  1. The void of Shreyas iyer in middle order will affect .

  2. Idiot gambhir picking woakes ahead of nortje

  3. I still do think Pant can't be called a finisher by any means…….he is a hit or miss kind of a player………he usually needs a bit of time to flourish…….u can't expect him to score quick runs under pressure…….so playin stoinis at the top is a gamble……since there is no established finisher in that squad…….

  4. Shikhar Dhawan
    Prithvi Shaw
    Steve Smith
    Ajinkya Rahane
    R Ashwin
    Kagiso Rabada
    Anrich nortje

    With Dhawan as the most run getter

  5. Delhi lost 5 matches on a trot last season due to batting collapses, they need Steve Smith at 3

  6. No need of Smith, not very good in IPL.
    Plus, it will waste one overseas player option.

  7. gauti's reply seemed really sore that just because it's Ricky pointing so steve smith will start, I mean steve had just one bad season and his stocks are so down, that's pathetic. I really want to hear GG's reaction if smith hits a century or sets the stage on fire by winning games for DC because on batting decks everyone can bat, but when DC will go to slow pitches then hetmyr is good for nothing. people have compared hetmyr that he has flair and strokeplay of brian Lara but what I see him is as a pure slogger, I still remember those days of Lara that everyone used to say " you can get the whole west indies team out but not brian Charles Lara". I certainly see the flair of Lara in smith just because of the way he bats, he makes your life hell as a bowler and captain about how to set the field for this guy.

  8. Dc 11

  9. I don't understand how people still say play stoinis as opener .
    How come someone say that given stoinis is the only estabilised finisher along with pant in the middle order

  10. Every other expert is talking about playing Hetmyer and here Cricinfo panelists are certain that Smith would start .
    I personally like Smith but I like Rahane too . Don't know what pointing thinks .
    DC would definitely finish In top 2.

  11. Best Playing xi batting till 8 and 6 balling option
    Smith / Hetmyer

  12. Agarkar has picked kkr 2nd , DC third , obviously add mi to that

  13. Steyn has picked mi, DC, rcb till now . Guessing SRH

  14. Ajinkya should be made captain

  15. GG prediction till now mi, DC, rcb in top 4 so SRH might be his 2nd team with mi

  16. Don't know why smith is considered as a bad t20 player. He plays similar to virat and kane but in unorthodox style. He has done well for so many years for rr and rps.

  17. 1. Shaw
    2. Dhawan
    3. Hetmyer
    4. Pant
    5. Stoinis
    6. Axar
    7. Rahane (use him as a floater/insurance policy) not actual No. 7
    8. Ashwin
    9. Rabada
    10. Nortje
    11. Ishant

  18. My prediction
    1 and 2 mi and srh
    3 dc
    4 rcb

  19. I feel stey is right dc will finish in 3 rd
