New Zealand captain Ross Taylor has been traded by Rajasthan Royals to Delhi Daredevils ahead of IPL 2012. Taylor is Delhi’s second big signing of the season after they acquired Kevin Pietersen from the Deccan Chargers.
Speaking on Taylor’s inclusion, Daredevils mentor TA Sekar said, "We all know what a quality player Ross is and we are happy that he will be with us this season.
“Besides players like our captain Virender Sehwag and David Warner, we have added muscle to our batting by inducting Mahela Jayawardene, Kevin Pietersen and now Ross Taylor into our fold. Our fans can look forward to some explosive knocks."
Rajasthan Royals had bought Taylor for USD 1 million at the IPL Player Auction 2011. The Kiwi played 12 matches for the Royals, scoring 181 runs at an average of 36.20 and a strike-rate of 119.07.
The Black Caps captain is currently nursing a calf injury but is expected to return to cricket with the Test series against South Africa starting March 7.
Taylor was part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore outfit for the first three IPL seasons before moving to the Royals. Delhi Daredevils will be his third IPL team.
Summary of the player-transfers during the IPL 2012 trading window:
Delhi Daredevils have retained Virender Sehwag as captain of their IPL 2012 campaign despite a string of no-shows from the opener in his international outings.
"There are no questions regarding Viru's captaincy. We are not really concerned about the fact that he has not scored runs. He is an impact player and believes that the ball is there to be hit. We have not at all thought about making any changes as far as leadership is concerned,"
Daredevils Director of Coaching TA Sekar said at the sidelines of a promotional event. The Daredevils had signed Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene at the IPL Player Auction 2012, making him an automatic choice for captain if Sehwag was to be relieved of the duty. Sekar, however, brushed away the suggestion saying, "Jayawardene will always be there to complement Sehwag."
Explaining DD’s decision to trade off pacer Ashoke Dinda to Pune Warriors India, Sekar said, "I have spoken to Varun Aaron and he will be fit before the tournament starts. His rehabilitation program is going well."
The Daredevils mentor also defended the team’s persistence with wicketkeeper Naman Ojha, whose keeping skills have often come under the scanner.
"Naman has scored a lot of runs this [domestic] season and has also improved as a 'keeper. Also, in T20, even if you are not [the] best gloveman, you can get away with it," Sekar said in defence of the Madhya Pradesh wicketkeeper.
