1. Injuries to their key players
Before the IPL 11 started, Delhi Daredevils were dealt a major blow as their key fast bowler Kagiso Rabada was ruled out due to an injury. He had played a key role in South Africa’s test series win over Australia in South Africa. Rabada would have made a huge difference with his attacking bowling.
Delhi Daredevils had to deal another major blow when their star all-rounder Chris Morris was ruled out of the tournament due to an injury. It left them with little bowling options as Liam Plunkett could not fill in the shoes of Rabada.
