Delhi Capitals bought Mukesh Kumar, Rilee Rossouw, Phil Salt, Ishant Sharma, and Manish Pandey in the recently concluded IPL 2023 Auction. Delhi Capitals have Sarfaraz Khan, who has done some wicket-keeping in domestic cricket, but only on a part-time basis, and he is also not a certain starter in Delhi’s XI.

Sarfaraz Khan though is the best bet to replace Rishabh Pant in Delhi Capitals’ playing XI as it will allow the team to add an additional batter or bowler in IPL 2023. In IPL 2022, his only season for Delhi Capitals, Sarfaraz Khan scored 91 runs averaging 30.33 in 6 matches, 5 innings.
