The Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals endured a lackluster outing in the previous edition of the Indian Premier League as they were knocked out of the playoffs race by the bottom-placed Mumbai Indians in a do-or-die clash. Delhi Capitals handed Rishabh Pant the captaincy reigns after Shreyas Iyer was sidelined due to an injury. The team continued with Pant in IPL 2022, where the side managed to win 7 seven matches. Though the team had qualified for the playoffs in the previous three editions of the tournament but stumbled a bit under the leadership of Rishabh Pant.
Meanwhile, DC has retained their core squad which includes captain Rishabh Pant, power-hitter David Warner and Prithvi Shaw, while retaining 19 players on Tuesday. Apart from this, DC has also retained six overseas players, including Australian batter David Warner, West Indies batter Rovman Powell, South African fast bowlers Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi, Bangladesh speedster Mustafizur Rahman and Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh.
DC has also released 4 players which include Indian players including the likes of Mandeep Singh, KS Bharat and Ashwin Hebbar and a New Zealand player named Tim Seifert.
