Alex Carey was picked by Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2020 auction on the back of his tremendous range of shots and wicket-keeping skills. He had a terrific World Cup in England earlier last year and he was rated highly by cricket pundits for his display to score quickly with some classy shots. He also played well against the English side in the semi-final when all looked gloomy for Australia against Jofra Archer led strong bowling line up.
Delhi paid Rs 2.40 crore for Carey and the kind of talent he possesses and the sparks he has shown in the recent past, he should be one of the best picks made by the Delhi Capital management.
Carey can bring flexibility to the Delhi side with his kind of batting which is suited to any juncture of the game. He has batted as an opener and also as a lower-order batsman for the Australian side and has had success at both positions. He can bring fluidity to the Shreyas Iyer-led side however he will have his tasks cut out even before getting into the XI as Delhi already have a stable wicket-keeping batsman in the form of Rishabh Pant.
