IPL 2020: 3 Potential opening pairs for Delhi Capitals

The time has come. It is less than 50 days remaining for the greatest league of all time to kick-start. The excitement is slowly spreading across the country and the fans and the franchisee are getting ready for another roller coaster ride of a season.

There is a saying that half of the battle is won if a team undergoes a successful IPL auction. IPL 2020 auction on December 19, 2019, for the year 2020 saw some interesting picks by all the teams and some strategies already been laid out by the franchisee to win the glorious cup.

A team with no haters
Here we dig deep about a team that has developed into an exciting outfit and also one of the rarest teams to have minimal or no haters. The team is led by a young sensation who also happens to be the Indian #4 batsman Shreyas Iyer. Yes, the team is none other than the Delhi Capitals.

Top-heavy team
Delhi Capitals is one team that has an enormous talent pool in their squad. Each and everyone in their squad has the ability to become a global Superstar in their own way. They have as many as 6 ready-made openers in Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Ajinkya Rahane, and Jason Roy in their 21 man squad which is the most by any team. The tough task for the coach Ricky Ponting will be to choose the perfect opening combination that can give box office starts to the team.

Here we look at 3 possible opening combinations that DC could employ in this year’s IPL

Prithvi Shaw-Shikhar Dhawan
The tried and tested combo for the Delhi Capitals. The pair that they played the whole of last season. The pair that cannot be termed as a success but definitely not a failure. The U19 world cup winning captain who has been a revelation in the Indian set up and the experienced Shikhar Dhawan who will be hungry to prove that he is no slouch in the T20 cricket will be a deadly combination as there is no shortage of experience and excitement.
