Strengths of DD IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018
The fast bowling line up for the team has shaped up well with their acquisition of Kagiso Rabada and Mohd. Shami. The dynamic allrounder Chris Morris has been the backbone of the team in past and will continue the role. The team looked sharp on their spin attack as well as they have ayant Yadav and Shabaz Nadeem along with experienced Amit Mishra, who is the only player to have 3 hat-tricks in IPL. They also picked up the promising U-19 players like Prithvi Shaw and Majot Kalra who has recently won the world cup for India. The surprise buy of Nepali spinner Sandeep Lamichhane is also seen as a smart move by the franchise.
Weakness of DD IPL Squad 2018 for VIVO IPL 2018
The squad of DD is filled with many top order batsmen which makes their middle order look weak and incompetent enough to handle critical situations. Like KXIP they also have too many openers in Gautam Gambhir, Colin Munro, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer, which will be a problem again. The trouble to get the best batting order will make the team unstable and low on confidence. There will be added pressure on Glenn Maxwell and he may fall out like Angelo Mathews did in past few seasons.
