IPL 2023 – Delhi Capitals Preview: Full Squad, Strength, Weakness, Schedule and more

The Delhi Capitals, one of the eight founding teams of the Indian Premier League (IPL), are yet to lift the trophy despite having a lot of potentials. In 2020, they entered the final but lost to Mumbai. Ahead of IPL 2023, let’s take a look at the team’s history, current squad, strengths, weaknesses, form, and chances of winning the tournament.

Delhi Capitals’, owned jointly by the GMR and JSW groups, were expected to be one of the most successful teams in the IPL due to the city’s status as the capital of India. However, they have failed to live up to the billing, finishing in the top four only thrice in 13 seasons.

Full Squad

The team have a strong and versatile batting lineup consisting of David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rilee Rossouw, Sarfaraz Khan, and Rovman Powell. Warner is one of the greatest T20 batters of all time, while Shaw is a talented young batter who loves to go after the bowlers. Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh brings his experience to the table and can also provide at least 2-3 overs. The team’s spin attack is led by Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav.

Full squad of Delhi Capitals:

  1. Ricky Ponting (Head Coach)
  2. David Warner (Captain)
  3. Rishabh Pant (Batsman/Wicket-keeper)
  4. Axar Patel (All-Rounder)
  5. Prithvi Shaw (Batsman)
  6. Anrich Nortje (Bowler)
  7. Mitchell Marsh (All-Rounder)
  8. Sarfaraz Khan (Batsman)
  9. Kamlesh Nagarkoti (Bowler)
  10. Mustafizur Rahman (Bowler)
  11. Kuldeep Yadav (Bowler)
  12. Khaleel Ahmed (Bowler)
  13. Chetan Sakariya (Bowler)
  14. Lalit Yadav (All-Rounder)
  15. Ripal Patel (All-Rounder)
  16. Yash Dhull (Batsman)
  17. Rovman Powell (Batsman)
  18. Pravin Dubey (Bowler)
  19. Lungi Ngidi (Bowler)
  20. Vicky Ostwal (All-Rounder)
  21. Aman Khan (All-Rounder)
  22. Phil Salt (Wicket-keeper)
  23. Ishant Sharma (Bowler)
  24. Mukesh Kumar (Bowler)
  25. Manish Pandey (Batsman)
  26. Rilee Rossouw (Batsman)

Here is their strongest XI: 

  • David Warner [c]
  • Prithvi Shaw
  • Mitchell Marsh
  • Sarfaraz Khan [wk]
  • Rovman Powell
  • Lalit Yadav
  • Axar Patel
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Anrich Nortje
  • Mukesh Kumar
  • Khaleel Ahmed


Prithvi Shaw has a great chance to perform for the team and make his way into the playing XI. This season might also be a good opportunity for Rilee Rossouw and Phil Salt to make their mark if other players go out of form.


The team’s batting lineup has the potential to score a lot of runs and create a threat for their opponents. They also have a strong spin attack, which can turn the game around for them.


The team’s regular captain, Rishabh Pant, is set to miss IPL 2023 due to injury, which could hamper their playing XI. Mitchell Marsh is an impact all-rounder, but it remains to be seen if he can deliver some overs for the team. The team may also struggle to make a place for Mustafizur Rahman in the playing XI due to the “four overseas player” rule.


In IPL 2022, the team failed to make it to the playoffs, winning seven out of 14 matches and finishing fifth in the points table.

Chances of Winning

While the team have the potential to win the IPL, they need to perform consistently and overcome their weaknesses to lift the trophy. With a strong batting lineup and spin attack, they could surprise everyone and go all the way.


Here’s the complete list of their fixtures for the season:

1April 1Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi CapitalsLucknow

The team have a strong squad and a good chance of winning the IPL 2023. With a well-balanced team and some talented players, they could turn their potential into success this season. However, they need to work on their weaknesses and perform consistently throughout the tournament to achieve their goal. It will be interesting to see how they fare in the upcoming season and if they can lift the trophy for the first time in their history.
