This star all-rounder of India was a pivotal part of the Delhi franchise in the last season of the Indian T20 League. In that season, Shardul Thakur played 14 matches where he scored 120 runs, at a strike rate of 15. His overall strike rate was 137.93. However, he came up with some good performances with the ball.

Thakur took 15 wickets in 14 matches, at an economy of 9.79. Despite taking wickets, he conceded runs at a high rate. So, now reports are suggesting that Delhi might let him go ahead of the next season. They even can use him as part of trading Ravindra Jadeja with the Chennai franchise.
