  1. Delhi Daredevils.

    I do like RCB squad too (bit top heavy AB, Virat and Mcullum/de cock with no fearsome finisher) but delhi is more balanced according to me, with a back up for every position. I believe they have considered all aspects such as:-

    Explosive openers :- Colin munro might not be a huge star but his record is phenomenal and has 3 T20I hundreds already. Jason Roy as a back up is equally good option. They got both of them for 3.4 cr combined (KKR got nitish rana for 3.2 cr) could be the bargain buy.
    Indian batting core :- They have got great indian batters with proper balance of youth and experience, aggression and calmness. Gambhir, iyer, pant, shaw, naman ojha are all capable to be in most squads. Pant especially is one to look for in the IPL 2018.
    Overseas finishers:- You can never really count glenn maxwell out. On his day he can change game on it’s head. Chris morris is equally dangerous, a genuine T-20 all rounder.
    Good spin options:- Feroz shah kotla might not be a rank turner it once used to be, but still having good spinners helps greatly in T-20. On the face of it, amit mishra might not excite many but he is no doubt a reliable experience option along with shabhaz nadeem (IPL veteran) and jayant yadav.
    International pace attack:- They have three international pace bowlers in shami, rabada and boult. All really fast and all really effective.
    I believe DD have all basis covered and will be a treat to watch with sensible gambhir and sensational pant.

    P.S. A KKR fan and I hope our thin, but full with impact players, squad out do all.
