Competition historyEdit

Delhi have made a strong performance in the Ranji Trophy throughout its history. Three of its five wins came in the 1980s and the remainder were in the late 1970s, a period marked by the dominance of a famous Mumbai team. This formed a golden period for Delhi between 1978 and 1987: it was in the finals for all but one of those years (winning 4, runner up in 4).[1]

Its six appearances in the Irani Trophy showed mixed results, losing to the Rest of India side four times and winning twice.

They have only two titles in limited overs cricket. They won the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2012-13 under Rajat Bhatia. They won the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy under Pradeep Sangwan
