Substantial Delhi Daredevils


The team which has seen a lot of ups and downs in terms of their core stability is Delhi Daredevils. With the likes of Sehwag, Gambhir, Nehra, and Mishra, Delhi started off their campaign in 2008 as one of the favorites to win the championship. However, they just fell short of a couple of steps to clinch the title.

To further strengthen the things next year, Delhi signs in Dirk Nannes the quicky from Australia. Under the leadership of Gambhir DD topped the table and yet again dropped short of their maiden championship title.

From 2010 until 2017, Delhi has faced a lot of criticism for not performing up to their standards. Reaching playoffs only once in a span of 8 years is a record that needs to be flushed down the gutter. 2012, was one of their successful seasons among the last eight, thanks to the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardena, and Ross Taylor. 

With Delhi having a capricious core, it was all up to the management to establish a steady and a solid core; and they have done some decent shopping by leveraging some great deals at this year's auction.

2018 Arsenal:

Return of Gambhir after his association with KKR for quite some time is just the boost that Delhi wanted. There are as many as 6 openers in the Delhi Squad, starting from the Captain Gambhir to the latest sensation Prithvi Shaw. However, Gambhir is likely to open with either Jason Roy or Colin Munro, followed by Shreyas Iyer. The middle order looks solid with the likes of Maxwell, Pant, and Morris.

With a decent set of all-rounders like Vijay Shankar, Jayant Yadav, and Dan Christian, Delhi looks a proper batting unit.

Kagiso Rabada is likely to lead the bowling attack with Mohammad Shami, Amit Mishra, and Shahbaz Nadeem. They also have some good reserves like Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, and Harshal Patel.

Delhi has also focussed on some of latest sensations this time around by adding the lads like Prithvi Show, Manjot Kalra, and the talk of the town in Nepal: Sandeep Lamichhane.

With the Australian great Ricky Pointing being appointed as the head coach, Delhi is likely to leave a mark in this season of IPL after a decade from its inception.


Delhi's first encounter is against Kxip on 8th of April. Will they start their campaign with a win or not?

Only time will answer. Until then you share your thoughts on this Delhi squad for IPL 2018.

En-route English Soil

The only country where he hasn't sparked up to his potential, the only nation where he likes to quench his thirst for runs, the only place where Indian fans would love to see him score big is England and our captain Kohli is all set to begin his county stint with Surrey.

With this news rolling out in the social media many of his fans are gearing up to witness their hero in the county colors. Surrey not only managed to bag the big brand Virat for a month they managed to get him for a nominal value.

While BCCI is skeptical about Surrey managing Virat's image, they agreed to keep the promotions at minimum and focus more on cricket.

Indian skipper will feature in at least six matches starting from June 1st. Both Virat and Alec Stewart (Surrey's director of cricket) expressed their happiness.
