The Delhi Capitals (DC) had an excellent run in IPL 2020, impressing in the league stage and comfortably making the playoffs, before faltering at the last hurdle and losing to Mumbai Indians in the final. This time around, the Ricky Ponting-coached unit will look to go one step further, and claim their first-ever Indian Premier League title.
