Twitteratis go on a trolling spree as Delhi Daredevil’s change their name to Delhi capitals


Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Daredevils have changed their name and from now on they will be known as Delhi Capitals. It was announced in a function on Tuesday. Delhi Daredevils were the only franchise from the original eight not to reach an IPL final.

The team had maintained a poor track record over for the past eleven seasons and with the new name, the JSW sport led team will be looking for a better season in 2019. Daredevils were on the bottom of the points table in four seasons.

Speaking at the launch of the re-branding on Tuesday, Parth Jindal director of part-owners JSW Sports said: “We wanted this name to mean something to each and everyone from Delhi.

Our supporting staff has a knack of picking raw talent and moulding them. Sandeep Lamichhane is a fine example of that. This season we have Kaif too who has been a natural talent scout too in this country. Shikhar Dhawan is a proven performer in IPL and he adds the perfect experience to the motivated young core of ours,” added Jindal.

Ricky Ponting will be the head coach of the team whereas Mohammad Kaif will be the team’s assistant coach.

The Twitter then went on a trolling spree hearing the name of the new team i.e Delhi Capitals
