The Delhi cricket team is one of the first-class cricket teams based in Delhi, run by the Delhi District Cricket Association, that plays in India's domestic competition, the Ranji Trophy. They have won the tournament seven times and have been runners-up eight. Their latest title in 2007-08 came after a long wait of 16 years. The previous win was in the 1991-92 season when they beat Tamil Nadu in the final. The team's home ground is Arun Jaitley Stadium. In the Duleep and Deodhar Trophy, Delhi used to play under the North Zone team.

Competition history

Delhi have made a strong performance in the Ranji Trophy throughout its history. Three of its five wins came in the 1980s and the remainder were in the late 1970s, a period marked by the dominance of a famous Mumbai team. This formed a golden period for Delhi between 1978 and 1987: it was in the finals for all but one of those years (winning 4, runner up in 4).[1]

Its six appearances in the Irani Trophy showed mixed results, losing to the Rest of India side four times and winning twice.

They have only two titles in limited overs cricket. They won the Vijay Hazare Trophy in 2012-13 under Rajat Bhatia. They won the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy under Pradeep Sangwan
