Three players in the contention list for Delhi Capitals ahead of IPL-2021 auction


The Team Delhi Capitals has seen in new heights as the team finally played their maiden IPL final in the last 12years of history and it is too under Shreyas Iyer’s captaincy. This team is fully filled up with youngsters who are raising the bars against experienced teams. They lost to Mumbai Indians in the final of IPL-2020.

It can also be said team has even lost some of players due to injury like Amit Mishra and Ishant Sharma in the mid season. They seemed to be good build up team in IPL-2020 but some areas were still lacking where Delhi should definitely look out. And for this they will march towards mini auction and keep bidding on those players who can fill those loopholes.

There are three main players where Delhi Capitals could bid:

1] Jason Roy

In the concluded season, the biggest disadvantage team was leading was a better opener as team was struggling for good opening combination. Due to bad performance from Prithvi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane made them out of the spot so there wasn’t no one to help Shikhar Dhawan for opening. Thus makes Marcus Stoinis to open. So in the coming auction team should go for Jason Roy  who is terrific opener and can give the best for the team what he used to be.

His carnage form can help Delhi to fill the opening loophole.

2] Carlos Brathwaite

Delhi Capitals also need a hard hitter in the bottom line who can provide more runs at the end. Despite of having Shimron Hetymer, franchise was lacked more in the middle order. So if having a back up like Carlos Brathwaite in the squad, Delhi Capitals will look more prominent as he can contribute with both bat and ball for the team.

3] KS Bharat

A back up wicket keeper is must for team and KS Bharat can fill that space. In the concluded edition, Alex Carey couldn’t play upto the mark so an Indian opener can fill space if Rishabh isn’t there so team combination will also not affect.
