Ricky Ponting hinted that Delhi Capitals freed up their wallet to make a big bid for the young Australian all-rounder.

Legendary Australia captain and Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting has suggested that his IPL franchise will target all-rounder Cameron Green in the upcoming IPL 2023 mini-auction. Delhi Capitals have not won an IPL trophy since the inception of the tournament, but after Ponting’s arrival in the camp, the franchise rejuvenated itself and produced some fine performances in the last few years. They failed to reach the playoffs last season as a result Ponting and team management will look to add firepower to their squad through the upcoming auction.

In a conversation with Australia head coach Andrew McDonald during the first Test match against West Indies, Ponting hinted that the Capitals freed up their wallet to make a big bid for the young Australian all-rounder.
