    How to say about delayed reply?

    Is that correct to say "sorry for my delay in reply" if I've replied a person's email after two days?

    "Sorry for the delay in replying" is the standard phrase in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That is also standard in AmE.
