Delhi Capitals Predicted XI

The capital city franchise followed the philosophy of backing youth from Men's IPL and invested heavily in the youth. They snapped the Indian duo of Shafali Verma and Jemimah Rodrigues. With the likes of Marizanne Kapp and Meg Lanning in their kitty, Delhi will depend on their experience for the leadership.

Delhi Capitals have brought in Tara Norris of USA and it will help them field five foreigners under the associate nation rule.
