5) Delhi Daredevils
Delhi have quite a unique problem on their hands. They have excess of quality batsmen that can bat at top of the order.
Selecting the right balance between Shreyas Iyer, Karun Nair, Mayank Aggarwal, Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samsom has been a headache so far for the Delhi think tank.
Their biggest blunder this season has been the purchase of Pawan Negi. No doubt that he is one of the best talents out there but he isn’t one of the top 5 batsman nor does he feature as one of the 5 front line bowlers. Spending 8.5 crores on such a player looks like waste of money.
After a very ordinary start to the season, Delhi have bounced back really well and have surprised everyone. Zaheer’s brilliant captaincy and some quality death bowling has given them 3 wins out of the 5 matches they have played.
So what combination would probably give them the right balance?
De Kock, Iyer, Samson, R. Pant, Duminy, P. Negi, A. Mishra, I. Tahir, C. Morris, Z. Khan and M. Shami
