IPL 2018: Delhi Daredevils - Statistical Preview

All the key stats and facts you all need to know about Delhi Daredevils.

Gautam Gambhir comes back home to lead Delhi in IPL 2018

The world's biggest and best T20 league, the Indian Premier League is around the corner. The 2018 season will be the 11th season of IPL and will be held from 7 April to 27 May 2018.

Delhi Daredevils or DD has been the most disappointing team of Indian Premier League for the past 5-6 years. Since 2010 they have finished at the bottom of the table thrice (2011, 2013 & 2014) and haven't qualified for playoffs since 2012. However, they can hope to do so this time around with Gautam Gambhir coming back to the team after a span of 6 years, as captain.

Here is a look at Delhi Daredevils's history :
