Delhi Capitals will have the lowest purse remaining at the auction. With 47.4 crores left, the franchise needs to build a well-rounded squad keeping in mind the longevity and availability of players. The franchise retained Rishabh Pant (INR 16 crore), Axar Patel (INR 9 crore), Prithvi Shaw (INR 7.5 crore), Anrich Nortje (INR 6.5 crore) during the retention window.
The challenge for Delhi Capitals will be to rebuild their core. They have had to let go of Shreyas Iyer, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Ashwin and Kagiso Rabada due to the strict retention rules. They will need to enter the dogfight with the other nine franchises to get the services of all of them back. Or they can look at other options as well. Here is a probable list of players Delhi Capitals can look to buy at the mega auctions.

Openers-Sam Billings, Aaron Finch
The Australian opener can be a good option at the top alongside Prithvi Shaw. Both play attacking cricket and can complement each other. Finch also has the quality of anchoring an innings as well. Billings is another option.
He can bat at any position and is a gun fielder and a keeper as well. He will thus cover three facets of the game.
