Gautam Gambhir returns to Delhi Daredevils as captain


Gautam Gambhir will return to the IPL franchise based in his home city of Delhi as their captain ahead of the 2018 season.

“I am more excited than I have ever been,” Gambhir said on his return to Daredevils.

When he left Daredevils after 2010 – having led them that year – Gambhir was named Kolkata Knight Riders captain and led them to two IPL titles in seven years.

Though he played only three seasons for Daredevils, Gambhir maintained an affinity for the side. Last year, even before any decisions on player retention were made, Gambhir had said he wanted to finish with a stint at Daredevils. “I think my heart is still with Delhi,” Gambhir said last year. “I played for three years for Delhi. Somewhere, deep within my heart, I’d love to finish with Delhi. Though I am the captain of Kolkata Knight Riders, and would want them to win it for the third time, but since I’m a Delhi boy too, I obviously want Delhi Daredevils to do well as well.”
