Delhi Capitals have become a very strong opponent in the IPL from the past few seasons.
The franchise has gone from strength to strength and had made it to the finals of the tournament in 2020.
They were ably led by Shreyas Iyer in 2019 and 2020. In 2021, Rishabh Pant took over as captain after Iyer suffered from a shoulder dislocation. Pant also led the team well and took them to the playoffs last year.
The fortunes of the Delhi Capitals took a turn for the better when Ricky Ponting joined the team as head coach.
The Capitals have retained Rishabh Pant, Anrich Nortje, Axar Patel and Prithvi Shaw for this year’s IPL.
They had to let go of Kagiso Rabada. He will now be auctioned off in the Mega Auctions.
There are other bowlers as well whom the Delhi Capitals would be happy to have in their roster. Let’s have a look at which of these bowlers the Capitals would aim for.
He has been Delhi Capitals’ mainstay in the bowling department along with fellow South African Anrich Nortje.
He took 30 wickets at an average of 18.27 in just 17 matches in the 2020 edition but was unable to repeat the same feat last year.
But, nonetheless, Delhi would bid strongly for him at the Mega Auctions.
Boult was a part of the Delhi set-up till 2019 and was then bought by the Mumbai Indians in the 2020 auction.
He performed brilliantly for Mumbai and took many wickets for the franchise.
So, Delhi based upon Boult’s previous performances with the ball will like to have him back into their side. Boult will also form a deadly pair with Anrich Nortje and they both will create havoc for the other teams.
Shami, despite having a good outing with the ball for the Punjab Kings last season, was not retained by the franchise.
He impressed one and all with his bowling in the death overs.
Thus, Shami will prove beneficial for any side in the upcoming edition of the IPL. All franchises will try to bid heavily for him and Delhi too will try to purchase him for themselves.
