The Delhi Capitals or the then-Delhi Daredevils have been a crucial part of the Indian Premier League since the tournament's inception in 2008. The Delhi-based franchise had a few great seasons in the early days of the IPL but hit a lean patch from 2011 to 2018, making only one playoff appearance in 2012.

Then in December 2018, the franchise ditched the Daredevils named and rebranded their team as the Delhi Capitals. The change led to better results as the team made three playoffs in the next five years. But despite having some of the best players in the world, DC has made just one final appearance in tournament history. Looking back at the team's 17-year history, let's look at Delhi Capitals' all-time IPL XI.
