Delhi - Delhi Daredevils appoint Proteas all-rounder JP Duminy as their captain for the upcoming IPL season.

Duminy was recruited by Delhi Daredevils last season and was the star performer for the franchise.

“I’m grateful for the support and belief from the franchise. It’s an absolute privilege to lead such a talented mix of players. I am excited about the season ahead and sincerely hope, we will be able to turn around the fortunes of Delhi Daredevils in the upcoming IPL season,” Duminy told the the Daredevils’ official website.

Head coach Gary Kirsten commented: “JP is the right choice to lead the team for the upcoming season. He has the necessary experience and demeanour to take the team forward. I have seen him progress and mature as a player and leader through the years with the South African national team. I look forward to working with him in the upcoming IPL season.”

The Daredevils were led by Kevin Pietersen last year, but the franchise released him as part of an overhaul which saw them offload 13 players from their 2014 squad.
