1. Delhi Capitals (DC)
Rassie Van der Dussen is a seasoned batter who has the ability to erupt in the middle order. He scored an unbeaten 75 off just 46 balls in June of this year’s match against India in Delhi to lead South Africa to victory. He has a lot of domestic cricket experience in South Africa, and the young players in the Delhi Capitals squad will definitely benefit from his knowledge.
The Delhi Capitals still have 19.45 crores in their bank account, so they must work to fill most of the team’s holes. Since the middle-order batter is quite fragile, the Rishabh Pant-led side must concentrate on purchasing quality batters.
