Delhi Capitals- SWOT Analysis and Game plan

Recommended Posts

Like every year here i bring the SWOT analysis for every team , Starting with :dc:

 

Exod4CSXMAAQyho?format=jpg&name=small

 

 

Strength 

 

  • Very solid indian core- Pant, shaw, dhawan, ashwin, rahane, ishant, umesh, Amit mishra .....to do well in IPL u need a good indian core
  • Rabada-Nortje
  • Form of Shaw n Pant 
  • Solid 5 bowlers in which 5th choice wud be - Ishant/umesh/mishra (what players to have for horses for courses )
  • Dhawan becomes an Asset in IPL 
  • Good backups 
  • Good mix of Left-Right batsman 

 

Weakness- 

 

  • They dont have someone like a russell, pandya , pollard at 6 or 7. With iyer injury i think stonis will bat high . They have picked ripal n lalit for the power hitter role but they lack experience 
  • Temptation to play Rahane n Smith in absence of Iyer which cud work as speed breakers for them 

 

Opportunity

 

  • For ashwin n dhawan to reclaim their spot in indian t20 side
  • Pant to prove his captaincy
  • Shaw to be back in India reckoning 
  • Potential team that can beat  

 

Threat

 

  • captaincy can affect pant's batting also 
  • their batsman wont enjoy slow surfaces 

 

 

Gameplan - with iyer gone i think they shud have hetymer n pant at 3 n 4 and play attacking cricket, MI has already shown hows its done. Dhawan can bat the way he does in that lineup 

 

 

  Plan A (attacking) Plan B (Safe) Plan C (batting heavy) Plan D (lower order cushion)
1 Dhawan Dhawan Dhawan Dhawan
2 Shaw Shaw Shaw Shaw
3 Hetymer Smith Smith/ Hetymer Smith/ Hetymer
4 Pant (c n wk) Pant (c n wk) Pant (c n wk) Pant (c n wk)
5 Stonis Stonis Stonis Stonis
6 Lalit yadav/ Ripal Lalit yadav/ Ripal Billings Lalit yadav/ Ripal
7 Axar Axar Axar woakes/curran
8 Ashwin Ashwin Ashwin Axar
9 Rabada Rabada Rabada Ashwin
10 Nortje Nortje Ishant Rabada
11 Ishant/ Umesh/ Mishra/ Meriwala Ishant/ Umesh/ Mishra/ Meriwala Umesh/ Mishra/ Meriwala Ishant/ Umesh/ Mishra/ Meriwala

Yep first game they'll probably go with Woakes, Curran and Mishra. Woakes is a decent backup but curran could become a liability. But does give them extra batting depth 

Deserve to lose if they go with Curran. Avesh Khan is a vastly superior local alternative. They can firm their batting up with one of the foreign import instead.

play one among curran n woakes , no need to play both instead play billings 

Need 2 fast bowling replacements for Nortje and Rabada... Might also decide to go with Umesh and Ishant both actually.. In that case, Smith at 3 and Billings at 6..seems a decent first XI

 

I'll go with 

Shaw

Dhawan

Smith

Pant

Stoinis

Billings 

Woakes

Mishra

Ashwin 

Ishant 

Umesh
