In the 2014th edition of IPL, Kevin Pietersen was named as captain of Delhi Daredevils. Former England star was chosen as DD captain due to his superb T20 record. Though he missed the last edition due to injury but in 2012, he scored 305 runs at an outstanding average of 61.
“I feel incredibly honoured to have been asked to captain the Delhi Daredevils in this year’s IPL. I am very much looking forward to working alongside Gary Kirsten. We have a fantastic squad with a good blend of youth and experience and a brilliant coaching set up. We hope to bring our incredible fans a lot of happiness this season,” Pietersen said on his appointment as captain.
Delhi Daredevils have also named Dinesh Karthik as vice captain and Gary Kirsten as their coach for IPL 2014.
