The IPL had to move out of India during the increasing cases of the coronavirus and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chose the UAE as the host for this year’s tournament. The Delhi-based franchise took to Twitter to announce the arrival of their star players in Mumbai. Delhi Capitals posted a picture of the opener waving at the camera.

Delhi finished third on the points table in the last edition of the IPL and they have added more experience to their squad for this season. Delhi also bought the services of the veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and the Indian Test specialist, Ajinkya Rahane during the IPL 2020 auction last year during the trade window.ย
