Delhi was on top in the league stage
Delhi played well in the league stage. The team had won 10 out of 14 matches and kept the first position in the points table with 20 points. But in the playoffs, the team had to face defeat in two consecutive matches. In the first qualifier, he was defeated by Chennai Super Kings and in the second he was beaten by KKR. This is the second consecutive year that the team of Delhi Capitals stayed away from the title. Earlier in IPL 2020, the team was defeated by Mumbai Indians in the final. This was Delhi’s first IPL final. Earlier this team had never reached the title match.
Mega auction is to be held before IPL 2022. In this, due to two new teams, the players of all the teams will have to be selected afresh. In this sense, many players of Delhi Capitals playing in IPL 2021 will hardly be with him next year. It is believed that players like Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant will be retained by the Delhi team.
