The mega auction will be held before the 15th season of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL and in such a situation, all the franchises will have to make their team afresh. However, the existing 8 teams and the two new teams will have a chance to retain some players. So far, 8 teams playing IPL have a chance to retain four players, while new teams have a chance to add three players. In such a situation, know which four players Delhi Capitals is going to retain.
Delhi Capitals currently have many players who can be retained, but the franchise can retain wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, opener Prithvi Shaw, all-rounder Axar Patel and fast bowler Enrique Norkhia. If so, then players like former team captain Shreyas Iyer, veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan, spinner R Ashwin and Kagiso Rabada will be included in the auction pool, whom new teams can add before the auction. However, for this also new teams will have to open their wallets.
At the same time, it is also important for you to know about who is going to captain Delhi Capitals in this new season. According to the reports, Rishabh Pant is going to get the command of Delhi Capitals again. Pant took charge of the team in IPL 2021 due to Shreyas Iyer’s injury and under his captaincy, the team qualified while performing well. However, the team could not reach the semi-finals after losing both their qualifier matches. Even after the return of Shreyas Iyer, he was not made the captain and now he will also be out of the written list.
