In this article, let us look at the complete schedule for the Delhi Capitals (DC) side for the upcoming IPL edition.
The Delhi Capitals (DC) will kick off their campaign against three-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Mumbai on 10th April 2021. The Delhi side will remain in Mumbai and play 2 more league matches. After that, they will move to Chennai to play their next 2 games.
The Shreyas Iyer-led side will subsequently move to Ahmedabad to play their next 4 matches, before finally moving to Kolkata to finish their remaining fixtures. Delhi will play their last league match on 23rd May 2021 against the Mumbai Indians (MI).
Delhi Capitals (DC) have not won the IPL title yet
The Delhi Capitals (DC) side was extremely impressive last year, and finished as the runners up in the 2020 edition that was held in the UAE. They won 8 out of their 14 league matches, but stumbled in the final hurdle, where they lost to the Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians (MI) franchise.
In the 2021 IPL auction, the Delhi side bought Australian batting maestro Steve Smith for INR 2.2 Crores. They also bought Indian pacer Umesh Yadav for a paltry sum of INR 1 Crore. England pacer Tom Curran was bought by Delhi for a sum of INR 5.5 Crores, while Sam Billings was pouched for INR 2 Crores.
Apart from these major signings, Delhi also bought as many as 4 players for just INR 20 Lakhs. The 4 players are Manimaran Siddarth, Ripal Patel, Lukman Meriwala and Vishnu Vinod. The Delhi side has not won the IPL title even once. They came extremely close to doing so last year.
Shreyas Iyer and his men will be hoping that they can win the IPL silverware for the first time in the 14th IPL edition. Let us take a look at the entire schedule of matches for the Delhi outfit.
