DSG actually has a solid core and is a team that will look to progress well in the tournament. The squad comprises a solid domestic core that includes skipper Quinton de Kock, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Heinrich Klaasen and Junior Dala. West Indian all-rounders Jason Holder, Kyle Mayers and Keemo Paul will also play for this squad. Sri Lankan cricketers Akila Dananjaya and Dilshan Madushanka will also play a huge role, and will also have the services of Reece Topley. The team has a good bowling attack but there could be a few issues in the middle order with the bat. However, if the bowling all-rounders can give some assurance with the bat, this squad can go a long way.
