The biggest weakness for the Delhi Capitals is their middle order and this can create some huge issues for them in the majority of the tournament. The team includes some amazing bowling all rounders but when it comes to the batting all rounders Marcus Stonis is the only reliable name there. This puts a lot of pressure on the openers of Delhi Capitals to not lose early wickets and also Shreyas Iyer to do the majority of heavy lifting when it comes to the middle order batting.
