Delhi Capitals, which was known as Delhi Daredevils till the 2018 season, finished on the top spot in IPL 2021’s first half. Delhi Capitals is one of the three franchises among the current teams that have never won any IPL title.
However, out of 14 seasons, Delhi Capitals has managed to reach the playoffs 5 times. The closest they went near the title was in IPL 2020 when the Shreyas Iyer-led franchise reached the final for the first time but unfortunately ended as runners-up.

Especially in the last few auctions, the owners have managed to grab many good deals during the auction.
However, in the past seasons, there were few singings by the franchise that did not yield good results. Here we take a look at the 5 worst signings by Delhi Capitals in IPL history.
5 Worst Signings By Delhi Capitals (DC) In IPL History
Colin Ingram (IPL 2019)
In IPL 2019 auction, Delhi Capitals bought South African batsman Colin Ingram for Rs. 6.40 crores. However, the left-handed batsman largely failed to make an impact with his bat in the season.
Ingram scored 184 runs in 12 innings at a mere average of 18.40. His strike rate of 119+ was also not quite impressive for the franchise. In spite of playing 12 matches, he failed to hit a century in any match with the highest score being 47.
