Delhi Daredevils are now – Delhi Capitals
The Delhi team unveils a new identity, with a new logo, new crest and new colours
Delhi were very active in the trading phase where the teams could trade players among themselves. They traded the trio of Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem and Abhishek Sharma for Shikhar Dhawan from SRH.
Let us take a look at the players who the Delhi Capitals have decided to keep as part of their squad for the next season as they seek to win their first title. While some players have been dropped, many veterans of the squad remain and will continue to form part of the core that the Delhi Daredevils seem to have identified.
Traded: Shikhar Dhawan from Sunrisers Hyderabad for Abhishek Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem
Hanuma Vihari – Rs 2 crore
Axar Patel – Rs 5 crore
Ishant Sharma – Rs 1.10 crore
Ankush Bains – Rs 20 lakh

Colin Ingram – Rs 6.40 crore
