The Delhi Capitals failed to get to the postseason the previous year. The team finished fifth in the points standings with 7 wins and 7 loses in 14 games during the league stage. This time, DC will try to put up a greater display. Here, we discuss three Indian players from the Delhi Capitals (DC) who stand to win the Man of the Match award in the IPL 2023 competition.
3. Axar Patel
Axar Patel is the first Indian participant in IPL 2023 who plays for the Delhi Capitals and has a shot at taking home the trophy. The Indian all-rounder scored 182 runs in 10 innings last year with a strike rate of 151 or higher. Because he was unbeaten in six of his 10 innings, he had a high strike rate of 45.50.
The left-arm spinner, who played in 13 games, had an astounding economy rate of 7.46 and claimed 6 wickets. Patel is now in fantastic shape and has excelled for the Indian team over the past few months.
