However, Rohit Sharma lifted the cup for the first time but it was a great journey for the young guns in Delhi Capitals.

The franchise has put its money on Steve Smith, Sam Billings, Umesh Yadav, Ripal Patel, Vishnu Vinod, Tom Curran, M Siddharth and Lukman Meriwala.
It will be interesting to watch Shreyas Iyer, how he manages the Delhi squad this time with Steve Smith in the bag.
