IPL DC Team 2021 Players List: In Shreyas Iyer’s absence, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant will be leading the side. Iyer was injured during England’s tour of India as he partially dislocated his left shoulder. Under Iyer’s captaincy last year, DC reached the final for the first time. (IPL 2021 Full Schedule)

Delhi Capitals are one of the sides to have not released many players before the auction. Most first-team players have been retained, leading to only slight changes made to the roster.

DC did not break the bank in IPL 2021 auction as their most expensive player was England bowling all-rounder Tom Curran. They did not have to spend big bucks on Steve Smith either as they got him slightly above his base price.

Players retained: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, R Ashwin, Lalit Yadav, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Pravin Dubey, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Chris Woakes, Daniel Sams
