Former England spinner will join Daredevils ahead of IPL 2013
By IPL Desk
Mumbai 14 February 2013
Delhi Daredevils has appointed former England cricketer Jeremy Snape as the team’s Performance Coach for the Pepsi Indian Premier League season. Snape, who is acknowledged to have helped South Africa in its journey as the top Test-playing team, will work with the coaching and support staff.
“We are happy to welcome Jeremy as Performance Coach,” said GMR Sports’ Head (Cricket) TA Sekar.
“We believe he has the right credentials to help the Delhi Daredevils achieve its goals. We are sure he will bring in fresh ideas and help the coaching staff bring the best out of the players in a high performance environment.
“At GMR Sports, we want to leave no stone unturned and help the team in its quest to be competitive through the IPL season,” he said.
“We are sure that Snape will enable the players be on the edge of their comfort zones as they deliver high performance through the coming season.”
The 39-year-old Snape, who founded one of Britain’s leading Performance Coaching companies, said he was delighted to be joining Delhi Daredevils for the 2013 IPL season.
“The mental side of T20 is both fascinating and vital and I look forward to supporting the players and coaches to achieve their ambitions,” he said.
Delhi Daredevils have made a swap with the Pune Warriors India, exchanging Ross Taylor for Ashish Nehra, in the ongoing IPL Player Trading Window.
The Delhi-based franchise had acquired Taylor, the former New Zealand captain, from his previous team, Rajasthan Royals, ahead of the 2012 season.
The Pune franchise will be Taylor’s fourth IPL team – he represented Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first three IPL seasons, before playing a season each for Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils respectively.
“We are elated to have a batsman like Ross Taylor in our ranks. He will add muscle, panache and of course, experience, to our middle order in the forthcoming season,” Sushanto Roy, Managing Director, Sahara Adventure Sports Ltd, said.
Ashish Nehra, the India speedster, was part of the Delhi Daredevils squad in the 2009 and 2010 seasons. His best IPL performance was in 2009, when he took 19 wickets from 13 matches for DD. He had earlier represented Mumbai Indians in the inaugural season in 2008. He was bought by Pune Warriors India in the 2011 Player Auction, but missed the 2011 season due to injury. He played for PWI in 2012.
“Ashish Nehra will constitute an integral part of our bowling attack in the 2013 season. We were the best team at the league stage in 2012, and with a player like him around, we are confident that we will go the distance,” T.A Sekar, Head (Cricket), GMR Sports, said.
The only other player transfer to have taken place this season is that of T. Suman from Mumbai Indians to Pune Warriors India.
