Emerging overseas players ain't a category IPL teams go afer often. But I think Delhi dropping Shaw and Rossouw will be good for other teams like Hyderabad that need a solid opener and Rajasthan Royals that need an aggressive middle order batter.

It baffles out when Rajasthan Royals didn’t do well because as a team be it on paper or on the field it looks like a team to beat.This team of RR should have been trophy lifters.
