Here’s a list of IPL players who can bring stability to the Delhi Capitals

 

Mathew Wade

The Australian wicket-keeper can be a good pick for the Delhi Capitals if they fail to buy Alex Carey and Jason Roy (released players). The latter is the highest run of the BBL this season. Mathew Wade can play a crucial role as a backup opener for the Delhi Capitals camp. He can also play in the middle-order.

 

Moeen Ali

The England all-round can be good bench strength for Delhi Capitals. He has the ability to contribute in both departments. Ali, who has been left out of Royal Challengers Bangalore, is unlikely to fetch his previous IPL salary (Rs 1.7 crore).

 

Liton Das

The Bangladesh opener is a good enough player in the shortest version of the game. He can be utilized if the top order if Prithvi Shaw fails to do well at the top.

 

Isuru Udana

Udana can be a good bowler for the Shreyas Iyer-led franchise as he can bowl well in the powerplay overs. He was last bought for Rs 5 crore by the Bangalore-based franchise RCB. The Sri Lanka player can be bought at a lower price following his performance for RCB in IPL 2020.

 

Tom Banton

The England opening batsman in the T20I format can produce good numbers if given enough opportunities. KKR during the previous season experimented with his batting order and didn’t give him enough chances to prove himself in his first IPL season.
