Shreyas Iyer will lead the side while batting legend Ricky Ponting will continue to be the head coach with Mohammad Kaif to assist the Australian.

After series of underwhelming performances over the years, the Capitals have undergone a major revamp. Known as Delhi Daredevils, they were rechristened to Delhi Capitals in December last year with a brand new logo.

More recently, they announced seasoned administrator Dhiraj Malhotra as their new Chief Executive Officer and Srinath TB as Head of Operations.
