New Players signed by DC for IPL 2022

Though Delhi Capitals have an quite inpressive batting and bowling unit they still struggles to find a perfect all-rounder who can play death overs with high SR. DC will rope a all rounder like Pollard for MI, Baravo for CSK in the upsoming IPL 2022 mega auction.

DC have a strong opening pair who can destruct any bowling unit but when it comes to the middle order players they still relay on some surprise performance from their players. Thus DC will seek to rectify this problem in IPL 2022 mega auction by roping the perfect player for the slot.
