IPL 2021, Delhi Capitals: All you need to know about DC's squad and full schedule

FirstCricket Staff
·2-min read

Delhi Capitals (DC), the finalists from IPL 2020, will be looking to go one step ahead in IPL 2021 to clinch their maiden trophy.

The side led by Shreyas Iyer performed exceptionally well under the watchful eyes of head coach Ricky Ponting. The former Australia captain turned coach has this year roped in batting start from his country Steve Smith to boost DC's chance in the upcoming edition.

Not to forget, DC are not playing any match this year at home, thanks to the change of rules due to COVID-19, which has affected some states more than others, leading the governing body to cut down on the travel for all teams, eventually giving a fair schedule where no team plays at home.

Apart from Smith, DC this year at auction also bought Indian speedster Umesh Yadav, to strengthen their pace attack. DC already boast of a formiddable fast bowling unit with the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje in their line-up.

DC play their first game on 10 April against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Here's their full schedule for IPL 2021:
