Delhi Daredevils Squad 2018
Delhi Daredevils Team 2018 IPL Players List
Delhi IPL team 2018 players are placed here. The Delhi Daredevils are one of the eight founding franchises in the IPL, but they have never won the competition. After a great start which saw them make the semi-finals in the first two seasons, they have really struggled recently and will be desperate to put that behind them. With Ricky Ponting in charge of the team, they certainly have a man who knows how to win, he just needs to pass that on to his team now and turn around their fortunes. Gautham Gambhir appointed team captain. DD squad 2018 is placed below.
On their 2018 retained player list, the Daredevils have decided to retain three players, Rishabh Pant, Chris Morris and Shreyas Lyer.
Both Pant and Lyer are two young Indian players who have very bright futures ahead of them. The Daredevils have done well to keep them, and will be using them to build around, not only this season but also for the next few seasons. Both are very good with the bat, and Pant has the added bonus of being able to keep wicket which makes him very valuable to the Daredevils in the IPL.
Morris adds great experience to this team and he can contribute with both bat and ball. He bats down the order and can hit the ball a long way so if he comes in for the final few overs he can do some real damage in a short space of time. He can also do some damage with the ball, he is a very good bowler and expect to see him lead the Daredevils in wickets taken this season.
During the IPL 2018 auction, the Daredevils added to those three players, and gave themselves a very good batting line up, as well as a good seam attack. At the top of the order, Gautham Gambhir, Jason Roy and Colin Munro will be challenged with scoring a lot of runs. All three have the ability to score quickly, and put up big numbers, so if they get going the opposition need to watch out.
When it comes to their bowling attack, their pace bowling attack is very strong and capable of bowling anyone out cheaply. Kagiso Rabada is the main man for their attack, he is an exceptional bowler and will take many wickets with his variations in the T20 format. Alongside him the Daredevils have Mohammed Shami, Trent Boult and Chris Morris, all are experienced and know how to take wickets in this format of the game, so they can play key roles in any success the Daredevils have.
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.
