Delhi Capitals Face Setback as Harry Brook Likely to Miss IPL 2024

The Delhi Capitals have suffered a significant setback ahead of the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season, with star English batter Harry Brook expected to miss the tournament for personal reasons. Brook, who the Capitals acquired for a hefty ₹13.25 crore at the IPL 2024 auction, was unable to participate in the recent Test series in India and is unlikely to be available for the upcoming IPL season.

Jake Fraser-McGurk Emerges as Potential Replacement

In light of Brook’s absence, the Delhi Capitals are reportedly exploring Australian all-rounder Jake Fraser-McGurk as a potential replacement. Fraser-McGurk, who has previously represented the Capitals’ affiliate team, Dubai Capitals, in the ILT20, has impressed the franchise with his all-around abilities.

The 21-year-old left-handed batter and right-arm medium pacer made headlines in October 2023 when he smashed the fastest List-A century, reaching the milestone in 29 deliveries. He surpassed the previous record held by former South African great AB de Villiers, who had achieved a century in 31 balls.

Brook’s Disappointing IPL 2023 Performance

Despite his hefty price tag, Brook’s performance with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2023 fell short of expectations. In 11 SRH matches, Brook scored only 190 runs, failing to make a significant impact.

Rishabh Pant’s Return to Action

While the Capitals will miss Brook’s presence, they will be boosted by the return of captain Rishabh Pant, who is set to make his long-awaited comeback to the cricket field after enduring a life-threatening road accident that kept him sidelined for 14 months. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has granted Pant permission to represent the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024.

Delhi Capitals’ Full Squad for IPL 2024

The Delhi Capitals’ entire squad for IPL 2024 includes:

  • Rishabh Pant (c)
  • Pravin Dubey
  • David Warner
  • Vicky Ostwal
  • Prithvi Shaw
  • Anrich Nortje
  • Abishek Porel
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Axar Patel
  • Lungi Ngidi
  • Lalit Yadav
  • Khaleel Ahmed
  • Mitchell Marsh
  • Ishant Sharma
  • Yash Dhull
  • Mukesh Kumar
  • Harry Brook (likely to miss)
  • Tristan Stubbs
  • Ricky Bhui
  • Kumar Kushagra
  • Rasikh Dar
  • Jhye Richardson
  • Sumit Kumar
  • Shai Hope
  • Swastik Chhikara


The Delhi Capitals’ absence of Harry Brook is a significant blow to their hopes of winning their maiden IPL title. However, the franchise will be confident in its ability to overcome this setback and challenge for the championship with a strong and experienced squad led by Rishabh Pant.
