After Kolkata Knight Riders announcing their leader for the upcoming season of IPL, the team of Delhi Daredevils has also published on Wednesday, their leader who will take and guide DD in the tournament. Gautam Gambhir has been chosen and appointed as the captain of the team ahead of IPL 2018.
Gautam Gambhir who has previously led Kolkata Knight Riders to win IPL two times was bought by Delhi Daredevils for Rs 2.8 crore at the IPL auction. Delhi Daredevils were right there on the top with buying many other heavy players for the league.
Gambhir will prove to be the best option for captaincy as far as his aggression to carry a team unit is concerned. The top order batsman has already represented Delhi Daredevils in Indian Premier League.
Being a local Delhi lad, he will get many opportunities to perform in his home ground, Feroz Shah Kotla. Gambhir is a real leader and can be an example for youngsters like Manjot Kalra and Prithvi Shaw.
Later today they did not only reveal their captain, but the team unit also releases their franchise jersey. It’s looking more ravishing than ever after. The team will play there first match against Kings XI Punjab which is on 8th of April.
Gambhir who is among the top leading run scorer of IPL can be very dangerous to bowl at. Gauti can destroy any bowling line up with his batting. He has more than 2700 runs in the tournament that makes him more vulnerable at the crease.
Kolkata would be very sad to let a player like Gautam Gambhir go, without even considering a second thought. TGhis season Delhi have made many new changes in the squad. They have bought many new and exciting players in the team like Colin Munro, Glenn Maxwell, Jason Roy with Rishabh Pant who can be lethal in the death overs.
