Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting along with a few players including senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, all-rounder Axar Patel, batsman Shimron Hetmyer and pacer Chris Woakes, checked in to their team hotel in Mumbai on Monday ahead of the 14th edition of the IPL, starting next month.

 

Wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant also arrived at the team hotel along with England's Sam Billings and Tom Curran.

Spinners Ashwin and Axar performed well with the ball in the four-Test series against England at home, picking up 32 and 27 wickets respectively.

With regular skipper Shreyas Iyer ruled out of the entire IPL because of injury sustained during the first ODI against England recently, Ashwin is seen as one of the candidates to lead the team along with Rishabh Pant, Steve Smith and Shikhar Dhawan.
