They also have talented youngster Ishan Kishan who is in great form. Moreover they took Yuvraj Singh, who might not play all the matches, but his experience will surely matter.
Moreover they have world’s best bowler Jasprit Bumrah. He will be accompanied with Lasith Malinga and Jason Behrendorff who can give early strikes. Moreover they have young spinner Mayank Markande who has proved his worth.
Along with him Mumbai Indians have excellent all-rounders in the likes of Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Ben Cutting and Kieron Pollard. These all-rounders have the ability to win the game single-handedly any day.
Reasons why Delhi Capitals can win IPL 2019 title
Even after playing 11 seasons, Delhi hasn’t made any serious impact. But this year they seem to be fully geared up. They have bought Shikhar Dhawan who is a solid T20 batsman. He will open the innings with youngster Prithvi Shaw.
They will be followed by Shreyas Iyer and Colin Munro. The Kiwi batsman is quite destructive and is currently 2nd in ICC T20 rankings. Iyer is also in good touch which is evident by his recent 147 off 55 balls. This is the highest score recorded by an Indian in a T20 match.
Delhi also has destructive wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. Along with him they also have Chris Morris, Colin Ingram, Trent Boult and Sandeep Lamichhane. Morris is one of the best all-rounders while Lamichhane is one of the best spinners.
Boult, along with Kagiso Rabada, Jayant Yadav and Keemo Paul can set the stage on fire. Delhi surely has the most balanced side this year. Moreover with many foreign players set to play half the league because of World Cup, Delhi can gain an advantage with the local talent they have and win the title.
