Delhi Capitals released nine players, including the surprise release of Chris Morris. They traded in Ajinkya Rahane, which has the potential to mess up their batting order with Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw already in the squad, along with Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant.

So, DC will head into the IPL 2020 Auction with the challenges to fix their batting order and create a good squad. Here are five players they can go for to fix their problems:

5. Varun Chakravarthy

The most expensive buy of last season, Varun Charkravarthy, played just one match and then missed the rest of the campaign due to injury. He is now available for selection after being released by KXIP. DC can go for him as a backup for Amit Mishra, as the mystery spinner has some great numbers in domestic games.

4. Heinrich Klaasen

Delhi tried Colin Ingram last season in the middle order, which didn’t prove too successful. So, after releasing him this year, DC can go for Heinrich Klaasen as his replacement. Klaasen bats very aggressively and also plays spin well; needed on the sluggish pitch of Delhi. Klaasen also didn’t get enough exposure in the RCB side due to their star top order and can make his name if plays for the Delhi side.

3. Dale Steyn

Delhi Capitals need someone to accompany Kagiso Rabada. Dale Steyn, released by RCB, can be the perfect choice. He can bowl with new ball, at the death and is a proven match winner. He can be a good asset for Delhi.

Dale Steyn could have plenty to offer.

2. Colin de Grandhomme

After releasing Morris, DC need someone to fill his boots. Colin de Grandhomme can be a good choice. Although he doesn’t bowl as quickly as Morris, de Grandhomme can be key in accelerating the scoring rate, especially with Ajinkya Rahane in the team. He can finish the innings on a high for DC, along with the likes of Rishabh Pant and Keemo Paul.

1. Chris Morris

The biggest problem for Delhi Capitals is to maintain a balance between their batting and bowling after releasing Chris Morris. They have a few players but they don’t bring the quality Morris did. So the perfect choice for them this auction is to go for Chris Morris again.

It’s a bit difficult but they may get for him for a lower price, which would be a win-win situation. We all know how capable Morris is with both bat and ball. Indeed, Delhi need his services for at least this season.
