In the first two seasons of the IPL, Delhi Capitals made it to the semifinals and failed to advance to the final on both the occasions. In 2010, they finished at the fifth spot before finishing at the 10th spot in the 10-team competition in 2011.

In 2012, the Delhi-based outfit qualified for the final once again but failed to advance ahead. It was followed by six consecutive seasons without any playoffs appearance as they constantly finished in the bottom half of the points table. In 2019, Delhi Capitals finally ended their long wait to make it to the playoffs before advancing to the final in 2020. In 2021 too, they made it to the playoffs. However, in the last two seasons, Delhi Capitals have failed to progress to the playoffs.
