IPL 2022 Auction: 3 Openers Delhi Capitals (DC) Can Target
Given Dhawan’s contribution to Delhi since 2019 and the kind of consistency he has shown for the franchise, he should be one of the first few players they should target in the IPL. He scored 1726 runs in the last three years scoring 12 fifties and two hundreds in the meantime. IF they can buy him back, he can fill a big part of that core given his experience of playing in the IPL.
Delhi Capitals is led by a young captain in Rishabh Pant and Dhawan’s experience in guiding the young players in the squad will be an invaluable asset.
