The Grand Stand View

The underperformance of the franchise was an issue the organization sought to rectify this season with a massive rethink of player recruitment allowing the DD’s overhaul their roster somewhat and attempt to build a sustainable winning side with the resolve to ensure that losing does not become a specialty for the franchise. Their 11-game losing streak came to an end in emphatic style against the Kings XI Punjab and the two victories they have managed since will inspire confidence within the side going forward this season as they will know that things can only get better from where they are and that mini-goal of 5 wins in the season is more than attainable for the Dili Boys.
