Delhi Capitals

Squad strength: 25
Players bought in auction: 10
Purse at the end of the auction: INR. 7.7 Crore
Having retained 14 players and acquiring Shikhar Dhawan during the transfer window, Delhi’s auction outing was all about filling the gaps. They had let go of overseas names like Glenn Maxwell, Jason Roy and Liam Plunkett, and to make up for it they roped in solid options like Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford and Colin Ingram, which blends well with the young Indian names in the set up.
Ishant Sharma’s presence also provides an experienced lending hand to the pace department, which has talented domestic pacers like Nathu Singh and Bandaru Ayyappa along with big overseas names like Kagiso Rabada and Trent Boult. Overall, a balanced squad which should hold Delhi in good stead to set their poor record in the IPL straight.
