In his absence, goaltender-batsman Rishabh Pant has been named DC’s pending captain.

Despite the presence of big stars, the absence of Iyer is still a big blow for Delhi. The talismanic cricketer led them to their first IPL final last year.

During the 2020 IPL, DC finished the league phase in second place. But their fairytale journey was ended by the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the final.
