Why DC not retaining Shikhar Dhawan? Dhawan has been one of the most successful & attacking batsman in the history of IPL. He also has been the highest run getter for Delhi Capitals in both IPL 2020 & IPL 2021.

Shikhar Dhawan in the last two IPL seasons
IPL 2020 – M 17 / Runs – 618 / Av – 44.14 / SR – 144.73
IPL 2021 – M 16 / Runs – 587 / Av – 39.13 / SR – 124.62

With such an awesome record – why did DC management decided to not retain Dhawan? The source in DC management told InsideSport that it is his age & falling Strike Rate that went against Dhawan.

“Shikhar is now almost 36. Players are getting retained for the next 3 seasons & the franchise wanted to retain those players who can serve the team for the next 3 years. Moreover Dhawan’s strike-rate also has been area of concern. Last year he scored, but he wasn’t that fluent. This is the reason DC decided to invest on the younger players”

In comparison, all 4 retained players are young & DC management feels they will form the nucleus of the team for the next 3 years. Rishabh Pant is 24, Prithvi Shaw is 22, Axar Patel is 27 & while Anrich Nortje is 28 years old.

Not only Dhawan, for the reason franchise has also let go two of their most successful spinners i.e R.Ashwin & Amit Mishra. Also Delhi has decided not to retain their IPL 2020 captain Shreyas Iyer.
