IPL 2018: Team Preview and Player List of Delhi Daredevils
Delhi Daredevils looking for the push ahead
In any classroom, there is always one student who seems brilliant and talented but on the mark sheet, he comes off as an average student. For all the brilliance and all the potential, there seems to be something missing. This has been the story of Delhi Daredevils in the 10 seasons of IPL so far.
Delhi Daredevils Indian Premier League Team’s List of Names
Looking at the list of names of those who have played for Delhi Daredevils in these 10 seasons of Indian Premier League, one has to say that they have been among the best teams to have ever appeared in the IPL tournament. Some of the statistics go to prove that too.
In the first 5 seasons of IPL, the Delhi Daredevils ended at the summit of the IPL table on two different occasions, in 2009 and 2012.

Unfortunately for the Delhi Daredevils, the piece of paper listing their achievements will not show anything more. Today, the Capital-based franchise stands as one of the only two teams who has never made the final of the Indian Premier League. Until 2014, they shared that discreditable acclaim with the Kings XI Punjab. Shocking everyone, it was Kings XI Punjab who managed to get the monkey off its back first. Three years have gone by, and the Delhi Daredevils are yet to achieve that feat.
They had Virender Sehwag, AB de Villiers. And later on, they brought in the likes of Dilshan, Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardene, and Ross Taylor. Add to that, they had the bowling line-up consisting of Daniel Vettori, Ashish Nehra, and Dirk Nannes.
But when the going got tough, everything went wrong for the team. Their talents and their strengths were never enough to overcome their one big weakness, that of temperament.

Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium will be the home venue for Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2018. Ricky Ponting takes over as the Coach of DD.
Gautam Gambhir Captain of Delhi Daredevils 2018
Gautam Gambhir has been a veteran cricketer both in Indian Premier League and for the Indian National Cricket team. He has previously led Kolkata Knight Riders to victory in two different seasons. Though the Daredevils are yet to formally announce their captain, Gambhir will be their likely choice. But now, his performance is on the downward trend.
Gautam Gambhir IPL auction Price in Indian Premier League 2018
Gautam Gambhir was bought for a low Rs. 2.8 crores, but it may turn out to be the buy of the season if Gambhir delivers on levels he is known for.
Update Mar 8, 2018: Gautam Gambhir announced the Captain of Delhi Daredevils 2018
Glenn Maxwell has been one of the best T20 players across the World for a long time. He holds the record for the highest international T20 score at 145. He is also the highest purchase for Delhi Daredevils at Rs. 9 crores.
Chris Morris is known for his all-around skills in the limited overs format. For an overseas player, he gets priced high at Rs. 7.1 crores. Mohammad Shami may seem like a great buy at just Rs. 3 crores. However, after his domestic problems went public recently, his contract was suspended by BCCI.
Kagiso Rabada has been one of the best bowlers in the World over the past year in all formats including IPL. He was one of the best grabs for the Delhi-based franchise at Rs. 4.2 crores.
With Gambhir in the side, likely as their captain, they might finally get the push they have been needing for so many years.
Mohammed Shami is almost set to miss IPL as DD has announced they’re consulting with BCCI to review his case. Shami has been leveled with serious domestic abuse and adultery charges by his wife Hasin Jahan. This is a big PR nightmare for the player, the franchise, and for BCCI. It will make sense if both DD and BCCI keep him out of play until he comes clean out of it.
Update March 24, 2018: Mohammed Shami has been cleared of all Match-Fixing related allegations by the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Mohammed Shami will be joining Delhi Daredevils Team and be playing IPL 2018
