IPL 2024 Updates: Delhi Capitals Sign Lizaad Williams as Replacement for Harry Brook

Delhi Capitals Sign Lizaad Williams as Replacement for Harry Brook

The Delhi Capitals have bolstered their bowling attack with the signing of South African fast bowler Lizaad Williams for the remainder of the IPL 2024 season. Williams comes in as a replacement for England batsman Harry Brook, who withdrew from the tournament due to personal reasons.

Delhi Capitals’ official X handle tweeted this announcement.

“The speedster, Lizaad Williams is all set to ROAR for us this season,” the Delhi Capitals announced on their social media channels, using the hashtags #YehHaiNayiDilli and #IPL2024.

The 30-year-old Williams has represented South Africa in two Tests, four ODIs, and 11 T20 Internationals since making his international debut in 2021. He was acquired by the Delhi Capitals at his base price of INR 50 lakh.

Brook’s absence was a significant blow for the Delhi Capitals, who had secured his services for a hefty ₹4 crore at the IPL 2024 auction. However, the signing of Williams adds much-needed pace to their bowling attack. Williams is known for his ability to generate good pace and swing the new ball, which could be a valuable asset for the Delhi Capitals in the upcoming matches.

With the addition of Williams, the Delhi Capitals will be hoping to solidify their position in the IPL 2024 playoffs. Right now they are number 10 at the points table after losing 4 matches out of 5.
