Former England captain Kevin Pietersen is confident of taking Delhi Daredevils to their first Indian Premier League title this year. Appointed captain on Tuesday, the 33-year-old power-hitter said that the team has the right combination to overwhelm other teams in the tournament starting April 16 in the United Arab Emirates.
Pietersen joined Delhi Daredevils in 2012 and made an impact with his eight-match outing amassing 305 runs with an average of 61. He was recently bought once again in the auctions in February, for a whopping sum of Rs 9 crores. He will now have to justify his price tag with not just his prolific batting but through his leadership skills as well.
