IPL 2020: Delhi Capitals release 9 players: List of released, retained players, purse for IPL auction

IPL 2020: Delhi release 9 players

Bengaluru, November 15: Delhi Capitals on Friday (November 15) released 9 players ahead of the IPL auction to be held on December 19 at Kolkata. The Capitals never won the IPL title but showed promise in IPL 2019 under Shreyas Iyer when they reached the play-offs after a long gap and they would like to better that effort this season.

The Delhi franchise let go some of big names like Hanuma Vihari, Chris Morris, Colin Ingram and Colin Munro etc while retained others like captain Shreyas Iyer, Amit Mishra, Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant as expected. Now, they will be eager to further fortify the team in the auction and add maiden title to their kitty.
