In the bowling department as well, they have one of the most reliable T20 bowlers, Morne Morkel, who makes use of his height and gets the batsmen to dance around with his chin music bowling as well. Being a South African player, his presence helps the team even better, as he has been playing in such conditions ever since he picked up the red cherry from an early age. Other Indian bowlers are also good with the ball, such as Irfan Pathan and Umesh Yadav. They are good new ball bowlers, especially Pathan who moves the ball in and out initially.
In Naman Ojha, they have a good keeper who is an aggressive batsmen as well. The player can be used as a floater as he can play the anchor game as well as a pinch hitter. He excels in the latter. Andre Russell, a quality all rounder may not get a game every outing, but whenever he gets a chance to play, he would bring a fine balance with both his batting and bowling skills.
But, the Daredevils cannot be complacent, as the other teams in the championship are also equally good. Teams such as Perth Scorchers, Auckland Aces, Titans are strong contenders for the championship along with Daredevils.
