Indian Premier League 2019: Delhi Daredevils Renamed To Delhi Capitals

Indian Premier League 2019 Delhi Daredevils Renamed To Delhi Capitals

Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Daredevils were on Tuesday renamed as Delhi Capitals and the announcement was made in a function in the capital by owners GMR Group and JSW Sports. Interestingly, the name Delhi capitals isn't original-there is a team by this name in the UBA (basketball) league in India. The franchise announced the news while unveiling their new name. Owner of Delhi team, GMR group entered into a 50-50 partnership with Mumbai-based steel company Jindal South West (JSW) Sports for the ownership of the team in 2018. There has also been a change of people handling Delhi- Sriram Srinath, who was with Sunrisers Hyderabad, has been hired to run the cricket operations.

According to reports JSW Sports - who bought a 50% stake in the franchise earlier this year - plan to revamp the franchise completely. The Delhi franchise has realeased former captain Gautam Gambhir ahead of IPL 2019 auctions. The fans believe Iyer is too young one for the role and Delhi need an experienced head along with coach Ricky Ponting to lead the side. They also released Gautam Gambhir, Mohammed Shami and Glenn Maxwell among others and go into the auction on December 18 in Jaipur with a purse of Rs. 25.50 crore.

Coming to the core squad, they have retained Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Chris Morris and also the Nepal Spinner. After finishing at the bottom of the table in IPL 2018, it remains to be seen whether a different name can change their fortunes next season.
