“I’m very excited to be joining the Delhi Capitals. I have heard great things about the setup and can’t wait to join the group and make a contribution to the team,” Sutherland on getting picked in WPL season 2.

The Delhi team was engaged in a competitive bidding war with the Mumbai Indians for Annabel Sutherland’s services. Sutherland, who boasts a cricket resume of three Tests, 23 ODIs, and 22 T20Is, eventually went to Delhi Capitals for a significant Rs 2 crore during the auction. With a T20 record of 97 runs in 10 innings and 10 wickets in 19 innings, she caught the attention of teams.

The defending champions, known for their aggressive pursuit of players, withdrew from the race once the bidding reached Rs 2 crore. Notably, Sutherland’s base price was Rs 40 lakh.

The hard-hitting all-rounder from Australia had previously played for the Gujarat Giants in the last season, where she was acquired by the Adani-backed franchise for Rs 70 lakh. However, she was released this year by the Giants, reportedly due to interest from UP Warriorz. Sutherland now stands as the highest buy at this year’s auction so far, sharing the spotlight with Kashvee Gautam.

“It is a big compliment to be in demand. I now look forward to repaying the Capitals faith in me,” Sutherland said.

Charlotte Edwards, Mumbai Indians head coach, said she was disappointed at not getting Sutherland. “Going into the auction, there were three probable targets for us – Annabel, Shabnim Ismail and Chamari Athapathu. Annabel is one of the all-rounders and is a great addition for Delhi. We are happy to have got Ismail,” the former England skipper said.

Shabnim Ismail picked by Mumbai Indians.
