Delhi Capitals has shown the courage of fighting in the games they are about to lose and even registered victories. Despite having a new and young captain, they became the most successful team of the IPL 2021 during the league stage and registered 10 wins out of the 14 games. There are not only 1 or 2 players winning games for this team. The entire team is performing really well and every player is playing his part in the team.
The team is so strong that even injuries of their key players like Shreyas Iyer and Marcus Stoinis didn’t affect their performance. However, there are still few players that are really necessary for the DC to win every game. Delhi Capitals needs them to perform really well in the second semifinal against KKR and in the finals against CSK to win this IPL 2021 trophy. Here we are going to discuss three key players for the Delhi Capitals in these crucial games.
3) Shreyas Iyer (Delhi Capitals)
Shreyas Iyer has played only 7 games for Delhi Capitals this season. It’s because of the injury that kept him out for the first 8 games of the tournament. However, he made a comeback really well and smashed 145 runs in the 7 innings. This might not be good as other batters of DC but the availability of Shreyas Iyer is adding the much-needed balance in the side as well as he is also helping Rishabh Pant in captaincy.
Shreyas Iyer has experience playing such important games. He is a reliable batsman for DC, who can score runs when no one can. If he is on the crease means there are high chances that DC will win that match.
2) Rishabh Pant (Delhi Capitals)
Delhi Capitals’ new captain Rishabh Pant has performed really well as a batsman as well as a captain. He is the youngest captain to lead his side to the IPL semifinals. He has scored 413 runs in the 15 games this season with a strike rate of 129. He has the ability to score quickly and smash bowlers out of the park any time.

He is the captain this time and playing more responsibly than ever. Rishabh Pant has scored three fifties this season and one of them came against Chennai Supers Kings in the first semifinal. We can expect the same in the upcoming games as well.
1) Axar Patel (Delhi Capitals)
Axar Patel’s name might surprise you in the number one spot on this list, but believe us, he has done more damage to opponents than any other Delhi Capitals player. Axar Patel is the second-highest wicket-taker from the Delhi Capitals this season. He has taken 15 wickets out of the 11 games he got to play. He has an economy rate of just 6.5 which is better than Avesh Khan, Kagiso Rabada, and Anrich Nortje.
He does have the ability to score the runs when needed. But most importantly, he is the most consistent player of the Delhi Capitals this season with wickets in almost every game he had played this season. He always provided the breakthrough when team needed it the most. He is a game changer for Delhi Capitals and he can do the same again.
