Ajinkya Rahane, who has played a huge role in the rise of Rajasthan Royals, could play for Delhi Capitals next season, if the deal gets finalised. 

Speaking to IANS, sources revealed that the former RR captain could turn out for Delhi in IPL 2020. 

"Yes, DC is trying to get Rahane onboard, but too early to say if the deal will see the light of the day. A lot of things need to be taken care of before the dotted line is signed. RR's take on the whole issue can also not be discounted since he has been a huge ambassador for them. But yes, talks are on," the source said.

If the move does go ahead, it will be a huge buy for Delhi, who have looked to revamp their IPL franchise ever since the JSW Group came on board for 2019. After procuring Shikhar Dhawan from Sunrisers Hyderabad, the Delhi team made changes to their support staff as well, and the result was that the team finished third this year. It was their first semi-final apperance since 2009. 

"The side has attempted to get the right balance between youth and experience and what Rahane brings to the table isn't something one needs to talk about. It is there for all to see. Dhawan and Ishant Sharma showed what having experienced heads in the dug-out means when the situation is tough and this could be a dream move if sealed," the official told IANS.

Rahane earlier played for Mumbai Indians in 2008 and 2009, and missed the IPL in 2010. He has been with RR since 2011, though he did turn out for Pune for two years when the franchise was banned from 2017 to 2018.
