In the last few seasons, the Delhi Capitals have emerged as one of the most consistent sides in the Indian Premier League. However, the coveted IPL title is still evading them. During the auction ahead of IPL 2022, Delhi Capitals assembled a strong squad in their bid to win their first-ever title.
However, their campaign was rocked midway through the tournament as Delhi Capitals’ camp was hit by COVID-19. Despite all the hurdles, the Delhi-based franchise bounced back in style by putting up strong performances. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals still missed out on a place in the playoffs by a whisker.
Delhi Capitals finished 5th in the points table and missed another opportunity to win the title. They will be eager to make amendments by reaching the playoffs once again. While the team management will be looking to add more firepower to the unit, they are likely to release a few players from their squad. Hence, let’s take a look at the 5 players Delhi Capitals can release ahead of IPL 2023.
5. Pravin Dubey
The Delhi-based franchise signed Pravin Dubey as an injury replacement for Amit Mishra in the 2020 edition. The franchise picked the Leggie once again in the 2022 edition, but the youngster didn’t get any games during the entire season.
The 29-year-old has been a consistent performer in a shorter format in the Indian domestic circuit. Speaking of domestic T20s, he has accounted for 20 wickets in 22 matches at a brilliant economy rate of 7.13. However, Delhi Capitals have two quality spinners in Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav in their ranks.
Meanwhile, they also have Lalit Yadav as another spin-bowling option in their playing XI. Hence, Pravin Dubey is way behind in the pecking order. Delhi Capitals could release the leg-spinner as they might opt to sign any young player keeping the future in mind.
