In the 11th edition of IPL, Gautam Gambhir have entrusted the responsibility of the team Delhi Daredevils. According to Gambhir, this will be his last IPL, but this time his best efforts will be to make sure that, his domestic team Delhi will like to win the title of this season. Gautam Gambhir was the captain of Delhi team in the first three seasons of IPL, and after that, he joined KKR. Under the captaincy of Gambhir, KKR changed the fate, and he was able to win the title twice. Once again this year, Delhi Daredevils bought Gambhir in the IPL auction and handed him the captaincy of the team. Once again he will try to make his team champion.
Gambhir said that in IPL, I started my home team from Delhi and I want that from here I can finish my IPL career but with the title. He said that this time a lot of good players have been included in the Delhi team. At present, the team has a wonderful coach as Ricky Ponting, who has given his team twice in the World Cup. Ponting is an experienced and highly aggressive coach, and team will benefit from him. All team players are fully prepared to do something better. The team’s players have more contribution than the captain in making any team champion. Delhi team is the best player at the moment, and we just need to do good at the right moment.
The poor record of the last ten seasons of IPL does not matter to the new coach Ricky Ponting. He believes that with the new players the team will be able to get their first title this time. Ponting, who won Australia twice, said, “I want to believe that our players will perform well.” If they can take our plans on the field then why we can not win. Delhi was successful in reaching the semifinals in two of its first three phases of the league. Delhi will start his journey on April 8th, by playing against KINGS XI PUNJAB, who is leading by Indian spinner R.Ashwin.
