DC squad has performed exceptionally well this year. Think tanks like Ricky Pointing and Saurav Ganguly have been their part of the campaign which has certainly payed off. Shikhar Dhawan’s form has proved to be very important for DC. Shreyas Iyer has looked great with the bat this season. Rishabh Pant has played a few helpful knocks too for the team. The likes of Kagiso Rabada and other bowlers have bowled with discipline and proved to be match winners. Overall the whole team consists of young players and have shown a lot of character to reach the playoffs.
