TATA IPL 2023: 4 Players Delhi Capitals (DC) Might Target In IPL 2023 Auction. Delhi Capitals, one of the semi-finalists of VIVO IPL 2021 prior to the IPL 2022 mega auction, retained 4 key players. They buy the explosive David Warner for just 6.25 crores in the auction. Other noticeable buys were Mitchell Marsh for 6.5 crores and Shardul Thakur for 10.75 crores.
Delhi Capitals, have been inconsistent so far in TATA IPL 2022. To reach the playoff stage of the ongoing tournament, the Rishabh Pant led team will have to win their remaining matches and hope that other teams’ performance, such as RCB and PKBS, does not overshine them. Although DC’s faith in the ongoing IPL 2022 is not in their own hands, still they have already started preparations for the upcoming IPL 2023 auction. Let us look at 4 players Delhi Capitals might look to purchase in the upcoming IPL 2023 auction.
4 Players Delhi Capitals (DC) Might Target In IPL 2023 Auction
RASSIE VAN DER DUSSEN
Rassie van der Dussen, the current member of Rajasthan Royals, has not got the opportunity to play. He is a very explosive batsman who can take the attack to the opposition. Delhi Capitals have not been able to get the finishing touch to the innings. Rishabh Pant has been below average this season.
Rajasthan Royals will most likely release Rassie Van der Dussen ahead Of IPL 2023 auction. Delhi Capitals might fancy their chances to buy this South African player in such a situation.
Delhi Capitals have lacked variety in their bowling attack. They have a dearth of options as far in terms of left-handed bowlers. Kartik Tyagi is regarded as one of the rising stars of Indian Cricket. However, his current franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad has not been able to use him efficiently, as they have a pool of other Indian bowlers. As a result, most likely, SRH would release Kartik Tyagi. Delhi would surely look to target him in the upcoming IPL 2023 auction.
Ben Cutting was listed for a base price of 75 lakhs, but he went unsold in the IPL 2022 mega auction. He is a very handy player who can play the role of a finisher for DC. His strike rate of close to 170 is among the best in the IPL.

Ben Cutting can also provide the 5th bowler option for Delhi Capitals. His deceptive slower deliveries can prove to be very handy on the slow wickets in India. Delhi Capitals will look to rope in a few quality all-rounders, and Ben Cutting can be a good option for them in IPL 2023 auction.
Kane Richardson is one of the highly respected players in the T20 format. Although the national team has sidelined him for some time, he is still preferred in club cricket across the globe. Kane Richardson went unsold in the IPL 2022 mega auction, as his base price of 1.5 cr was something the IPL franchises refused to entertain.
Kane is a very good death bowler who can hit the deck very hard. His off-cutter and change-up deliveries are also very effective. Apart from Anrich Nortje, DC lack other good foreign bowlers. Kane Richardson can fulfill this need for them in IPL 2023 auction.
