Delhi Daredevils betting
It is safe to say Delhi Daredevils have underachieved in the Indian Premier League.
The franchise has never quite achieved great heights given the batting and bowling resources at its disposal.
The Daredevils have yet to lift the ultimate prize, but could the eleventh edition of tournament see them make a serious dash for the title?
Delhi did a lot of spending during the 2018 IPL auction as Glenn Maxwell, Jason Roy, and Colin Munro were signed. Jason Roy and Colin Munro are aggressive players who have a reputation of going berserk in the early overs of the innings.
Delhi has managed to reach the playoffs of the competition on three occasions (2008, 2009, and 2012), but a five-year drought from the postseason us unacceptable for any team in any sporting code, so expect things to change in 2018.

How will the Delhi Daredevils go in 2018?
Chris Morris, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer were the only three players retained by Delhi Daredevils for this year’s competition.
Gautam Gambhir will lead Delhi Daredevils in the coming season. The left-handed batsman was bought by Delhi for Rs 2.8 crore during 2018 IPL Auction. Glenn Maxwell turned out to be franchise’s biggest acquisition as he was bought for a whopping price of Rs 9 crore. Ricky Ponting is the Head Coach for Delhi Daredevils for this year’s competition.
Delhi has a good base of local players as Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, and Shreyas Iyer will be keen to make an impression in the league. The youngsters have done exceedingly well at the domestic level and will be keen to do well for the franchise. Last year Pant scored 366 runs in 14 games with a strike rate of 165.61 for the Delhi Daredevils. Shreyas Iyer also scored over 300 runs in the competition for Delhi last season.
Vijay Shankar also made his international debut for India in the recently concluded Nidahas Trophy played in Sri Lanka. The all-rounder did well in the tri-series with bat and ball. It will be interesting to see how he goes in this year’s competition.
Delhi Daredevils have two world-class all-rounders in their squad for the coming season. South Africa’s Chris Morris produced scintillating performances with bat and ball for Delhi. Morris has not played too many competitive games for South Africa in recent times, but would be keen to find form in the early phase of the competition. The other is Daniel Christian, who brings a lot of experience and value with bat and ball. The Australian has played in different T20 Leagues around the world and definitely brings depth to the squad.
Delhi has made interesting choices on the bowling front as Trent Boult, Sandeep Lamichhane, Jayant Yadav were signed. Kagiso Rabada and Mohammad Shami are two world-class bowlers for the franchise and with the addition of Boult, it makes them one of formidable bowling unit in the league.
