The only team in the league whose name and game is pure EVIL! Batting order that excites the ladies and a barrage of left arm bowlers that make any ordinary man facing wet his pants. Its quite disturbing that this mean side has not won the IPL yet. Missing out on both times in the knock-out phase. Perhaps, bcoz every member in the team seem to be on a suicide mission and is looking to hit every ball for a DLF maximum!! This has resulted in upset victories for the opponents and despite topping the table in season by a mile. One Gilly performance ended the journey for the Daredevils in the semis.

The Virender Sehwag left-arm fast bowler fetish just seems to have gone too far, they purchased yet another Lefty - Wayne (not Rooney) Parnell! Oh yea, Sehwag might not be the one leading the team but, he surely has got the men he would rather not face at the crease. Nannes will have stiff competition from Parnell, while Warner's form will be sweet poison for the Delhi team whose batting order already boasts of Sehwag, Gauti, AB DeVil, Dilshan, Karthik. Choosing the 4 foreign players may become a new concern for the team which has already kept the likes of Glenn Mc Grath, Paul Collingwood & Owais Shah on bench. They have also got in Moises Henriques from KKR in trade. No worries, no regrets as far as the squad is concerned. Champion stuff!

SQUAD:Amit Mishra, Ashish Nehra, AB de Villiers, Avishkar Salvi, David Warner, Dirk Nannes, Gautm Gambhir, Joginder Singh, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Mithun Manhas, Moises Henriques, Farveez Maharoof, Pradeep Sangwan, Rajat Bhatia, Sarabjeet Ladda, Sarandeep Singh, Dilshan, Umesh Yadav, Virender Sehwag, Yo Mahesh, Wayne Parnell, Yogesh Nagar.

STRENGTH: Explosive Batting order. Captaincy of Gauti.

WEAKNESS: Success or failure is just decided by the man on the boundary. HIT or MISS strategy!

WATCH OUT FOR: Warner, Dilshan, Parnell, Nannes... we shall just stop there.

  • Sehwag
  • Warner
  • Dilshan
  • Gauti©
  • DeVil
  • Karthik
  • Bahtia/Manhas
  • Parnell/Nannes
  • Mishra
  • Sangwan
  • Nehra

WAH SAY:Anything less than winning the championship will be tagged as failure. That pressure is sure to be on the players. Most likely to see Nannes & Parnell fight it out for one spot. Would have played both if Warner consistency is a question. Gauti playing lower will steady the team if needed. Overall, Excited from the looks of it. Dare to beat the Devils anyone?

p.s: Just a reminder of the famous bench-warmers the side has produced. A small tribute to those guys!
