Carlos Brathwaite says “They don’t have the title-winning pedigree at the moment” on Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021. Brathwaite termed Delhi Capitals as favorites. Also, to make it to the finals but is unsure about their caliber. It is to secure their first Indian Premier League title. DC only has a single IPL finals appearance to their name. Which came in the previous season in the UAE. DC has made a commanding start to the second leg. It is following a comfortable win over bottom-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad. They came into the UAE as league leaders. They are now giving CSK a run for their money in the chase for the top spot.
Under Pant’s leadership, the franchise has only tasted defeat twice. Despite the team’s impressive IPL 2021 campaign. Carlos Braithwaite feels that despite their rise over the course of the last couple of years. They still lack the title-winning pedigree.
“Delhi Capitals are favorites for the final, not sure about the title as they don’t have the title-winning pedigree at the moment,” Carlos Brathwaite said.
Delhi Capitals are an even more intimidating gear in the second leg with the returns of Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, and Amit Mishra. They are back among their ranks.
Moreover, they are well composed to make it to the playoffs. They could potentially seal a top 2 finish. If they manage to avoid any hiccups towards the end. Sanjay Manjrekar believes DC is the runaway favorite to win IPL 2021.
“Yes, Delhi Capitals are favorites to win the title. Very much so,” Manjrekar said.

However, Marcus Stoinis is a doubt for the fixture. Against Rajasthan Royals after injuring his hamstring in the contest against SRH. Stoinins pulled his hamstring while bowling the seventh delivery of his over.
“Yes, Stoinis will definitely be a huge miss for DC. Not only with the ball but also with the bat, in the field, and his overall character and persona around the team,” Carlos Brathwaite added.
