Delhi Daredevils Squad 2017
Delhi Daredevils Team 2017 IPL Players List
Delhi IPL team 2017 squad is placed here. The Delhi Daredevils have always been a promising side, as they have tried to put on a good show in every edition of the Indian Premier League. However they have spent the last few seasons staying in the bottom four. IPL Delhi team 2017 is placed below.
Last season was unlike any other, as they began the tournament with Rahul Dravid being their mentor, while Paddy Upton coached the side. The captaincy of the team was handed to Zaheer Khan, who brought his immense international and domestic experience to great use and led the youthful squad.
However, despite starting out superbly, they began to fumble towards the closing stages of the league. With 14 points, they had to settle for a sixth place finish. Nonetheless, the side did boast of few players who are capable of putting up a good fight and single-handedly, leading the team to wins.
Rising South African batsman Quentin de Kock was the side’s best performer, who scored 445 runs in his 13 games. His best score came against Royal Challengers Bangalore, where his innings of 108 runs led the Daredevils to an unexpected victory.
The only other player who comes close to matching this tally is Karun Nair, who scored 357 runs in his 12 innings. Moving on to bowling, Chris Morris and Amit Mishra remained to be the side’s best bowlers with a record of 13 wickets each. Although, it was Mishra who doled out better bowling figures with 4/11 being his best feat. Big guns such as Imran Tahir, Zaheer Khan and Nathan Coulter-Nile proved to be disappointing, as they failed to shine with the ball.
Delhi has never had a problem of potential if one looks at their team line-up. It’s just that they have never got their act together. The presence of Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Sanju Samson and Carlos Braihwhite would be reassuring for the side as these names need no introduction to any form of cricket and all are well-known for their contribution in their respective departments. JP Duminy pulls out of IPL due to personal reasons. Quinton de Kock out of IPL due to injury.
To top it all, the team this year has made drastic changes in the squad in a bid to get the desired outcome. The best news for the team is that they have been able to acquire great players in the form of Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada and Pat Cummins.
The viewers and supporters would like to see the daredevils of Delhi show their daredevilry and add some serious competition to an already intensified league. What the Daredevils need right now is consistency in their side. While the squad is decent enough to reach the playoffs, getting more consistent can certainly take them through to the championship.
