Delhi Capitals were definitely the best team at the auction table. They got great players at bargain price and have made a super squad. Under Ricky Ponting and Rishabh Pant, they are definitely one of the title contenders.
Strongest XI :
Rishabh Pant ©️ (wk)
Their top order is star-studded, possibly the best this season.The middle is a bit shaky with Pant being only the reliable IPL batsman. Marsh and Powell are yet to establish themselves in the league.Ripal Patel,Sarfaraz Khan and Lalit Yadav may be tried. Their lower middle order is excellent with Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur giving explosive options. Overall, their batting definitely seems like a bowler’s nightmare. Their spin is unique with Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav, both left-armers and in good hands under Ricky Ponting. Vicky Ostwal gives a good option from the bench. Lalit Yadav can be brought on as well. Their pace is also one of the best. Three proven match-winners in Shardul Thakur, Anrich Nortje, and Chetan Sakariya. Mitchell Marsh and Rovman Powell are also bowling options. Their bench has a lot of depth in Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Mustafizur Rahman, Lungisani Ngidi and Khaleel Ahmed. Overall, they have a great eleven and proven match-winners. Every department has specialists with great leaders.
Predicted finish - 1st
