The Delhi Capitals (DC) have been among the Indian Premier League’s most reliable teams over the past few seasons. The mega auction rules required Delhi Capitals to release the majority of their players prior to the IPL 2022. A brand-new team was created by the team owners. However, DC’s new squad was unable to finish among the top four.
Ahead of the IPL 2023 Mini Auction, Delhi is currently looking to release a few players from their roster.
1. Tim Seifert
Tim Seifert had the chance to showcase his talent during David Warner’s absence for the first few games of the season. Seifert didn’t capitalize on his chances, though. The 27-year-old was dropped from the side and not selected again once Warner was back in the mix. DC might decide to part ways with the batter who is out of form.
2. Mustafizur Rahman
Eight wickets were taken by the Bangladeshi left-arm pacer in IPL 2022 game. In the recently finished cash-rich league, Mustafizur maintained an economy rate of 7.63 and an average of 30.50. Against Dinesh Karthik, Mustafizur gave up 28 runs in an over. The Delhi Capitals may release Mustafizur, who was bought for his base price of INR 2 crore, as they have left-arm pacers Khaleel Ahmed and Chetan Sakariya in their domestic ranks.
3. Mandeep Singh
Mandeep Singh was selected by the Delhi franchise at the mega auction in 2022, and this was his best opportunity to make amends. But the Punjab-born player struggled mightily with the bat, managing just 18 runs at a dismal strike rate of 78.26 in the three games he played. The Punjab batter may be released by the Capitals in the run-up to the next auction because he was unable to capitalize on his opportunities.
4. K.S Bharat
Bharat was selected by the Delhi franchise to improve their Indian batting lineup. For the majority of the season, he was unable to crack the starting lineup, though. Bharat’s chances of making the starting XI are extremely slim even in the seasons to come because DC has top-tier batters like Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, and Mitchell Marsh in their top order. As a result, it was visible to watch the think tank release Bharat before the mini auction.
