Delhi Capitals’ IPL Journey and Final Appearances 

The franchise currently known as Delhi Capitals is one of the eight original teams that have played in every IPL season since 2008. Back then, they were known as the Delhi Daredevils.

Over the years, Delhi has made the playoffs six times with semi-final appearances in 2008, 2009, 2012, and 2018. 

Their most successful IPL campaign came in 2020 under captain Shreyas Iyer when they qualified for their maiden IPL final. Prior to that, Delhi’s best performance was reaching the semi-finals on four separate occasions.

After finishing third in 2019, Delhi had a fabulous 2020 season winning 7 of their first 9 matches led by the batting exploits of Shikhar Dhawan. 

Delhi ultimately finished second in the league phase with 16 points before beating Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2 to book their berth in the 2020 final against the mighty Mumbai Indians.

DC’s Campaign in IPL 2020 and Loss in Final vs MI  

Delhi Capitals played their one and only IPL final so far in 2020 against defending champions Mumbai Indians. It was a clash between two of the most consistent teams of that season.  

Batting first in the final after winning the toss in Dubai, Mumbai Indians posted a formidable total of 200/5 in their 20 overs. 

Skipper Rohit Sharma led from the front with a 51-ball 68 before Kieron Pollard provided the late impetus with an unbeaten 13-ball 37 to take MI past the 200-run mark. Trent Boult was the pick of the DC bowlers with figures of 2/28 in 4 overs.

Chasing 201 for their maiden IPL crown, Delhi Capitals got off to a disastrous start by losing openers Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ajinkya Rahane with no runs on the board in the first three overs.

Chasing 201 for their maiden IPL crown, Delhi Capitals got off to a disastrous start by losing openers Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ajinkya Rahane with no runs on the board in the first three overs.

Delhi never recovered from those early blows before crawling to 143/8 in 20 overs to lose the final comfortably by 57 runs. Their poor batting display after such a consistent season with the bat cost Shreyas Iyer’s men in the all-important final clash.

As we head into the 2024 edition of the IPL, Delhi Capitals will be extremely eager to lay their hands on the elusive trophy after falling agonizingly short in 2020.

Under new captain Rishabh Pant after Shreyas Iyer’s departure to Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi will be targeting nothing less than the IPL 2024 title after qualifying for the playoffs last season too.
