Under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer and the watchful gaze of coach Ricky Ponting, IPL 2020 turned out to be the best ever in the history of Delhi Capitals. They were impressive during the initial stage of the season before losing ground. However, they recovered from the mini slump to finish second in the points table and made the playoffs.

They eventually made the final where they lost to Mumbai Indians. However, they must have been mighty impressed with how different players stood up for them throughout the tournament. They will be starting their season against three-time former champions Chennai Super Kings on April 10
