The other notable face during the trials was Punjab pacer Manpreet Singh Gony.
However DC management has not yet taken any decision on replacements as there is another round of trials set to be held on Friday morning.
With pacer Harshal Patel ruled out with a hand fracture and batsman Manjot Kalra also likely to sit out, DC will be needing at least two replacements.
Tiwary, who has been a part of past 11 IPL editions, missed out at the auction and was doing Bengali commentary for the host broadcaster when he was summoned for the trials.
"Yes, I attended the trials. I felt that it went off well. I had a chat with DC advisor Sourav Ganguly and coach Ricky Ponting. I have not been officially told anything. Hoping for the best," Tiwary told PTI.
If Tiwary makes the cut, it will be in place of left-handed Kalra. A brilliant fielder inside the 30-yard circle, the Bengal skipper has played for Delhi franchise on two separate occasions apart from KKR, KXIP and Rising Pune Supergiants.
