Here is a look at the problems which are on hand for the Delhi Capitals and what the teams look like. Rishabh Pant will be scratching his head as 5 overseas players are not available in the first game.

The Delhi Capitals is one team that has been on the rise for the past few years. The team always has their basis covered. This is owed to their exceptional performances at the auction table. The Delhi Capitals have a lot on their table for the IPL 2022 season. Delhi Capitals has a big problem to deal with too. What is it? Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw will have a lot relying on them. Here is a look at what the team looks like: 

Delhi Capitals Squad for IPL 2022: 

Player Name Position Player Name Position 
Rishabh Pant Batter/Keeper KS Bharat Batter/Keeper 
Axar Patel All-Rounder Kamlesh Nagarkoti Fast Bowler 
Prithvi Shaw Batter Khaleel Ahmed  Fast-Bowler 
Anrich Nortje  Fast Bowler Chetan Sakariya Fast Bowler 
Khaleel Ahmed Fast Bowler Lalit Yadav All-Rounder 
David Warner Batter Ripal Patel All-Rounder 
Mitchell Marsh All-Rounder Yash Dhull Batter 
Kuldeep Yadav Spinner Rovman Powell  All-Rounder 
Shardul Thakur  All-Rounder Pravin Dubey All-Rounder 
Mustafizur Rahman Fast Bowler Lungi Ngidi Fast Bowler 
Ashwin Hebbar All-Rounder Vicky Ostwal Spinner 
Abhishek Sharma All-Rounder   
Mandeep Singh Batter   

Delhi Capitals IPL 2022 Playing XI: 

For the first 3 games: 

Tim Siefert, Prithvi Shaw, Yash Dhull, Mandeep Singh/KS Bharat, Rishabh Pant (C, WK), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Chetan Sakariya. 

For Rest of the Tournament: 

David Waner, Prithvi Shaw, Mandeep Singh/KS Bharat, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (C, WK), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya. 

Strengths of DC: 

The strength of the Delhi Capitals lies in their Indian core. Prithvi Shaw, Axar Patel, Rishabh Pant, KS Bharat, Khaleel Ahmed, and Kuldeep Yadav are players who have been associated with the national team for a few years. Mandeep Singh also has a lot of experience. With Anrich Nortje in the mix, their fast-bowling looks very sorted. Mitchell Marsh will provide the all-around option.  

Weakness of the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2022: 

There is no evident weakness as all bases are covered by the team. But if the spin of Kuldeep Yadav doesn’t come off well, the team lacks a backup spinner. Prithvi Shaw hasn’t been in the best of form in the Ranji Trophy, this can also be a point of concern.  

Opportunities for the Delhi Capitals:

The opportunities are for many young players. The absence of 5 overseas players has depleted the team and they may have only 2 overseas players in the first game. So, Yash Dhull is likely to get a game. Tim Siefert can also get a game or two. Kuldeep Yadav, who has been under scrutiny for doing nothing wrong, can also prove a point.  

Threats for the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2022: 

The threat is the absence of big names in the first few games. David Warner, Anrich Nortje, Mitchell Marsh, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, etc. all these players will be missed in the first 3 to 4 games. In their absence, the Indian players will have to stand up and show character. Another threat is the injury of Anrich Nortje. After the injury, the first thing that drops for a fast bowler is his pace. The same might be the case with Nortje.
