The Delhi Daredevils went in with a clear strategy in the IPL Auction 2018. They wanted to revamp the whole squad and were in the hunt for some big names. They bid for quite a few players and at the end, managed to grab plenty of experienced players.

The highlight of the auction for DD turned out to be the purchase of Gautam Gambhir. He was bagged for a bid of INR 2.8 crores and Kolkata Knight Riders did not show any interest in retaining him. As a result, Gambhir returned to the setup of DD and is the premier prospect for the captaincy.

The biggest purchase happened to be Australia’s explosive batsman Glenn Maxwell for INR 9 crores. He was let go by Kings XI Punjab but DD did not mind loosening the pocket for him. They then had 2 absolute steal deals in the form of Jason Roy and Colin Munro. Both of them are specialists of the shortest format of the game and were bought for just a few bucks as compared to what they were expected to get.

Amongst the Indian bowlers, DD managed to rope in the pacer Mohammed Shami and the leg-spinner Amit Mishra. South Africa’s young pacer Kagiso Rabada will represent DD once again as he was picked up for INR 4.2 crores. India’s Under-19 captain and a massively talented batsman Prithvi Shaw will also play for DD. Trent Boult and Daniel Christian were the other big names added on the second day of the auction.
