Delhi Daredevils is the franchise representing the city of Delhi in Indian Premier League. The franchise had been owned by the GMR Group in 2008. Since the inauguration of IPL Delhi Daredevils is a part of the cash rich tournament.
The franchise had been owned by spending a huge amount of $84 million. The team has not won the IPL title until now, but ends two time Semifinalists in 2008 and 2009 and in the season IPL5 (2012) finished in Play-offs.
Virender Sehwag was the icon player of Delhi Daredevils team and was also the captain of the side during the first two seasons. But in 2010 he resigned and passed on the leadership to his opening partner Gautam Gambhir. Sehwag appointed as captain of the team again when Gambhir left the team for Kolkata Knight Riders in the fourth edition. Later in 2012 Mahela Jayawardane was appointed as the new captain of the Delhi Daredevils.
Last year during IPL6 DD did not show very much impression and finished in Group stage. Delhi only won 3 matches out of 16 played and didn’t win any away games in the season.
So, for this year of IPL seven season Delhi Daredevils want to came up with a fresh teams. That’s why the franchise has not retained any players before auction. They did not retained Virender Sehwag also, now after auction it will be sure. With no players retained, the team will have the maximum right-to-match cards among all the franchises at the auction i.e., three. They will also have their full purse of Rs 600 million (approx US$9.6) to spend at the players auction.
The team may be come up this year with some new players. Now it is time to show the Delhi Daredevils in a new shape in IPL7.
