Delhi Capitals have added 8 players to their squad for the IPL auction held in Chennai. The veteran batsman, Steve Smith was bought for INR 2.2 crores and Indian pacer, Umesh Yadav for INR 1 crore. 

Shreyas Iyer led Delhi Capitals invested INR 5.25 crores to get the services of a British import, Sam Curran as a left-arm pacer.

Other than that, Sam Billings was bought for INR 2 crores and the remaining players were bought for INR 20 lakhs. These players include; Vishnu Vinod, Ripal Patel, M Siddarth, and Lukman Meriwala.  

Delhi Capitals have a lot of players that can turn the game towards their side in no time. Players like Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Ishant Sharma deserve no introduction as they are game-changers in themselves. 

Delhi Capitals under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer were quite impressive in the previous edition of IPL as they stood runners-up against Mumbai Indians. MI dominated with experience in the final against DC but overall, DC was watchful throughout the campaign and it will be interesting to see how DC start their show in the 14th edition.
