In preparation for the IPL 2024 auction, teams have let go of certain players to create space in their rosters for potential new acquisitions. Delhi Capitals is one of the IPL teams that has not won any trophy even after 15 editions of the tournament and will look to amend that.

In IPL 2024, Delhi Capitals will aim for their first-ever title. In the 2020 season, they reached the final and it was their best show. In the last edition, Delhi Capitals gave a miserable show. They won just 5 games out of 14 and finished in the second last position in the points table. The franchise was short of their skipper Rishabh Pant, who was out after suffering a life-threatening car accident. 

Now with another promising season in the offing, the DC franchise will look to assemble the missing pieces and win their maiden IPL trophy.
