Delhi Capitals has been a different side altogether since the name change happened in 2018 from Delhi Daredevils. The three tigers in their new logo, symbolising the “hungry to win” attitude of Delhi, have really worked for them as the team has qualified for the Playoffs three times in the last four seasons. They almost made it to their fourth one, too, only to lose it by one game and end up in fifth place in the league’s points table.

The Capitals boast some excellent bowling talents at their disposal in the form of Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mustafizur Rahman. They also comprise young crackerjack talents like Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, and Chetan Sakariya for the 2023 edition.

Having said that, this article will look into the batters who have done well against the Capitals bowlers throughout the tournament’s journey.

Following is the list of the top ten batters who have scored the most runs against Delhi Capitals in IPL.
