With India’s campaign coming to an end with a humiliating defeat against England on November 10, Thursday, all eyes will be on the upcoming mini-auction for the Indian T20 League 2023 which is set to take place on December 23, in Kochi. As things stand, with just over a month to go for the auction, all teams will look to fill in their requirements and release players to make changes in the squad. 

The Delhi franchise, on the other hand, is all set to release Shardul Thakur and four other players ahead of the upcoming mini-auction. Let us take a look at those players whom the Delhi franchise might let go of ahead of the important strategic auction:

1) Shardul Thakur

The Delhi team bought Shardul Thakur for a whopping INR 10.75 crore and one has to agree that it went in vain as the renowned cricketer failed to deliver for the team. Thakur only managed to pick only 15 scalps in the 14 matches that he played at an economy of around 10. 

With the mini-auction right around the corner, reports claim that the team management might release him into the pool and the Chennai franchise are the most favourites to get the player back into the den in the Indian T20 League 2023.
