His signing takes the tally of England players in the IPL to 11.

Eight of those were picked up at the auction, while Alex Hales, Tom Curran and Plunkett have been signed as replacements.

The IPL starts on Saturday and runs until 27 May, with Delhi's first match against Kings XI Punjab on Sunday, 8 April.
