Quite a surprising name on the list, Delhi's change in their name has led to a change in its fortunes too. The Capitals have been an extremely wonderful team this year. They are currently occupying the second position on the points table and look extremely strong contenders for making it to the play offs.

Delhi have a perfect team which consists of experience and young blood. They have a lot of match winners in the team and their players can single handedly take their team home on their days. The likes of Rishabh Pant, Colin Ingram and Keemo Paul have been extremely consistent while players like Rabada and Morris have been the backbone of their team.

More than the players, the two coaches have been extremely influential in helping Delhi get where they are right now. Both Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly have worked extremely hard and their connect with the team is commendable. They have played a pivotal role in Delhi's wins and quite a lot of credit has to be given to them.

The last factor that makes DC favourites for the play offs is their captain. Though unexperienced, Shreyas Iyer has been phenomenal in the field not only with the bat but with his captaincy. He has gotten most of his decisions right and has been on point with his bowling changes and field placements. He makes a perfect blend of aggression and stability and that has done wonders for his team.
