elhi Daredevils are all set to make a fresh start in the Indian Premier League from this season and the first step they took towards that was by buying star player Gautam Gambhir at the http://www.bearsnflofficialproshop.com/kyle-fuller-jersey-for-sale-c-28.html auction on Saturday.

The two-time IPL winning-captain with Kolkata Knight Riders had asked the Shah Rukh Khan co-owned team not to retain him as he wanted to finish his IPL career with the Daredevils.KKR obliged and DD picked him up at the IPL auction for Rs 2.80 crore, much to the delight of Brent Burns Jersey the fans back in Delhi. (Indian Premier League 2018: Full team list)

Gambhir, who led the Knight Riders to two IPL titles in 2012 and 2014, will in all probability lead the Daredevils from this season due to his outstanding record as captain in the tournament.Only MS Dhoni has a better record as captain in the IPL with 83 wins from 143 games - Gambhir has Kelvin Beachum Youth jersey won 70 out of 123 matches.
Daredevils also have Ricky Ponting on board as head coach this season which means the team http://www.sanjosesharksofficialonline.com/Adidas-Marc-edouard-Vlasic-Jersey now consists of two of the best cricketing minds in the game.Even though he did not reveal the details, Ponting did say after the auction that the team management was Womens Norichika Aoki Jersey looking at Gambhir as a possible captain.
"We are expecting Gambhir to lead by example. We have a good Indian core, and Glenn Maxwell in the middle order. All in all, it looks good," Ponting said after the auction on Sunday.
Along with Gambhir and Ponting, Delhi also have one of the best bowling lineups now, thanks to the management's decision to use the Right to Match cards for superstars like Mohammed Shami and South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada while South African all-rounder Chris Morris was one of the three players retained by the franchisee.
Rising star Rishabh Pant (Rs 15 crore) and Shreyas Iyer were the other two players to be retained at enormous prices.DD also bid for some outstanding players in the auction like India U-19 captain Prithvi Shaw, in-form New Zealand opener Colin Munro, England's Jason Roy and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.
Trent Boult (New Zealand), Dan Christian (Australia), Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia and Naman Ojha were also snapped up at along with Sandeep Lamichhane, who became the first player from Nepal to bag an IPL contract.
Delhi were http://www.buccaneersofficialauthentics.com/Authentic-Kwon-Alexander-Jersey not just smart in their team selection but also made managed to fill up their squad with 25 players, which is the maximum squad strength allowed in the IPL.In fact, DD was the first side to max out at 25 in the auction including the three retained players, 8 overseas cricketers and still managed to leave the room with Rs 1.60 crore in their purse.
In other words, the Daredevils have made the right start in their bid to rewrite the record books. They made the semi-finals in the first two seasons (2008 & 2009) and reached the playoffs in 2012 but have not gone beyond the league stage since 2013.
Gambhir's departure has now left a big void in KKR's ranks, who had picked him up for a then-record fee of Rs 11.04 crore in 2011. The Knight Riders have hinted that either of Robin Uthappa or Dinesh Karthik could be appointed captain. wholesale nfl jerseys nike nfl jerseys china mlb jerseys wholesale wholesale jerseys all baseball jerseys custom cheap jerseys wholesale
