The Delhi based franchise renamed its team, from Delhi Daredevils to Delhi Capitals, in December 2018 and it turned out to be lucky as
led side managed to reach the playoffs after seven years.
After an impressive outing last year, Delhi retained most of its core players, namely Shreyas Iyer, wicket keeper Rishabh Pant, and pacer Kagiso Rabada. The franchise, however, released some under-performers like Colin Munro, Colin Ingram, and Chris Morris.
In the IPL 2020
auctions, DC then bagged Alex Carey
and Jason Roy to strengthen its batting while Chris Woakes, Mohit Sharma, Lalit Yadav, and Tushar Deshpande were added to the bowling unit. The franchise also showed a lot of faith in Shimron Hetmyer
and Marcus Stoinis
after bagging them at a high price.
On the other hand, Punjab is one of the few teams that always look good on paper before a season starts. But the players fail to deliver the goods when it matters. The Chandigarh based franchise has always had some quality players in its ranks, but the team somehow loses the plot as the tournament progresses. KXIP managed a place in the semi-finals of the inaugural edition and finished as runners-up in 2014 after losing to KKR in the summit clash.
KXIP is one of the three teams -- Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and DC being the others --who are yet to lay their hands on the IPL trophy.
Charismatic India opener KL Rahul
will lead KXIP after the franchise released Ashwin. The team showed faith in Glenn Maxwell, Sheldon Cottrell, James Neesham, Deepak Hooda, Ravi Bishnoi, Chris Jordan and youngster Ishan Porel during the IPL 2020
auctions. While Maxwell will surely strengthen the middle order, Cottrell and Neesham will take charge of Punjab's pace attack.
