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 for 4).[1]

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