Delhi to Start Afresh







Pin It



After average performances in the first four editions of the IPL, Delhi Daredevils can be termed underachievers, considering their performance in the last four seasons, but after having added new and young faces to their squad considerably in this year’s IPL auctions, there is a reason to believe that they won’t fare as poorly.

With the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardene, Andre Russell, Doug Bracewell and Ross Taylor in their ranks Delhi look a balanced outfit. If these players play to potential, Delhi can consider themselves title contenders.

Delhi will want to begin their IPL5 run with a win today against Kolkata Knight Riders in Kolkata. It’s the second match of the  IPL 5th edition between Delhi and Kolkata.

Irfan Pathan could be the game-changer for Delhi as his hard-hitting in the death overs and gentle medium pace can play a crucial part. On the bowling front, Morne Morkel and Umesh Yadav, who had a good tour of Australia, will be the key to Delhi’s fortunes. Varun Aaron, who missed the entire Australian tour and the Asia Cup due to a stress fracture on the back, will be keen to make a good impression. There is also the South African allrounder Roelof van der Merwe, a matchwinner with bat and ball.

Team looks strong on paper. It remains to be seen how they perform on the field.
