New Delhi: Delhi Capitals’ performance in IPL 2021 was excellent, even though this team could not win the trophy, but Rishabh Pant’s army secured the top position in the points table during the league stage.
Delhi will retain these 3 players!
Delhi Capitals has missed out on winning the IPL title for the last two times, now in view of next year’s mega auction, the franchise will try to retain players who can get them the trophy for the first time. Let’s have a look at those 3 players whom the Delhi team would like to retain at any cost.
1. Rishabh Pant
There is no doubt that the current captain Rishabh Pant would like to retain the Delhi Capitals at any cost, because after the injury of Shreyas Iyer, Pant took the team to the playoffs. He has proved to be not only a great leader, but also a great wicketkeeping option for Delhi. He is known to give strength in a middle order. He has scored 419 runs from 34.91 in 16 matches of IPL 2021.
2. Shreyas Iyer
Shreyas Iyer is the second player that his franchise would like to retain at any cost, as he is an important member of the team and in 2020, he led Delhi Capitals to the final for the first time under his captaincy. After returning from injury, Iyer batted well in difficult times in many matches. He scored 175 runs in 8 games at an average of 35.
3. Kagiso Rabada
Delhi Capitals would like to retain at least one foreign player, with South African bowler Kagiso Rabada leading the race. This dashing pace bowler is considered a specialist in death overs. He has taken 15 wickets in 15 matches of IPL 2021 at an average of 30.40 and an economy rate of 8.14. During this his best bowling figure was 3/36. Rabada had taken 30 wickets in 17 matches in the 2020 season and was entitled to the Purple Cap.
Shikhar Dhawan’s leaf will be cut?
Shikhar Dhawan, opening for Delhi Capitals, scored 587 runs in 16 matches of IPL 2021 at an average of 39.13, but in the second phase, there was a tremendous decline in his performance. Gabbar could have bagged the Orange Cap, but he failed to play big innings in the last few matches. In such a situation, the Delhi franchise would like to find his long term option and can release Dhawan.
