TATA IPL 2022: Delhi Capitals’ x-factor players for playoffs

Delhi Capitals suffered a huge defeat against CSK on Sunday which make them stay at 5th position in the points table.


Delhi Capitals are on the 5th position in the points table of the IPL 2022. Rishabh Pant’s men have 10 points in the 11 matches they played this season. They are currently in the middle of the sea as their way to playoffs looks a bit difficult after they faced a huge defeat against defending champions Chennai Super Kings on Sunday. Delhi will have to win all their remaining games to make it to the playoffs of IPL 2022. There are some players who can prove to be crucial in Delhi’s road to playoffs and in the playoffs as well.

Delhi Capitals’ x-factor players for playoffs (IPL 2022): 

1. David Warner: Former SRH batter is really an x-factor player for Delhi Capitals as since he has joined the team he has scored some important runs for them. In the 8 matches he played this season, he scored 313 runs. He missed some of the starting games for Delhi Capitals but since he came back he is been the regular starter for them. Former SRH captain has scored lot of runs for them and also has won ‘Orange Cap’ with them so this makes him one of the x-factor players of Delhi Capitals this season.

2. Rovman Powell: The middle-order explosive batter is one of the important players for the Delhi Capitals this year. Powell has finished some of the games for them and made them cross the victory line. Rovman Powell’s power-hitting is really a need for Delhi Capitals this season if they want to qualify for playoffs or win their maiden title. Powell and Warner made a huge partnership in the match against SRH. They took the score beyond 200 and Rovman himself scored a blistering half century. Despite missing some of the starting games he has been one of the key players for Delhi Capitals.

3. Kuldeep Yadav: The Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav is also important for Delhi Capitals as he has taken so many wickets this season. Kuldeep has been named ‘Man of the Match’ four times this season. He has 18 wickets this season so far and is placed at the fourth position in the ‘Purple cap’ list.
