Delhi Capitals (DC) came so near but were yet so far from a Playoff berth in the IPL 2022. With the 2023 IPL auction slated for December 23, the DC team management would be looking to fill in the spots which they think were left vacant in the last season. Which are the three players the team could target to boast their squad? Here are the three picks who might fit in the Delhi Capitals squad for IPL 2023.
1. Sikandar Raza
Sikandar Raza’s prowess as a T20 all-rounder is known by one and all. Delhi Capitals’ coach Ricky Ponting is also a huge fan of Sikandar Raza’s abilities and also has lauded him during the T20 World Cup 2022. Raza could be a crucial figure with both bat and ball in any T20 team in the world and Delhi Capitals might look to get him into their side to strengthen their all-round department.
2. Narayan Jagadeesan
Tamil Nadu wicket-keeper batter Narayan Jagadeesan is on cloud 9 after scoring the highest individual score in men’s List A cricket by hammering 277 off 141 balls against Arunachal Pradesh in the Vijay Hazare Trophy recently. With Delhi only having a solitary designated wicket-keeper in the form of skipper Rishabh Pant, DC will surely look to hire the services of Narayan Jagadeesan at the 2023 IPL Auction.
3. David Wiese
Well, this name might surprise one and all, but if the team management is on a look out for someone close to Shardul Thakur’s abilities, David Wiese could be the one to fit in the Delhi Capitals squad 2023. Delhi has a purse remaining of Rs 19.45 Crore which may abide them to going for the likes of Cameron Green, Ben Stokes, or Sam Curran who are expected to break the banks at the auction. Therefore, an all-rounder like David Wiese could be a smart buy for DC at the IPL Auction 2023.
