“The Delhi Capitals may need a back-up for Marcus Stoinis, an all rounder who can bat down the order, play the big shots and bowl a little. It is better if he can bowl fast but spin will also do” quoted by Chopra.
“So, it could be Cameron Green, Moises Henriques, Chris Morris or Shivam Dube. I don’t see any other player of Stoinis’ ability coming in the auction. Shakib doesn’t fit in this team as he is a top-order batsman” added by Chopra.

“They have Hetmyer in the middle order. They can look for another big hitter. Glenn Maxwell might just be an option as they might go after him. Ricky Ponting likes this player a lot and I won’t be surprised if he lifts the paddle at least once for him. They might think about him because they need a finisher” stated by Aakash Chopra.
