Use trash can icon for delete and "X" icon for cancel.

Hi Satish, It is important to understand the context of use before visualizing the icons...

Shivanand's suggesstions of trashcan and X can lead to more questions because the context and what is possible is not clear for e.g. Trash icon can mean that undo is possible... 'X' icon somehow gives me a picture of a delete rather than a cancel, especially becuase i picturize it as a red color X icon. And btw red color for other cultures can mean something else too :)

So the advice is to first articulate the context of use and then go ahead...

After severals A/B testing for our product, delete is good with "-" in conjuncture for adding "+". About the cancel button, my opinion is that nothing beat the word "cancel".
