Delhi Capitals Full Squad: Complete List of DC Players After IPL Auction 2023

One of the most exciting franchises in recent times, Delhi Capitals further strengthened their quad making some smart buys in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 auction. The Rishabh Pant-led team bought uncapped India bowlers Mukesh Kumar (Rs 5.50 crore), Phil Salt (Rs 2 crore), Ishant Sharma (Rs 50 lakh) in the auction. Delhi Capitals is another franchise that showed a lot of common sense in their choices. Mukesh Kumar was a net bowler with the franchise last season and is now playing regularly for India A. With his ability to pitch the ball, he can be a good powerplay option during the later stages of the tournament.

But the bargain was definitely Englishman Phil Salt, who tore apart the Pakistani bowlers during the T20I series a few weeks before the T20 World Cup in Australia. For Rs 2 crore, it couldn’t have been better. Ishant Sharma at base price is not a bad bargain either as his experience can come in handy at times.

Towards the end of the auction, Delhi also included Riley Rosso of South Africa. With him and Manish Pandey in the side, the franchise has added a lot of steel to their fragile middle-order.
