IPL 2022: ‘Plan was to get explosive batter’ says Amre on DC acquiring Warner

IPL 2022: Delhi Capitals’ assistant coach Pravin Amre has explained why the franchise wanted to sign Australia batter David Warner for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season.

On Day 1 of the IPL 2022 mega auction in Bengaluru, the Delhi Capitals purchased Australian T20 World Cup winners David Warner and Mitchell Marsh, as well as seasoned India all-rounder Shardul Thakur. While Warner and Marsh were bought for Rs 6.25 crore and Rs 6.50 crore. Thakur was the franchise’s most expensive purchase at the auction, costing Rs 10.75 crore. The Delhi-based franchise also paid Rs 2 crore for the services of Indian left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav and Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman, as well as exciting domestic talent Ashwin Hebbar (Rs 20 lakh), Sarfaraz Khan (Rs 20 lakh), Kamlesh Nagarkoti (1.10 crore), and KS Bharat (Rs 20 lakh) (2 crore).

“Our plan was to get an explosive batsman on top, and we got David Warner, who won the man of the series award at the T20 World Cup in 2021. We are also very happy to get a good all-rounder in Mitch Marsh. Shardul Thakur has playing for India in all three formats. And was part of India’s winning team last year in Australia. Hence, as a franchise, we backed him. We are also happy to get good buys Kuldeep and Mustafizur under our budget,” Amre said in an official release.
