Delhi Capitals Squad 2024 & Match Schedule

Delhi Capitals team is jointly owned by GMR Group and the JSW Group who are now going globally as they purchased teams in other leagues like SA20 & ILT20. The franchise has recently confirmed their Delhi Capitals squad 2024 for IPL 17. The team Delhi was previously known as Delhi Daredevils which was not a great branded name so they later changed it to Capitals which is more brandable and professional. In the last 16 editions of IPL, they did come close to winning the title a few times but were unable to achieve the glory which has been a significant disappointment for millions and millions of passionate Delhi fans. 

Delhi Capitals Full Squad 2024

Delhi Capitals team 2024 will certainly look to forget the poor last year’s performances and setbacks and have a fresh start to finally achieve the glory they have been searching for past 15 years. Rishabh Pant is announced as Delhi Capitals captain 2024 for TATA IPL 2024. Before the IPL auction event, DC this year released many International star cricketers like Rilee Rossouw, Rovman Powell & Phil Salt to get more space in their budget for the auction. 

Even after the poor show in the last season, management has kept their faith in the majority of the players which is why they retained 16 players from last year’s squad. The complete Delhi Capitals team 2024 Players List is as follows.

Released Players: Rilee Rossouw, Chetan Sakariya, Rovman Powell, Manish Pandey, Phil Salt, Mustafizur Rahman, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Ripal Patel, Sarfaraz Khan, Aman Khan, Priyam Garg.

Ricky Ponting as head coach did a reasonably good job for the retentions as well as players picked in the draft. They got some great options in the pace battery along with top-quality batters upfront and in the middle order. Spinners like Kuldeep Yadav & Axar Patel will also come in handy with their vast IPL & International experience they got.

Coaches of Delhi Capitals 2024

Team owners and tactical management of Delhi Capitals team 2024 have confirmed all the coaching staff for the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League. There have not been many significant changes in the coaching panel from last year. 

Coach TitleName
Head CoachRicky Ponting
Assistant Head CoachAjit Agarkar, Pravin Amre & Shane Watson
Fast Bowling CoachJames Hopes
Fielding CoachBiju George
PhysioPatrick Farhart
AnalystSriram Somayajula
Strength and Conditioning CoachVivek Ramakrishna & Wayne Lombard

Ricky Ponting as head coach and with Shane Watson as an assistant coach are surely two of the best cricketing minds to formulate the best possible strategy for Delhi to win their first ever IPL title. I believe Shane Watson will also act as a batting coach because of the vast T20 experience he got. The coaching panel of DC is good enough to manage Delhi Capitals squad 2024 effectively and with a clear and-cut strategy to win. 

DC Overall IPL Wins

As mentioned earlier, DC has never won any IPL title so far but they have reached the playoffs stage six times but were unable to clinch the trophy. Rishabh Pant as a leader for DC is still in a learning phase and this will be the third time he will lead Delhi in IPL. Below is a breakdown of Delhi Capitals IPL performance every year. 

YearSummary
2008Semi-finalists
2009Semi-finalists
2010League stage
2011League stage
2012Playoffs
2013League stage
2014League stage

2016League stage
2017League stage
2018League stage
2019Playoffs
2020Runners up
2021Playoffs
2022League stage

In 2018, Delhi decided to rope in Ricky Ponting as the head coach and under him they did play the final one time which they lost in 2020. Delhi team owners will surely want their team to repeat their efforts of IPL 2020 in the coming edition of IPL but this time with a trophy under their belt so they can finally join the CHAMPIONS group of IPL which is not that big, to be honest since Mumbai Indians won 5 times & Chennai Super Kings won 4 times.
