For a long time now, Dabang Delhi has been a team that has laid a platform for individuals to blossom but has not been able to stitch the performances together in order to win games.

Since the inaugural season, Delhi's best finish has been sixth place while in the second and third season, the form get dipping as they finished seventh and had to settle with the wooden spoon in the third season.

Right throughout the fifth season, captain Meraj Sheykh transpired to be the lone bright spark in a faltering campaign as they finished last in Zone A with just five wins from 22 games.

However, ahead of the auctions, they decided to retain their talismanic skipper and build a squad around him and if one was to glance at the players they have managed to add to their squad, Dabang Delhi will be hoping to see a change in fortunes soon.

Khomsan Thongkham was their lone overseas purchase at ₹8 lakh and joining him in the squad was Pawan Kumar Kadian (₹20 lakh), a steal for his calibre while raiding.

The second day started on a positive note as Delhi made two buys in a row in the form of Satpal Narwal (₹12 lakh) and exercised their 'FBM' card on the impressive Vishnu Viraj Landge (₹25 lakh).

However, they did not stop there and added two more huge names in the form of Vishal Mane (₹45 lakh) and Joginder Narwal (₹33 lakh) that rounded off a good session for them.

A heated bid for Chandran Ranjith (₹61.25), who performed exceedingly well for U Mumba last season was followed by the acquisition of Shabeer Bapu (₹15.5) who has been a phenomenal raiding force in the past.

Delhi also made the first buy in category 'C' in the form of experienced all-rounder Rajesh Narwal (₹16 lakh) and then took the backseat, making only one more buy through Anil Kumar (₹8 lakh) and ended a good auction for them with the purchase of ace right corner defender Ravinder Pahal (₹20 lakh).
