In the IPL 2022 season, the Delhi franchise has brought some big and experienced names like David Warner and Mitchell Marsh.

The franchise gives opportunities to the young talent but the Delhi boys are still waiting for their first IPL title. They got the chance to lift the title for the first time in the IPL 2020 season but Mumbai Indians ruined their dream by defeating DC by 5 wickets.
