HIGHLIGHTS

  • Shreyas Iyer is set to appear for the 26th time as Delhi’s captain
  • Virender Sehwag is the most capped Delhi captain
  • Iyer replaced Gambhir as DC’s captain in mid IPL 2019

Delhi Capitals started their IPL 2020 journey on Day 2 of the competition in the UAE as they locked horns with Kings XI Punjab. KL Rahul leading the KXIP side for the first time in the IPL made an entry as the 12th standing captain of the franchise. The Indian top-order batsman’s appearance as captain made KXIP become the IPL franchise with most number of captains till date in 13 editions of the marquee T20 league.

The second in the list of teams with most IPL captains is Punjab’s opponent in today’s game- Delhi Capitals. The Delhi-based franchise were previously known as the Delhi Daredevils and the name was only changed to Delhi Capitals ahead of IPL 2018. The franchise has had 11 captains with Shreyas Iyer being the latest one as he was named captain mid-way in the 2019 season replacing Gautam Gambhir. Iyer had replaced Gambhir as the franchise’s captain mid-way of the 2019 IPL season.
