Delhi Capitals (DC) are placed at the bottom of the IPL 2023 Points Table with just 2 wins from 7 matches. They have more things to worry about than qualifying for the playoffs from this stage of the tournament. As per a report, one of the DC players recently misbehaved with a woman at a franchise party. After this incident, a new ‘code of conduct’ has been implemented for the players, under which no cricketer will be allowed to bring any acquaintance to his hotel room after 10 pm.
What is the code of conduct for new players in Delhi Capitals?
The players have been told that if they want to entertain their guests after 10 pm, they should do so at the hotel’s restaurant or cafe. It should not be forgotten that players must inform the IPL Team Integrity Officer and team management must present a photo ID in advance. The new rules also state that if players want to leave their hotel to meet someone, they will have to inform the franchise. The new advisory states that if anyone is caught violating the code of conduct, either a fine will be imposed or their contract will be terminated.
WAGS is allowed but with a condition
The Delhi Capitals management has allowed wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of cricketers to travel with the team during the tournament. However, as per the code, the players will have to bear their travel and accommodation expenses. Also, players will have to inform the franchise before joining their family members.
Delhi’s IPL campaign so far
Delhi Capitals made the worst start in the league and lost five matches in a row. They have pulled things back somewhat with two wins in their last two outings. The Capitals finally entered the tournament after defeating Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their last two matches. But they still have a long way to go as far as playoff qualification is concerned. DC is at the bottom of the points table. SRH also have the same number of wins in 7 matches but their NRR is slightly better than DC.
The David Warne-led side play SRH again in the return game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium with an aim to continue their winning run in the tournament. DC will have to aim for a win in every match from here on to seal a place in the playoffs.
