Delhi Daredevils
Going by the talent at their disposal, Delhi Daredevils disappointed their fans by not progressing beyond the semi-final stage in the first three years of the tournament. Back then, the Daredevils, owned by GMR Industries, had a genuine of mix of match-winners in their squad. Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Tillakaratne Dilshan, AB de Villiers, Dinesh Karthik and Paul Collingwood formed the batting core of the side. The bowling department was shored up by Dirk Nannes, Glenn McGrath and Daniel Vettori. Yet the Daredevils, surprisingly, failed to reach the IPL final even once in three years.

Virender Sehwag was the only player to be retained by the Daredevils ahead of the IPL Player Auction 2011. Their big buy at the auction was Irfan Pathan who commanded a whopping USD 1.9 million. Some of their other impressive buys were Morne Morkel, David Warner and Umesh Yadav. Australian pacer Andrew McDonald made his way back to the Daredevils squad through the auction.
