Boasting of T-20 specialists like Rishabh PantShreyas IyerColin Munroetc in the line-up, Delhi Capitals’ middle order is looking as solid as ever. Both Rishabh and Iyer had a fantastic IPL season last year.

While Iyer scored 411 runs in 14 matches, Rishabh notched up 684 runs in as many matches. The duo, currently, has been in fine form and one would expect them to replicate their performance in this year’s edition as well. 

#4  Lethal death bowlers

What now makes Delhi a lethal side is the ideal mix of aggressive batsmen with world-class death bowlers in the form of Kagiso RabadaTrent Boult, and Chris Morris.

For any team to dominate in the T-20 circuit, they must have potent death bowlers who can stop the flow of runs in the death overs and pick crucial wickets at the same time.

Delhi now boasts a good mix of batsmen and lethal fast bowlers and are looking as good a side as ever and can certainly fancy their chances this year.
