IPL 2018: Gautam Gambhir appointed captain of Delhi Daredevils

Gautam Gambhir was released by KKR and he was bought by Delhi Daredevils for Rs 2.8 crore at the IPL player auction

The 36-year-old has played in every Ranji Trophy match this season, and was one of the main factors behind Delhi's march into the final. As you all may know that he served Kolkata Knight Riders for seven years in Indian Premier League and now they are on another side.

"Gauti (Gautam Gambhir) has been a leader for a very long time", Ponting said.

Students from Novi High School and Novi Middle School plan to participate in the walkout, and teachers have a plan. I can see this as the start of a new movement. "I think this movement has taken on a life of its own".

Commenting on his appointment, the southpaw said,"It is a huge honour to once again captain DD". To get this responsibility is a way for me to give back to the sport in the city. So we thought it would be good to have him as captain working with some of the young Indian players. "It is also going to be great to work in unison with Ricky, an absolute champion himself", he said. Gambhir was brought by Rs 2.8 crore during the IPL auction in January keeping in mind the captaincy role, a decision that was confirmed by the franchise on Tuesday. He said that it won't be hard to manage the players as the price tag is not in the players' hands.

"He has a big personality, but it is the drive behind the outward confidence, which I think will inspire the rest of the team". Gambhir, himself, has expressed his desire to finish with a stint at Delhi Daredevils, in the past.

Speaking to news agency PTI, Bhaker was quoted saying, "I was playing those sports because I love bashing my opponents". Since that day, the range has been her favourite place where she practices for four to five hours every day.

Delhi have assembled a solid looking unit this season and Gambhir is the right choice to lead the side.

Now, for the IPL 2018, the charismatic captain is back with his home franchise Daredevils to play the last part of his career in front of his own people. Both Ricky [Ponting] and Gauti have spoken to each other. "I am glad that they are both on the same page", he added. Daredevils is scheduled to open its campaign against Kings XI Punjab, at the Ferozeshah Kotla ground on April 8.
