11. Umesh Yadav

Pace has never been an issue for Umesh. He can run hard every time he bowls. With the best bowling figure of 4/24, he has shown his abilities with the ball. With the mega auction coming up, we might see more of him.

10. Kuldeep Yadav

Kuldeep Yadav will go down as one of the unluckiest cricketers of the current era. After the 2017 Champions trophy, he was one of the regular members of the national side. But for the past 12 months, he has been out of form.

9. Krishnappa Gowtham

Gowtham was picked up by CSK for a whopping amount of INR 9 crores. But, he was never included in the squad. He was their 12th man in every game and hence, was their premier substitute fielder.

8. Dominic Drakes

Here we have Dominic Drakes, a youngster who made the headlines after putting up a match-winning effort of 48 runs in 24 balls. As a result of which St Kitts went on to win the CPL. This was a stellar effort as they were on the verge of losing the game.

7. Mitchell Santner

He was included in the side in 2020 when his team was knocked out of the tournament. In this edition of the IPL, he was not given a single game. Well, he might get regular chances at another franchise.

6. Ben Cutting

He has a strike rate of 168.79 in the IPL. Well, for a batsman in the middle order, that is an excellent number. Adding on, he can bowl a few overs as an extra seamer as well. Therefore, he makes it to the team as one of the premier all-rounders.

5. Gurkeerat Singh

Gurkeerat Singh is another player in this lineup who has been underused by the franchises for quite some time. During the mid-2010s, he was so consistent with the bat that he earned a national callup. However, he was used for just three games.

4. Sheldon Jackson

Just like Jagadeesan, Sheldon Jackson is another batsman who has not played a single IPL game this year. He managed to play 4 matches in the 2017 season, but he could not make an impact. However, he has improved as a player since then.

3. Sam Billings(captain)

Sam is a wicketkeeper as well, so he could have been a great addition to the playing eleven for the Delhi Capitals. Adding on, his experience as a skipper for Kent also adds more feathers to his cap. This makes him the captain of his squad.

2. N Jagadeesan

Jagadeesan has played 35 T20s in his career. With 702 runs to his name and the highest score of 78, he has shown that he could be an asset in this format. But, he has been unlucky in the IPL till now.

1. Shreevats Goswami (wicketkeeper)

He has been a regular member of the domestic circuit. But, a national call-up became a far-fetched dream for Goswami. Since 2018, he has been a part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad but Saha’s presence meant that he had to warm the benches.
