Delhi - The Delhi Daredevils have picked Victoria all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and South Africa batsman Gulam Bodi in their squad for the upcoming IPL season, in place of Colin Ingram and Travis Birt.

According to the Cricinfo website, Bodi, 33, has played two ODIs and a Twenty20 for South Africa. He made his first-class debut in 1996/97 and since then has played 131 First Class matches in which he's averaged 32.40. He's also played 64 Twenty20s, averaging 29.29 with a highest score of 98 not out.

"Gulam was the best available replacement, given that we had to find someone within Birt's base price," Daredevils team mentor TA Sekar said.

"Just the other day, he made a belligerent 90 off 51 balls with seven fours and five sixes for the Highveld Lions against the Warriors in their MiWay Twenty20 Challenge match."
