New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils on Tuesday, appointed swashbuckling England batsman Kevin Pietersen as their captain for the upcoming IPL with wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik as his deputy.
"Kevin Pietersen will captain the all new look Delhi Daredevils during the seventh edition of the Pepsi Indian Premier League. Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik would be the vice-captain," the Daredevils said in a statement.
The 33-year-old former England skipper was expected to take over as captain given his formidable reputation as a T20s batsman. He was named the 'Man of the Tournament' in the 2010 World T20 Championship for helping England bag their maiden crown.
