Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals had an interesting auction day on Monday evening as the franchise rose a lot of eyebrows for not buying a single player in the first two sets. While their tactics were widely discussed on social media, it also grabbed the attention of the Indian cricketer Harleen Doel, who was seen watching the auction along with other Indian teammates.

As Renuka Singh was picked by Royal Challengers Bangalore for a whopping Rs. 1.5 crore, Indian players watching the auction were seen congratulating Renuka for her successful bidding. Meanwhile, Harleen Deol looked confused over Delhi Capitals' tactics as she was seen asking other teammates, "Yeh Delhi Wale Kiske Lie Paise Bacha Rahe Hain". The same was captured in a video shared by Jio Cinema on their official Twitter handle.
