As the mega auction of Indian Premier League is over, the all teams are now starting the strategy for the best results. As we all know that the Delhi Daredevils team is ready to play with a new captain (Gautam Gambhir), they have also appointed a new bowling coach.
The former all-rounder of Australian cricket team, James Hopes has been appointed the bowling coach of the Delhi Daredevils for the 11th edition of this league. The team has already appointed the Australian legendary cricketer Ricky Ponting as the head coach of the team ahead the auction.
The CEO of the Delhi Daredevils, Hemant Dua said,”Once our auction strategy paid off, it was time to also appoint key personnel in the coaching staff. Ricky [Ponting] has had great inputs in both the selection of players and the support staff. We are absolutely delighted to welcome both James [Hopes] and Subhadeep [Ghosh] into the Daredevils family.”
James Hopes played for the same franchise Delhi Daredevils in 2011, after playing for the Kings XI Punjab. He also captained for the team in three matches, but failed to win a single game.
“For James, it is a sort of homecoming as he has played for Delhi Daredevils earlier. Now he comes with immense experience both as a cricketer and a coach. He will be a great asset for the squad as we have some excellent young fast bowlers. Subhadeep (Ghosh) has been a specialist fielding coach for close to a decade at various levels in first-class cricket and the NCA. We are certain that he will add a lot of value to the squad,” added Mr. Dua.
