DC 2021 Head Coach
Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting is the head coach of the Delhi Capitals Team for IPL 2021. Ponting has been the head of the DC coaching staff since 2018. The team finished third in 2019 and second in 2020 with Ponting as the head coach.
During his active days, Ponting played for the Mumbai Indians and the Kolkata Knight Riders Team in the IPL. He even had a brief coaching stint with the Mumbai-based franchise. Delhi Capitals have been quite successful in the IPL after Ponting joined as the head coach.
DC 2021 Batting Coach
The Delhi Capitals have not named a batting coach yet for IPL 2021. Interestingly, the Capitals did not have a special batting coach last year as well. Ricky Ponting might be helping the Delhi batsmen in this department.
Ponting was one of the greatest batsmen of his era. Also, former Indian batsman, Mohammad Kaif is the assistant coach of Delhi Capitals. Kaif was recently playing in the Road Safety World Series.

DC 2021 Bowling Coach
The Delhi Capitals had two bowling coaches in 2020. They had roped in Samuel Badree as their spin bowling coach. Meanwhile, former Australian pacer Ryan Harris was the fast bowling coach.
Surprisingly, the Delhi Capitals have not retained any of the two coaches. The current coaching staff list on DC’s official website does not have a bowling coach. It will be interesting to see if DC enters IPL 2021 without a bowling coach.

DC 2021 Fielding Coach
The Delhi Capitals do not have a fielding coach as well for IPL 2021. However, Mohammad Kaif would likely be helping the youngsters in the fielding department. Many fans regard Kaif as one of the best fielders in cricket history.
Kaif fielded brilliantly in the Road Safety World Series recently. Notably, the Capitals did not have a specific fielding coach in IPL 2020 as well. Still, the team finished at the runner-up position.
