Kevin Pietersen to lead Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2014
Kevin Pietersen will captain Delhi Daredevils in the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League, while the Indian wicketkeeper batsman, Dinesh Karthik has been named as the vice-captain. There are eight teams participating in one of the most awaited competition of the year, which starts on 16th April in UAE.

The organisers of the IPL had to shift their venue to some foreign soil, as the IPL dates clashed with the Lok Sabha elections. Nevertheless, final stages of the competition would be played in India.

On his appointment as captain, Pietersen said, "I feel incredibly honoured to have been asked to captain the Delhi Daredevils in this year's IPL. I am very much looking forward to working alongside Gary Kirsten. We have a fantastic squad with a good blend of youth and experience and a brilliant coaching set up. We hope to bring our incredible fans a lot of happiness this season,'' reported NDTV.  

It is no surprise that the English cricketer has been named as the skipper of the side, as he is one of the most experienced along with being a dangerous batsman in world cricket, especially in this format of the game. As a player for Delhi Daredevils in 2002, he has had a good run and DD fans would expect the player to hit the same form this season as well. Under the experience of Pietersen and Gary Kirsten, who is their coach, they look to be a strong contender for the IPL 2014 title.

On paper, they look a strong unit with a number of players, who can tilt the game in their favour with their bowling or batting exploits. Apart from the skipper and his deputy, Manoj Tiwary, Quinton De Kock, Mayank Agarwal, Ross Taylor, Wayne Parnell are few of their other star attractions.
