IPL 2024: Four Players Delhi Capitals (DC) Can Target In The Auction. Like the previous seasons, IPL 2023 witnessed some of the most lip-smacking contests. The playoffs produced some of the best moments while Chennai Super Kings won the fifth IPL title under the captaincy MS Dhoni. One team that didn’t perform to its expectations was the Delhi Capitals. The team was without skipper Rishabh Pant who couldn’t play due to an accident he suffered last year.

Apart from this, the team couldn’t utilize the options well and combinations as they finished 9th in the points table in the IPL 2023. Under the captaincy of David Warner, Delhi Capitals, looked below par in all departments but the team management will hope for a strong comeback next season.

The franchise owners have begun preparations for the next season and they might look to target some of the key players. In this piece, we will discuss players whom Delhi Capitals can target in IPL 2024 auction. The players mentioned in the list are all proven game-changers who can win games single-handedly.

1 Jason Roy

The England limited-overs & T20I opener was bought for a sum of INR 2.8 crores by Kolkata Knight Riders during the 2023 season. The 33-year-old scored 285 runs in 8 IPL games during the 2023 season with a strike rate of 151.60. Roy can provide acceleration during the powerplay and can find the gaps through aerial shots.

Undoubtedly one of the vital contributors with the bat as well as with the ball, Moeen can change the outcome of a game single-handedly. The 36-year-old possesses variety as an off-spinner. The England all-rounder can outsmart the batsmen with his turn, flight, and topspin.

Moeen was bought by Chennai Super Kings for a sum of INR 8 crores for the 2023 season. The left-hander is a healthy contributor with the bat lower down the order and he can play the big shots when needed. He took 9 wickets during the 2023 season with best figures of 4/26 in 15 IPL games. He scored 124 runs with a strike rate of 136.26 during the 2023 season.

3 Kagiso Rabada

The South African pacer can topple any batting lineup on his day with his pace, swing, and clever movements. The 28-year-old was bought for a sum of INR 9.25 crore by Punjab Kings during the 2022 auction. The pacer took 7 wickets in 6 IPL games during the 2023 season with best figures of 2/34.

Rabada has experience bowling in different situations as he can be penetrative during the death overs. He has taken 106 wickets in 69 IPL games so far in his career. Delhi Capitals will look to strengthen the pace department by adding him.

4 Dilshan Madushanka

The 23-year-old wasn’t picked by any team during the 2023 IPL auctions but Delhi Capitals might take a chance with the left-arm Sri Lankan pacer. Madushanka bowled decently in last year’s Asia Cup in Abu Dhabi. Delhi Capitals might look to add heft in the pace department.

Madushanka’s base price was INR 50 lakhs in this season’s auctions. The pacer can surprise the batters with his speed while he can be difficult to negotiate with the new ball due to his late swing. Delhi Capitals might try to target the young pacer.
