The 10 franchise solidifies its roster after releasing more players ahead of the IPL’s 16th edition. The Mini Auction has a maximum of 87 slots, allowing 30 international players to participate in the league.

DC’s auction strategy looks like this:

capital of delhi

Remaining wallet:
INR 19.45 crore

Total slots available:
Five

Slots available internationally:

IPL Auction Strategy:
Having released just five players, Capitals looks like an established team before the auction. There is still a hefty sum of Rs 19.45 crore left to tie up five players, with room to target a few Big His names. Some of them could include Ben Stokes, Sam Curran and Jason Holder. But given that the Rishab Pants-led side is stacked with bowling firepower, Delhi could be more aggressively investing in batters hovering in the middle order. The Capitals are also considering a specialist finisher, with Riley Rossoue and Nicolas Pooran emerging as frontrunners for the role. Like most teams, the Capitals also need their captain and wicketkeeper’s pants covered, and they can look to K.S. Bharat, which the franchise purchased at his INR 20 million at a lower price in a previous auction.
