Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer is a most consistent performer for their side in the recent past. He is leading Delhi Capitals from the front along with Rishabh Pant as they are the experience players for the side. Under his captaincy, DC performed reasonably well in the last edition as they reached to the playoffs in IPL 2019 since 2012. So, he will be a key player for his side. He will be a part of almost all Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.

Shimron Hetymer: West Indies explosive batsman Shimron Hetymer showed what he is capable of just a few days before the auction as he smashed a fine century against India. Shimron Hetmyer will be a crucial part of the side throughout the whole season of largest fantasy cricket league i.e. IPL 2020. Hetmyer’s presence in the middle-order could be a huge advantage for them. He could well be the X-factor along with their skipper Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant for DC in IPL 2020.

Kagiso Rabada: The ace South African pacer Kagiso Rabada was one of the reasons for Delhi’s success last season. He is an aggressive bowler who can beat any batsman with his pace and accurate line and length. He is usually very quick and bowls above 140 km/h continuously and nailed yorkers at the death. In the last edition of IPL 2019, he picked up 25 wickets from 12 matches at a good average of 14.72. If he was injured towards the end of the season, Rabada would've easily ended the season with the Purple Cap. So, DC will depend on him most on time in this season of IPL 2020.
