In an interview with the team’s media department (DCTV), Pravin Amre discussed the difficult obstacles a team faces during auctions, adding that the mega auctions could be the hardest difficulty in the IPL tournament.

The contribution of coaches and professional management in bringing a great outcome from the competition is acknowledged by the assistant coach of the Delhi Capitals. Amre believes that as a coach, he needs a perfectly balanced team for the upcoming tournament, and that he is happy with the four players he has retained, who provide a perfect blend in all areas of the playing XI, whereas DC still needs to buy more players and a significant number of 7 players to at least make a strong playing XI, and that the purse balance of 47.5 crores is a “tough challenge” because there are other teams out there with significantly more money.

“This is where the management’s expertise and experience will matter,” says Pravin Amre, referring to the fact that franchises with more money will have a financial advantage.

Pravin Amre, speaking about the IPL Auctions, believes that the dynamic of IPL auctions can never be predicted, which is why a franchise should prepare for the worst-case scenario because things rarely go as planned when the teams are in the auction hall.

Opening up about the IPL management’s mock auction, Amre believes that it is crucial to do a mock auction since it offers team members a basic notion of how to go about the auction and also helps a franchise comprehend what other owners miss when thinking about a player or a specific scenario.

Before the forthcoming IPL Mega Auctions on February 12 and 13, the Delhi Capitals have retained Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Prithvi Shaw, and Anrich Nortje.
