The IPL 2024 auction gave all ten franchises a chance to build their squad in the best way possible. All of them filled up gaps in their squads, be it in batting, bowling, or even wicketkeeping. But as the rules go, only a handful of players are going to be first-choice picks. 

The franchises have picked some players as backups as well, in case, their first-choice player becomes unavailable due to any reason. Be it injury or personal issues, the teams are ready with the players who get to prepare in the same way the main squad does. However, there are going to be at least 1-2 players in each franchise, that might not get any game in the upcoming IPL 2024 season.

And today, we take a look at one such player, team-wise, who might be benched for the entire IPL 2024.

Here is Team-wise one player who might be benched for the whole IPL 2024 season:

1. Delhi Capitals- Shai Hope

Shai Hope earned his maiden Indian Premier League contract in the IPL 2024 auction. He was bought by the Delhi Capitals for his base price. DC had gone on a rampage buying wicketkeepers in the IPL 2024 auction as they wanted backups in case Rishabh Pant didn’t keep a wicket in the tournament.

Shai Hope’s T20 numbers are decent with 2225 runs in 95 matches with one century and 10 fifties at a strike rate of 126.56. He is also a safe keeper with 41 catches and nine stumpings to his name. However, given that there are the likes of Kumar Kushagra, Tristan Stubbs, Abishek Porel, and Ricky Bhui in line for the keeping slot, it seems unlikely that Hope will get a chance to play a match in IPL 2024.
