IPL 2018: 5 players who would have been ideal replacements for Chris Morris
Delhi Daredevils suffered a major blow when Chris Morris was ruled out of IPL 2018. Junior Dala has been named as his replacement.
Delhi have won only one of their IPL matches this season and in my opinion, Dala is not the ideal candidate to improve their fortunes.
Here are 5 players who should have replaced Morris instead of Dala:
#1 James Faulkner
The Australian all-rounder went unsold in this year's auction at a base price of 2 crores. Faulkner, however, can be the ideal replacement for Morris being a bowling all-rounder himself.
Capable of bowling at the death and contributing quick runs down the order, Faulkner would have been able to turn around Delhi's campaign.
Faulkner has picked up 59 wickets in 60 IPL matches and has represented Kings XI and Pune Warriors among others in past seasons.
