Delhi Daredevils IPL team renamed as Delhi Capitals”

Delhi Daredevils, part of the Indian Premier League since the opening edition in 2008, has been renamed as Delhi Capitals, the franchise announced on Tuesday (December 4).

"With a new name, a new logo and a new look, Delhi Capitals' vision is to continuously entertain fans all across through high quality performances, both on and off field". The announcement to change the name was made in a function in Delhi by owners GMR Group and JSW Sports. Ahead of the 2019 IPL auctions, the Delhi Daredevils released former captain Gautam Gambhir and a host of global stars which include Jason Roy, Glenn Maxwell and Liam Plunkett, along with Indian paceman Mohammed Shami.

Ahead of the 2018 edition, the GMR group entered into a 50-50 partnership with Mumbai-based steel company Jindal South West (JSW) Sports for the ownership of the team. However, there is already a team called "Delhi Capitals" that plays in the UBA (basketball). 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. The Delhi franchise has realeased former captain Gautam Gambhir ahead of IPL 2019 auctions. "Shikhar Dhawan is a proven performer in IPL and he adds the flawless experience to the motivated young core of ours", said Parth Jindal, GMR's Corporate Chairman, during the event.
