Sir Viv peps Delhi Daredevils

ICON: Sir Viv

THE MASTER Blaster continues to beat! Former West Indies captain Sir Vivian Richards has joined Delhi Daredevils franchise of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as the team's advisor and ambassador.

The West Indies legend said of his appointment: “I am looking forward to working with the Delhi Daredevils this season."

He added: “I know the team has many players of proven quality and others who have immense talent and hunger to succeed at this level and higher. It will be a great experience for me to be their sounding board and inspire them to deliver quality performances."

Daredevils team mentor TA Sekar said the plan had been to sign Richards before the season began.

“There are a number of youngsters in the squad who can make the most of the opportunity to interact with Sir Viv and evolve as cricketers," Sekar said.

“He was keen to be with the team at the start of the season but he had prior commitments and could join us only now."

This will be Richards' first stint with an IPL franchise. However, the cricket icon has much work to do in to inspire the team. The beleaguered Daredevils lost six straight matches in the ongoing tournament.
