Former Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) player Priyam Garg has joined the Delhi Capitals (DC) squad as a replacement for Kamlesh Nagarkoti, who is out of IPL 2023 due to an injury issue.
He led the Indian team at the 2020 Under-19 World Cup, where the team lost to Bangladesh in the finals. SRH picked him up at the IPL auction the same year.
Priyam Garg played 21 matches for the Hyderabad franchise across three seasons till 2022 and scored 251 runs at an average of 15.69, including a solitary half-century.
SRH released him ahead of the IPL 2023 mini-auction last December after his dismal performances with the bat. The youngster did not find any bidders at the auction and went unsold.
Delhi Capitals have now roped in Garg in the hope of giving themselves more options in the batting department, having struggled miserably so far this season. The Delhi franchise recently updated fans about Priyam Garg‘s induction into their squad by sharing a video from the training session on their Instagram handle. They captioned the post:
