The Delhi Capitals made their first-ever IPL final after beating the Sunrisers Hyderabad by 17 runs in Qualifier 2 on Sunday. DC will now go up against defending champions Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2020 summit clash in Dubai on Tuesday.
The Delhi-based franchise was one of only two teams to have made the knockouts in the first 2 years of the IPL. But they made the cut in only 3 of the next 11 editions, including a barren run from 2013 to 2018.
DC have now become the last of the 8 original franchises to qualify for an IPL final. And Shreyas Iyer would know a win tonight would not only make DC the newest IPL champion, but he would also become the youngest captain ever to win the coveted trophy.
We now take a look at some of the key stats of the Delhi Capitals in the knockout stages of the IPL.
