Delhi Daredevils Team 2018: Openers for IPL 2018 – Gautam Gambhir, Jason Roy/Colin Munro

Given the regulations of fielding four foreign players, Delhi Daredevils will need to decide between Colin Munro and Jason Roy as Gautam Gambhir is certain to open the innings for Delhi Daredevils. However, it is certain that whoever opens the innings for DD team 2018, he will certainly create some exciting DD news 2018 with their batting excellence.

Delhi Daredevils Middle Batting Order – Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Chris Morris

Delhi’s retention policy ahead of the IPL 2018 could pay rich dividends as they would have the luxury of playing two of India’s finest young prospects Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant in next season’s IPL.

Following that, Glenn Maxwell and Chris Morris will have the responsibility of finishing off the innings for Delhi Daredevils. Be it chasing a huge score or set a massive target in the crunch games, Delhi’s top and middle order batting is equipped to every possible situation.

Delhi Daredevils Bowlers for IPL 2018 – Chris Morris, Mohammed Shami, Kagiso Rabada, Trent Boult, Amit Mishra, Shahbaz Nadeem, Sandeep Lamichhane

Delhi will rely on Chris Morris to bowl his quota of 4 overs in every game to enjoy a successful IPL 2018 season. With Morris bowling his 4 overs and batting in top-6, Delhi will have a balanced team at their disposal.

Delhi’s other fast bowling options will be Mohd. Shami and Kagiso Rabada with Trent Boult being as the ideal backup option. In Amit Mishra, Delhi have a veteran IPL spinner who always manages to pick crucial wickets for his team.

Shahbaz Nadeem will be the second spinner Delhi Daredevils are most likely to field in their lineup with Vijay Shankar being asked to fill the role of the hard-hitting lower-order batsman who can also roll his arms over and bowl 2-3 overs. Nepals ’17-year-old leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane is also a part of DD Team 2018.

Delhi Daredevils Captain for IPL 2018 – Gautam Gambhir

Going into the IPL 2018 Auctions, it was never a secret that Delhi Daredevils and Gautam Gambhir wanted a reunion with the Franchise keen on bringing Gambhir back as their captain.

Gambhir led Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL titles and his experience as a captain and a top-order batsman will be key for Delhi’s chances for the upcoming Indian Premier League season.

Delhi Daredevils Coach for IPL 2018 – Ricky Ponting

Former Australian great Ricky Ponting will be in charge of Delhi Daredevils for IPL 2018 and would hope to work in tandem with Gautam Gambhir to bring out the best from the young Indian and overseas stars.

Ponting’s appointment was a major reason for Delhi to go and buy Maxwell as Ponting believes he can sort Maxwell’s confidence and bring him back in the reckoning for Australian national team’s selection.

Delhi Daredevils Key Players for IPL 2018 – Gautam Gambhir, Chris Morris, Glenn Maxwell, Rishabh Pant

Gautam Gambhir – More than his batting, Gambhir will be asked to bring his captaincy on show and lead Delhi Daredevils to a successful season at the IPL 2018. Gambhir wanted a return to his hometown club and is eager to replicate the success he had with Kolkata Knight Riders.

Chris Morris – There was a very sound logic in adding Chris Morris to DD playing 11 ahead of the IPL Auctions. Morris is one of the cleanest hitters of a cricket ball and his bowling in the death overs will be Delhi’s key weapon going into the new IPL season. Morris will be responsible to finish the innings for Delhi and his rapid strike rate could turn tight games in Delhi’s favor,

Glenn Maxwell – I wonder if there is any player more maverick than the Aussie Glenn Maxwell. On his day, Maxwell is capable of winning matches on his own and given his recent disappointments with Australia, the all-rounder will be keen to prove his doubters wrong, wearing the Delhi Daredevils jersey.

Rishabh Pant – The budding Indian wicketkeeper has attracted a lot of eyeballs in recent months as he is seen as the aptest replacement for MS Dhoni in limited overs cricket for India. Pant is capable of playing blinders and take the game away from oppositions. Batting at number 4 will allow Pant enough time to pace his innings and be the key player for DD next season.

Delhi Daredevils Predictions for IPL 2018

Let us not get into the same trap like every season as Delhi Daredevils have always managed to assemble a decent looking squad at the auction but when it comes to the tournament, the DD playing 11 have been nothing but a massive disappointment.

However, one major change this time is the unquestionable leadership qualities of Gautam Gambhir and Ricky Ponting who have previously led their teams to World Cup and IPL glory. If Gambhir-Ponting duo manages to find early momentum, Delhi could cause a major upset and who knows may even win that first elusive IPL title. Stay tuned for Delhi Daredevils Predictions for IPL 2018.
