4. Delhi Capitals – Ajinkya Rahane
The Delhi Capitals are also likely to clear Ajinkya Rahane ahead of the next auction. The Test specialist of India only played a handful number of matches in IPL 2020 and wasn’t able to create an impact. Rahane looked a liability at number 3 as he struggled to accelerate against both pace and spin the middle order.
The IPL finalists will be looking at SMAT 2021 closely and trying to find an explosive middle-order batsman who has the potential to win matches single-handedly. As far as Rahane is concerned he is likely to be released and he might play for another franchise in the next season.
