IPL 2018 : 3 tactical mistakes made by Delhi Daredevils

Rahul Tewatia is batting before Chris Morris this season
Shubham Kulkarni

#2 Vijay Shankar – What is his role in the side?

Vijay Shankar has bowled just 1 over in the 5 games so far

The question asked in the heading is a valid question. What is Vijay Shankar’s role in the team? He is not batting much and not even bowling. Maybe Gambhir is not confident about Shankar’s bowling, but then, why is he even in the playing eleven?

If Shankar is playing as a pure batsmen then he has to bat higher up the order. Tewatia is batting ahead of Shankar. Just before the IPL he played for India in the Nidahas Trophy and consistently bowled 4 overs every game. In this IPL he has just bowled a solitary over against KKR giving away 12 runs. DD have to find a good role for him pretty quickly or replace him by some other batsmen or all-rounder.
