates Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, and Axar Patel. 

The Capitals showed the kind of conviction in the auction that their fans would have expected. DC entered the auction with a decent purse of 19.45 crores with not many players to be bought in the mini-auction, and the management seemed to be convinced with only a few players and not much resistance or competition from their opponents.

DC Full Squad For IPL 2023

Though Delhi Capitals failed to win the title in 2022, Ricky Ponting and his team will look to make a strong comeback in this year’s IPL. Delhi Capitals are one of the strongest sides in this year’s IPL, especially with the inclusion of former Proteas batter Rilee Rossouw.

The team has the experience, form, and class of a perfect team, with top-tier aggressive openers in the most convincing IPL performer, David Warner, and the talented Prithvi Shaw, a formidable middle order led by the skipper himself, and all-rounder Marsh with a decent tail of bowlers. 

Here’s the squad: Rishab Pant ( C ), David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Ripal Patel, Rovman Powell, Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, Aman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Praveen Dubey, Vicky Ostwal, Ishant Sharma, Phil Salt, Mukesh Kumar, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw.

DC Predicted Playing XI For IPL 2023

The Capitals are expected to make significant changes to their lineup this season in order to improve their chances of winning the Stanley Cup. DC would not like to make changes to its outstanding opening pair of young and prolific Prithvi Shaw and pocket-dynamite Warner. However, the capitals would introduce a new middle-order set-up with Rossouw, Dhull, and Pandey alongside skipper Pant and all-rounder Marsh.

With the departure of Shardul, the Delhi tail lacks batting efficiency, but they can breathe a sigh of relief with Axar announcing a return to form in the ongoing home series against Sri Lanka. 

DC Predicted XI: 

  1. Prithvi Shaw
  2. David Warner
  3. Rilee Rossouw
  4. Yash Dhull
  5. Rishab Pant ( C ) (wk)
  6. Mitchell Marsh
  7. Axar Patel
  8. Mukesh Kumar
  9. Kuldeep Yadav
  10. Anrich Nortje
  11. Khaleel Ahmed
