Delhi had retained Chris Morris, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant ahead of  the auction. Delhi purchased Kagiso Rabada and Mohammed Shami using Right to Match (RTM) cards.

Delhi have chosen their squad very carefully as it makes their team very balanced. They have gone with big hitters like Colin Munro, Glenn Maxwell, Jason Roy, Daniel Christian and Morris. One big plus for them will be Gautam Gambhir returning to the squad for captaining. Gambhir has won two titles for KKR with his captaincy and is all set to turn things around  for Delhi who are still to win their maiden title.

Delhi have purchased two players from the current U-19 squad of which one is them is the in-form Prithvi Shaw. The pace bowling department of Delhi is explosive with the likes of Trent Boult, Rabada, Morris and Shami. The experience of Amit Mishra will be a big plus for young spinners.

The Delhi team is well balanced with reputed International players, experienced Indian players and inform domestic players. Delhi have a very good chance in the IPL 2018.
