IPL 2017 teams: Delhi Daredevils full squad

Delhi Daredevils have been perennial underachievers in the IPL. After their playoff finish in 2012, when they looked the favourites to win the crown, they have not had a happy story to share from the IPL.

The loss of the South African duo of Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy is certainly something the Delhi franchise could have done without, but they still contain enough firepower in their squad to do really well this season.

The squad is a fine mixture of talent from India and abroad, with a number of strategic buys adding to their strength.

So while the team boasts of quality pacers like Pat Cummins, who was in scorching form in the recently-concluded India vs Australia Test series, Mohammad Shami and Kagiso Rabada, the spin department are well-manned by Shahbaz Nadeem and Amit Mishra. Young guns like Rishabh Pant and Sreyas Iyer add to the depth of the squad, and captain Zaheer Khan, even at 38, has enough in the tank to trouble the batsmen.

Delhi also have the luxury of calling upon the services of quality batsmen like Karun Nair, Sam Billings and Aditya Tare, and all-rounders like Angelo Mathews and Carlos Brathwaite of the 'remember the name' fame.

The mentorship of Rahul Dravid is an added boon for the Daredevils, and there is no reason the Delhi franchise can't do much better than they have in the IPL's nine-year-old history so far.

DD squad: Zaheer Khan(c), Angelo Mathews, Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Pat Cummins, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Mohammed Shami, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Amit Mishra, Shreyas Iyer, Sam Billings, Sanju Samson, Chris Morris, Carlos Brathwaite, Karun Nair, Rishabh Pant, Chama Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh.
