Delhi Capitals roped in South African pacer Lizaad Williams as a replacement for Harry Brook for the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

Harry Brook withdrew from the Delhi Capitals squad ahead of IPL 2024 to be with his family after the passing away of his grandmother, who, according to him, was a rock and shaped up his love for cricket. The England batter penned a emotional note on his Instagram handle to reveal the decision behind his withdrawal from the ongoing IPL season.

Brook's withdrawing from IPL 2024 was a big blow for Delhi Capitals as the franchise acquired his services for 4 crore at the IPL 2024 auction.

As per the statement by Indian Premier League on its website, Delhi Capitals signed in Lizaad Williams as a replacement for Brook and will join the squad for INR 50 lakh.

"Lizaad Williams, the South African fast bowler, has been signed by the Delhi Capitals as a replacement for England’s Harry Brook for the remainder of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024." statement read.

"Since making his international debut in 2021, Williams has represented South Africa in two Tests, four One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 11 T20 Internationals. He joins Delhi Capitals at his base price of INR 50 lakhs." statement added.

Lizaad Williams is an experienced international cricketer, having played for South Africa in 17 matches across all formats since making his debut for Proteas in a T20I match against Pakistan in April 2021.

Williams was part of the South Africa squad that participated in the ODI World Cup last year. The 30-year-old made his World Cup debut against Bangladesh, where he scalped two wickets while conceding 56 runs with an economy rate of 6.46 in 8.4 overs.

Delhi Capitals won 1 match out of 5 matches

Delhi Capitals have had a disappointing campaign in the ongoing IPL season they managed to win only match out of five games played so far and are currently languishing at the bottom of the points table with just 2 points.

Rishabh Pant-led side began their campaign two consecutive defeats against Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals. In the match against Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals registered their win of the season. But, again, IPL 2020 finalists suffered another two losses on the trot against Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians.

DC missed the services of Kuldeep Yadav and Mitchell during the clash against Mumbai Indians at Wankhede due to respective injuries.

Ahead of their match against Luckniw Super Giants, Delhi Capitals have been met with setback as Marsh is ruled out of action for a week due to hamstring injury.
