DC in IPL 2023: Top 5 fast bowlers in Delhi Capitals

The Indian Premier League is set to gear up for its 16th season but the search for trophy still continues as Delhi Capitals hope to get better after a tough loss last year.

Noticeably, after the franchise owners decided to change the team’s name from Delhi Daredevils to Delhi Capitals, the team surprisingly showed improvement but is that enough?


After their regular skipper Rishabh Pant’s horrific accident, which keeps him away from cricket for at least a year or two, the franchise owners have put their faith on Australian veteran David Warner and more fortunately, have got back Dada a.k.a Sourav Ganguly’s guidance.

The bowling unit of Delhi Capitals seemed weak since the auctions ended and the fans hope that it will be significantly improved before the season starts. Let’s take a look at the Top 5 best bowlers in DC –

Anrich Nortje – With his slashing speed, the Proteas pacer is predicted to trouble the batters in the IPL.

“Anrich Nortje – fit, available and raring to go. Then Mustafizur Rahman, Lungi Ngidi, Chetan Sakariya, Khaleel Ahmed, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Mukesh Kumar and Ishant Sharma. They also have Pravin Dubey, Vicky Ostwal and Aman Khan. This team will not have a problem of bowlers,” Aakash Chopra said.

Khaeel Ahmed – In IPL 2022, Ahmed caused a lot of problems for the batters with his pace and ability to swing the new ball. Khaleel Ahmed has been a successful wicket-taker. In just 34 games, the left-arm fast bowler has taken 48 wickets for an average of 8.04. He last competed on the international stage in November of 2019 and hasn’t even been chosen for India’s reserve squads for some games.

Bangladeshi pacer Mustafizur Rahman is one of a kind bowler, who has a lot of potential. For Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Mustafizur Rahman dominated the season in the 2016 Indian Premier competition (IPL), establishing himself in the most intense and competitive T20 competition in the world. Rahman was bought by Delhi Capitals (DC) at his base price of Rs. 2 crores during the IPL 2022 mega-auctions.

Lungi Ngidi’s growth as an all-format pacer has been amazing. The big fast bowler has managed to shine out with his pace in a strong South African pace attack. For the Paarl Royals in the SA20 competition, Ngidi took 11 wickets at a fantastic economy rate of 7.16. Additionally, he had a standout 2022 in T20Is, delivering 22 kills in 13 games at an economy rate of 8.84 and two four-fers.

Mukesh outbid Bengal’s most well-known cricketer, Sourav Ganguly, to become the most expensive cricketer in the sale. Delhi Capitals paid 5 crore 50 lakh rupees to acquire him. He outperformed Ganguly as well. Ganguly made the most money in the IPL, totaling Rs. 4 crore 37 lakh. Mukesh’s father, a resident of Gopalganj, wanted him to join the Central Reserve Police Force. Mukesh impressed Waqar Younis, the legendary pacer of the Pakistan cricket team.
