The Delhi Daredevils (Now Capitals) has always shown promise but never won an IPL trophy. They are a bit like the ‘South Africa’ of International Cricket if you come to think of it- Always crumble whenever it’s time to separate the boys from the men.
Meanwhile, the Delhi franchise seems to be quite desperate to turn it around this season as they have made quite a few changes to their squad- The most prominent one being the fact that they have even changed the name of the franchise! Now let’s rewind back a bit to 2018.
The left-handed Gautam Gambhir who lost some form last season stepped down as the Captain of the Team and as a result, the young Shreyas Iyer was given the responsibility. While there is no doubt that Iyer impressed one and many with the willow in hand, he was unable to turn it around for Delhi as a captain. Yes, it was too late irrespective but the fact that it was an ‘SOS’ call and to top it up- They have also paid to acquire the services of Shikhar Dhawan this season, there is a serious chance that the left-handed batsman might become the new Captain of the team.
Considering they have never won the IPL before, they would be looking to bank on the experience of Shikhar Dhawan and according to a few reports doing the rounds- There is a serious chance for that to happen. Nothing is confirmed though and we would request you to not jump the gun.
Meanwhile, India and Australia are in the middle of a great test match with the visitors declaring at 443-7 leaving the visitors with a daunting task ahead. The good news for the Australian Cricket Team though is the fact that the pitch doesn’t have a lot of demons but Virat Kohli and his men will certainly believe that this is their best ever chance and we will leave it to that.
