The Greatest Master Blaster Vivian Richards joined Delhi Daredevils for an ambassadorial and advisory role.
“I am looking forward to working with the Delhi Daredevils this season,” Sir Viv said after his maiden interaction with the team. “I know the team has many players of proven quality and others who have immense talent and hunger to succeed at this level and higher. It will be a great experience for me to be their sounding board and inspire them to deliver quality performances.”
Delhi Daredevils Team Mentor TA Sekar said “There are a number of youngsters in the squad who can make the most of the opportunity to interact with Sir Viv and evolve as cricketers. He was keen to be with the team at the start of the season but he had prior commitments and could join us only now.”
Delhi will be hoping that with his inclusion, their dry run in IPL ends as they have lost all 6 matches played so far and are now nearing a stage where they can not afford to lose more.
