Delhi Capitals' special match-worn shirts to go up for auctions

The Jerseys worn by the players will be auctioned and the DC fans will have an opportunity to get the signed shirts of their favourite players, all whilst raising funds for charity.

The fans can place bids on the Delhi Capitals’ jerseys worn by the players and the bids placed by the fans will help them to raise funds for the Inspire Institute of Sport (IIS) Vijayanagar, which is a unique initiative led by the JSW Group and is India’s first privately-funded High-Performance Training Centre that trains talented young athletes across various Olympic disciplines.

The funds that will be raised through auctioning the shirts will be used in nurturing the future sporting stars of India.
