Delhi Daredevils (DD) is the perennial underperformers of the Indian Premier League history.
Delhi went into the IPL 2018 auction with three players retained before the auction. They retained Chris Morris, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer for IPL 2018. During the auction, DD went after the players they wanted in order to perform wonderfully in the upcoming IPL 11 season.
They bought Gautam Gambhir for Rs 2.8 crore, bringing back Gambhir to his home side. They also acquired some foreign talents like Jason Roy, Glenn Maxwell, and T20I record holder Colin Munro for decent prices in the auction. Though they lost Pat Cummins to Mumbai Indians, they bought Trent Boult in his place, along with Kagiso Rabada. They also bought Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane, making him the first Nepal player to get picked in IPL.
On the Indian front, they bought Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Vijay Shankar, and Gurkeerat Singh. They also bought U19 stars Prithvi Shaw, and Manjot Kalra amongst others.
Delhi Daredevils already look a formidable side that can go a long way in the 2018 season of Indian Premier League.
