🚨 RETAINED PLAYERS 🚨
Back where they belong 😌
— Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) January 20, 2021
On the bright side, Ishant Sharma who was ruled out of the competition due to injury last season made a successful comeback in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament. It was a positive sign for the bowler which resulted in another big signing for DC. Also, Shikhar Dhawan is a player who was sure to be retained by Delhi Capitals as he is among the highest scorers in the entire IPL season.
IPL 2021 Delhi Capitals Released Players (Confirmed)
There are six players who were removed from their duties and released from the IPL 2021 DC squad. The released players of Delhi Capitals include:
- Sandeep Lamichhane
- Mohit Sharma
- Keemo Paul
- Alex Carey
- Tushar Deshpande
- Jason Roy
Sandeep Lamichhane, a young talented bowler from Nepal, has always proven to be a good investment in the past two seasons. Despite the good performance, Sandeep is released from the DC team and now a free agent to be available in the auctions.
In the same way, Jason Roy, who signed with the roster in IPL 13, is a master of the T20 format who loves to deliver hard-hitting right-hand shot boundaries with ease. Signing Roy could possibly impose a threat for other teams on the ground. However, he opted out of the team in IPL 2020 due to personal reasons, which led him to lose contracts this year.
IPL 2021 DC Squad
Captained by Shreya Iyer & coached by the cricket star Ricky Ponting, the Delhi Capitals is the finest team in the Indian Premier League. They were runner-ups in IPL 2020 who displayed an excellent show against Mumbai Indians in UAE last year.
Shikhar Dhawan, a highly rated left-handed batsman from India is the opener on most occasions & also plays for the national team. He created a buzz by contributing 505 runs in the 2004 Under 19 World Cup. As time passed, his batting skills are more decorated enough to create havoc on the field with maximum boundaries.
