The Delhi Daredevils have had a very poor start to their campaign in the 2018 edition of the Indian Premier League. Coming in to the tournament, they had high hopes of changing their fortunes in the season. Over the recent editions of the tournament, they have been the only side that has failed to make it to the business end in the last five years. And as the things stand out this season, it is apparent that the Daredevils might fail to make the cut again.

If they wish to change their fortunes, they have to pull their socks sometime soon this season. They have very little time left and hence, every game that they play from hereon will be an important fixture for them. Despite having a very firm leader in Gautam Gambhir, the team has failed to come up with a collective show. They have had a failed top order this season, their all-rounders have not clicked yet, and the Indian firepower in the bowling department seems to be lacking.

Amidst this backdrop, the mid-season IPL Transfer Window comes as a big opportunity for the Delhi Daredevils to make a few quick amendments. They know what has been lacking for them this season and hence, will have some names in their minds to target at the transfers. The transfer window will run from the 27th match of the season till the playoffs. Here we try to pick five such players who the Daredevils would want to rope in during the transfers.

Here are the 5 players Delhi Daredevils will target in the transfer window:

The Delhi Daredevils have had a big struggle with their all-rounders department in the season. Chris Morris, the hitherto mainstay of the middle-order, has failed to deliver in either of the departments and Dan Christian has lacked the shine too. Hence, the Daredevils will like to have a handy all-rounder like Mohammad Nabi in their side.

Nabi is currently with the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp. He has played just one match, as on April 24, 2018, and hence could play a maximum of two games by the time the transfer window begins. If the double Ds manage to get his services,  it will be a big deal for them. Nabi’s off-spinners will certainly add value to the bowling department as well.
