Instead the Delhi Capitals have retained captain Rishabh Pund. Akshar Patel, Prithviraj Shah and Anrich Nordye have also been retained in the Delhi squad. But Shikhar Dhawan, Ravichandran Aswin, Kikiso, Rabada and Shreyas Iyer have to compete in the auction.
Shreyas Iyer has expressed his desire to be the captain of the Delhi Capitals team, but it seems that Shreyas Iyer will take advantage of the opportunity as the team management is currently looking for a new captain with a total of 5 teams to come in with 2 new teams to retain Rishabh Banda as captain.
Shreyas Iyer took over the captaincy from Gautam Gambhir in the middle of the IPL 2018 series. The team that captained Iyer next year qualified for the play-off round. Shreyas Iyer once led Delhi to the final. But the Mumbai Indians embraced defeat.
Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the IPL 2021 series due to a shoulder injury sustained in the series against England. The Delhi Capitals came after Ravichandran Aswin was dropped from the team as the captain of the Punjab Kings, bowling well and now failing in both the T20 World Cup and the New Zealand series, but the Delhi Capitals released him.
It has been decided that the Mumbai Indians will release Suriyakumar Yadav and then bid farewell. Kolkata Knight Riders have retained the May Islanders Sunil Narine and Andre Russell, while Varun Chakraborty is expected to be retained.
