Ahead of the 2018 IPL, 50% of the franchise ownership was transferred to the JSW Group. In December 2018, the team changed its name from the Delhi Daredevils to the Delhi Capitals. Giving the rationale behind the change of the team's name, co-owner and chairman Parth Jindal said, "Delhi is the power centre of the country, it is the capital, therefore the name Delhi Capitals." co-owner Kiran Kumar Grandhi said, "The new name symbolizes Delhi’s identity and just like the city, we are aiming to be the centre of all action going forward."
The Delhi Capitals are the only current team to have never appeared in an Indian Premier League final, and, prior to the current season, last qualified for the IPL playoffs in 2012. The leading run-scorer for the Capitals is Virender Sehwag, while the leading wicket-taker is Amit Mishra.
Indian Premier League is a cricket tournament organized by the Board of control for cricket in India (BCCI) and backed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for the inaugural tournament held in April–June 2008, the BCCI had finalized a list of eight teams who will be participating in the tournament. The teams representing 8 different cities of India, including Delhi, were put up on auction in Mumbai on 20 February 2008 and the Delhi team was successfully bid for by the property development company GMR Group, who paid US$84 million for it.
In March 2018, GMR sold a 50% stake in Delhi Daredevils to JSW Sports for ₹550 crore (US$80 million).
2008 IPL seasonEdit
Delhi Daredevils had a good run in the inaugural edition of the IPL. They won the initial two matches against Rajasthan Royals & Deccan Chargers and after losing a match to King XI Punjab, won the next two matches against Royal Challengers Bangalore & Chennai Super Kings.
How ever then they slumped to defeat in straight four matches followed by a win. But they recovered after one more loss to win three matches on a trot to finish in the final four.
They lost to eventual champions Rajasthan Royals in the semi final.
2009 IPL seasonEdit
The Daredevils dominated for much of the 2009 IPL season under the captaincy of former India opener and Delhi-native Gautam Gambhir, finishing at the top of the table. The likes of former India opener and triple-Centurion Sehwag and Gambhir both had developed greatly since the prior season and set up many large totals for the Daredevils, with South Africa Power Hitter and Part-time Keeper AB de Villiers hitting one of only two centuries in the 2009 IPL (the other was made by Indian Young Batsman Manish Pandey), which was held in South Africa. The bowling team, which in 2008 was composed mainly of players Kiwi spin pro Daniel Vettori, India senior spinner Amit Mishra, Pradeep Sangwan, and Former India fast bowler Ashish Nehra, was bolstered by the off-season signing of Dirk Nannes from Australia, which created a bowling lineup that was strong. The batting of the Daredevils was one of the strongest in the tournament, featuring Sehwag, Gambhir, power hitter Dilshan, AB de Villiers, and Ranji veteran Manoj Tiwari. The Daredevils consisted of new and uncapped players like Australia Captain Aaron Finch and Australia pace-allrounder Glenn Maxwell, who went on to become very successful in T20 circuits.
However, despite dominating for the regular season, the Daredevils crumbled in the semi-final under a fierce batting assault by Aussie keeper Adam Gilchrist, who hit the joint fifth fastest fifty in IPL history (just 17 balls). Nannes in particular, who was again picked over Aussie pacer McGrath, was punished by Keeper Gilchrist and later by Aussie opening All-rounder Andrew Symonds. The disappointing semi-final meant Delhi did not contest the final of the 2009 IPL season despite having the best record in the league stages. However, Delhi managed to qualify for the now-defunct 2009 Champions League Twenty20 because of their performance in group stage.
2012 IPL seasonEdit
Due to the disbanding of Kochi Tuskers Kerala, each team played the remaining eight teams twice, once at home and once away. Therefore, each team played an extended season of 16 matches.
Delhi were table toppers again in 2012.The South African Cricketer Morne Morkel of Delhi was the highest wicket taker of the tournament. The Daredevils came third in the tournament and qualified for the second time in the now-defunct Champions League Twenty20.
Iconic Australian pace bowler Glenn McGrath expressed disappointment over not being picked to play any match during the whole season, and has since then stopped playing for Delhi.
In the IPL season of 2012, a new Delhi Daredevils side was seen after a poor 2011 season where they finished last. They came back strongly having purchased players the likes of Afro-English Batting Great Kevin Pietersen, Lanka Batsman Mahela Jayawardene and Kiwi Batsman Ross Taylor. They stood first in the Pool Table with the Kolkata Knight Riders at second place, Mumbai Indians coming third and the Defending Champions Chennai Super Kings securing the fourth spot, consequently also qualifying for the now-defunct Champions League Twenty20 in 2012 held in South Africa.
Former Lanka Skipper and Sri Lanka Power Hitter Mahela Jayawardane was appointed as the new captain of the Delhi Daredevils after India Opener and Local Boy Triple-centurionVirender Sehwag stepped down from captaincy during the 2012 season of the Champions League Twenty20.
2013 IPL seasonEdit
The Delhi Daredevils lost all first six matches of IPL 2013 and won their first match in seven games against the Mumbai Indians. Former India Opener and Local Boy Triple-centurion Virender Sehwag and Sri Lanka Skipper Mahela Jayawardene's partnership led to an inevitable win against the Mumbai Indians in which they scored 161 runs. Sehwag was the Man of the Match for his brilliant innings of 95* off 57 balls. After this match, they faced Kings XI Punjab and lost again. But in their 9th match of the season, against Pune Warriors India, they won, putting them in 8th place in the points table. They defeated Defending Champions Kolkata Knight Riders in their 10th Match by 7 wickets but failed to advance to 7th place due to their net run-rate. In their next match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Daredevils were bowled out for just 80, which was the lowest total in Delhi's IPL record, giving the Sunrisers a comfortable win. In their match against Rajasthan Royals, they scored 154 thanks to new recruit Ben Rohrer's brilliant half-century, however that effort was in vain as Rajasthan chased the total down easily with only one wicket falling. This loss for the Daredevils officially eliminated them from the 2013 season.
In their next match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi managed to contain the Royal Challengers who were 106 in 16.0 overs, but Bangalore scored 77 in their last four overs and reached a total of 183, thanks to a well-made 99 by RCB Skipper and Power Hitter Virat Kohli. Nonetheless, the Daredevils fought hard but closely lost the match by just 4 runs. The Delhi Daredevils next played the dominant Chennai Super Kings side who batted first and posted 168. Delhi failed to gain momentum throughout the match and eventually lost by 33 runs. The following match was against Kings XI Punjab who defeated them again, this time by 7 runs, as they failed to chase 172. Their final game was against Pune Warriors India. Delhi bowled first and the Pune Warriors posted a total of 171. In the second innings, Delhi started well maintaining the required run rate, but began losing quick wickets after the 10th over. They couldn't chase the target and lost by 38 runs finishing last in the league table. Despite having an unforgiving season, a few big names were added to the support staff as the season progressed. The legendary Windies Batsman Sir Vivian Richards was named as their new brand ambassador, former England spinner Jeremy Snape was added to the support staff and renowned former Pakistan spinner Mushtaq Ahmed was named as their new spin bowling coach.
2014 IPL seasonEdit
Ahead of the IPL 2014 auction,on 10th January 2014 the Delhi Daredevils announced that they will not retain any players from their current squad for season 7. With no players retained, the team would have the most 'right-to-match' cards among all the franchises at the auction: i.e., three. They will also have their full purse of Rs 600 million (approx US$9.6) to spend at the auction. The Delhi Daredevils experienced another poor season in 2014. They lost their first match, against Royal Challengers Bangalore, however they won their next match against Defending Champions Kolkata Knight Riders. This was followed by a heavy loss against the Then Two-time Champions Chennai Super Kings and a nail-bitingly close match which resulted in a disappointing loss against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Delhi Daredevils won their next match against the inspired Mumbai Indians having restricted Mumbai to 125. Later, when the tournament shifted from the makeshift venue United Arab Emirates to India, Delhi lost their next nine matches. The Delhi Daredevils won only two out of their 14 matches, both of which took place in the adopted venue UAE. Despite their poor performance, South Africa All-rounder JP Duminy, the team captain, had a relatively good season overall scoring 410 runs from 14 matches at an average of 51.25 and was the tournament's eighth highest run-scorer. The Delhi Daredevils once again had a disappointing season finishing last.
