Top Three Players to watch out for Delhi Capitals in 2022 IPL

Delhi Capitals will be looking to go the distance and clinch their maiden IPL Trophy this season. With Ricky Ponting as head coach of the franchise, Delhi Capitals once again failed to make to the finals of the competition. The franchise will go into the season with some key names missing from action as Anrich Nortje is still recovering from injury. The Perennial Under-Achievers will be among the main contenders to lift the coveted prize this season.

With the lot of decent acquisitions during the IPL Auction held in February, here are our three players, who can certainly help Delhi lift their maiden trophy in this year’s Indian Premier League.

Prithvi Shaw

With Shikhar Dhawan being signed by Punjab Kings this season, the onus will be on the swashbuckling opener to lead the batting charge for Delhi Capitals. Last season, Prithvi Shaw showcased excellent form and accumulated 479 runs in 15 matches at an average of 31.93 with four half-centuries to his name.

He will be looking to get the side off to brisk starts in the Powerplay overs this season. The franchise will be hoping that the opener can overcome fitness issues and deliver his best with the bat in this year’s Indian Premier League.

Shaw is coming into this year’s Indian Premier League on the back of splendid form shown in the domestic cricket. There is every reason to believe that Shaw has been one of the bankable performers for Delhi Capitals for the past couple of years. A good showing here in the IPL would certainly push the selection committee into selecting him for the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup.

Rishabh Pant

Swashbuckling batsman will be keen to lead from the front with the bat in this year’s Indian Premier League. Wicket-keeper batsman has shown decent form so far this season and will be keen to continue his merry ways with the bat this IPL season.

Last year, Rishabh Pant showed decent form and accumulated 419 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 128.52 with three fifties to his name. Left-hander will be looking to make a strong statement with the bat in this upcoming fifteenth edition of Indian Premier League.

Pant has been consistent performer for Delhi for past couple of years and will need to deliver runs for the side in this year’s Indian Premier League.

Kuldeep Yadav

Left-arm Chinaman will be looking for redemption in this year’s IPL. After sitting on the sidelines for most part of the last year, Kuldeep Yadav has been signed by Delhi Capitals for this year’s Indian Premier League.

Last year, Kuldeep Yadav made a handful of appearances for Kolkata Knight Riders and claimed one wicket in five outings at an average of 92.00. He will be looking to make a strong comeback and revive white-ball career this season. A couple of years ago, Kuldeep Yadav was the premier spinner for Indian cricket team but loss of form saw him get dropped from the squad.

Delhi Capitals will be hoping that the left-arm Chinaman can deliver the goods with the ball in the upcoming edition of Indian Premier League. He is expected to be in the final XI for Delhi Capitals this season. If pitches provide assistance, Kuldeep Yadav could be huge threat for Delhi in this year’s IPL.
