Delhi Capitals (DC) have been the best team of IPL 2020 so far. They have looked really comfortable and have won five out of six matches. Their strength has been their bowling. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have done a fantastic job for them in the initial overs as well as the death overs.

Rabada, in particular, has been sensational; there hasn’t been even one moment where he has looked clueless. He is the leading wicket-taker of IPL 2020 as well. Their spin department is also sorted as the likes of Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel and Amit Mishra have done a commendable job. All the three spinners have been really impressive in the limited opportunities given to them so far.

Their batting has looked threatening too, with the likes of  Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw hitting the big shots at will. Their MVP, until now, as well as one of the best performers of IPL 2020 so far has been Marcus Stoinis though. He has played the role of a finisher as well as the fifth bolwer to utmost perfection.
