Delhi Capitals have been one of the most consistent sides in the last three seasons of the Indian Premier league. They made it to the playoffs in 2019, were the runners-up in 2020 and are once again off to a good start this season. The Capitals made it to the top of the IPL 2021 table before the tournament got postponed due to COVID-19 cases within the team bio-bubbles. They won six out of their first eight matches and have maintained a superb net run rate of +0.547 as well.
The Capitals need just two more wins in their remaining six matches to ensure a safe passage into the playoffs. They will be eager to get off to a good start once again as the tournament resumes in the UAE on 19 September. DC will play their first match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad on 22 September in Dubai. Even though Shreyas Iyer has recovered from his injury and has been cleared to play in the season, the management has already confirmed that Rishabh Pant will continue to lead the side.

All four players have scored heaps of runs in the IPL over the years but if you are looking to go with a safe bet in a match, you should place your bets on Dhawan and Iyer for most runs scored.
Players expected to score a fifty in any particular match

Delhi have some really good wicket-takers in their ranks. Kagiso Rabada bowls both with the new ball and at the death and that places him with a good chance of picking up multiple wickets in every match. Avesh Khan has also done well of late and he is another player you can consider. On dry tracks, Amit Mishra and Ravichandran Ashwin are two other bowlers you can look at.
