IPL 2021 auction: Steve Smith sold to DC for Rs 2.2 crore; Here is all you need to know: The ex-Australian captain has been roped by Delhi Capitals for Rs 2.2 crore. The axed Aussie captain, Steve Smith will surely be the elephant in the room on the auction day as the franchises will be looking to rope him for his experience and stellar show at the international fore over the years. Steve Smith was released by the Rajasthan Royals after his poor run in the IPL 2020, dwelling at the bottom of the table. Steve Smith had a poor display both as a leader and a batsman, managing to score only 311 runs in 14 matches. RR has officially deployed Sanju Samson as the new captain of the team.

Delhi Capitals made a bargain deal for the former Aussie skipper, who was earning Rs 12.5 crore at Rajasthan Royals until last season. RCB showed initial interest with the opening bid but no other franchises were interested in getting the Aussie top-order batsman. Delhi Capitals picked him for a lowly Rs 2.2 crore.
