IPL Titles: Delhi Capitals
Delhi Daredevils, as they used to be called, had a rough time in the IPL over 6 straight seasons, starting from 2013 – failing to make it to the playoffs. They finally shook things up in the 2019 season and qualified for the playoff, only to lose to Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2.
The team was then rebranded as Delhi Capitals and has since been making steady progress. In the 2020 season, they made it to the IPL final but lost to reigning champions Mumbai Indians. Before the 2020 season, they were the only team not to have appeared in an IPL final.
In the 2021 season, Delhi Capitals finished top of the points table and reached the Qualifier 2, only to lose to KKR. They have made it to the playoffs or semis six times in their 13 IPL seasons, finishing last in their group four times.
However, their recent performances have been impressive, with their last three playoff appearances coming in the last three seasons. With a young and thriving team, they are now poised for a fresh start and are determined to secure their first IPL title.
