This sees them currently occupying the sixth spot in the points table, with a rather disappointing run rate of -0.442. Consistency has proven elusive for the Capitals, posing as a significant challenge throughout their campaign. Particularly, the bowling department, spearheaded by Anrich Nortje, has faltered, failing to live up to expectations. Now, their path to the playoffs is laden with obstacles, as they must secure victories in all their remaining fixtures while also relying on favourable outcomes from other teams.

Prithvi Shaw
Jake Fraser-McGurk
Shai Hope
Tristan Stubbs
Rishabh Pant
Sumit Kumar
Abhishek Porel
Axar Patel
Kuldeep Yadav
Anrich Nortje
Khaleel Ahmed

In a formidable lineup, Shaw spearheads the batting attack with his explosive stroke play, setting the tempo for the team’s innings. Fraser-McGurk’s composed presence brings stability to the middle order, alongside the consistent performances of Hope. Stubbs, a dynamic all-rounder, enhances the team’s versatility with his ability to contribute with both bat and ball.
Pant’s lightning-fast glovework behind the stumps is matched only by his powerful hitting when at the crease. Sumit’s mature approach with the bat adds depth to the batting lineup, while Porel’s all-round skills provide valuable contributions in crucial moments.
In the bowling department, Axar’s crafty spin and Kuldeep’s wrist spin offer essential variety and trickery to the attack. Nortje’s express pace poses a constant threat to opposition batters, while Khaleel’s swing bowling adds finesse and completes the formidable bowling lineup.
