Left-arm medium pacer Khaleel Ahmed has been a proven performer at the youth level. Ahmed still has to match up to the expectations from him at the highest level and at the IPL though he has been found wanting on occasions. He was initially inducted into the Delhi Capitals side for the 2016 IPL. He was subsequently bought by SRH and has been retained since. He had a successful season in 2019 picking up 19 wickets that included a 3-wicket haul and a unique celebration style that caught everyone’s attention. Three years later, he returns to the DC after being bought for INR 5.25 Crore.
