Previously known as Delhi Daredevils, the newly named Delhi Capitals is one of the original teams of the IPL franchise. Playing on the field since 2008, theteam has had a very average performance in the T20 format. The team is based out in Delhi and represents the city in the tournament. Parth Jindal of JSW group and Kiran Kumar Gandhi of GMR groups are the joint owners of Delhi Capitals. DC has never reached the finals of IPL tournament and managed qualify for the playoff long ago in 2012. The top run scorer for the team till date continues to be now retired Virendra Sehwag, while the highest number of wickets was taken by Amit Mishra. The team has been on the downfall since the 2013 season and this year the newly appointed and very young captain Shreyash Iyer along with aggressive and known to win almost all matches that he played in, Ricky Ponting, couching the team will try their level best to bring DC out of the misery and towards the win. The team will begin its 2019 journey with a fresh set of players, straightening their middle order and bringing in some big names have been associated with the team for the 2019 season which includes Shikhar Dhawan and Ishant Sharma who would be eyed for a better performance of the team.
Astrological Perception of DC for IPL 2019
Our prominent Astrologers at Astroyogi have done a thorough research on the astrological aspect of the team’s chances in the upcoming season. The predictions have been made emphasising on the facts and figures. Based on the predictions, here is an overview of what could be expected of the team in the IPL 2019.
Based on the first letter of the Delhi Capitals, the ruling sing of the team is Pisces. The 12 th season of IPL will begin from 23 rd March. The ruling star of Pisces is Jupiter and at the beginning of IPL Jupiter will be in the 9 th house. Sun will be ascendant in Pisces at this time favouring the overall tenure of the team in the 12 th season of IPL. The stars indicate good results for the team. However, the timeline during the start of IPL is indicating the presence of Moon of the 8 th house and a crossover of Saturn and Ketu which will cause imbalance in the team.
On the basis of numerology, the letters in the name Delhi Capitals which has been changed from Delhi Daredevils, the name of the franchise for all the previous seasons, produce the number 6 to be their ruling number which is the number of Venus. Based on the short form DC the number identified is 7 which is governed by Ketu and in both the cases the stars are indicating to be in favour of Delhi Capitals with the sole requirement of team consistency.
The team might have a good season overall.
