As the grand home season has ended, now all eyes are on the 10th season of Indian Premier League starting from 5th April. We will go through all the teams contesting in the league starting with Delhi Daredevil.
Delhi Daredevil has mostly been in the lower half of the points table barring 2008, 2009 and 2012. In the last season, they stood at 6th place. Now under the captaincy of Zaheer Khan and coach Paddy Upton, they will hope to move to the upper half and win the league this year.
They will miss the services on JP Duminy this season so the batting will be reliant on Quinton de Kock, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer. They will also have the services of Chris Morris, Angelo Mathews, Carlos Brathwaite and Corey Anderson who all can bat.
In the bowling department, they will hope that Zaheer Khan and Mohammed Shami are fit. Zaheer Khan may be not that potent now but he is still an asset with his huge experience. They will also have Kasigo Rabada, Pat Cummins who are in great form. Not to forget Murugan Ashwin who will be a mystery to most of the batsmen.
