It is a very balanced team. Akash Chaupra said that his greatest strength is his Indian origin. They have Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma. He also has Amit Mishra. It has a splendid Indian origin. Some of these are match winners and players who contribute consistently. He said that the bowling attack of Delhi Capitals is another plus point for the team. It has depth with Overseas and Indian seam ganzabaks.
