Brought back in the Delhi Daredevils squad, the in-form Ross Taylor will be vital to the team’s fortunes. An attacking batsman, especially in the shortest version of the game, turned a new leaf in the 2013-14 season when he displayed the ability to curb his strokes and also play the waiting game. The former New Zealand captain has the skills and temperament to change the complexion of the game. A powerful striker of the cricket ball, Taylor gave ample evidence of his scoring abilities during his stint with the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first three seasons of the IPL. A hard hitting batsman, Taylor plays the sweep shot with panache. He also bowls occasional off-breaks and is a good fielder. He was signed by the Rajasthan Royals at the IPL Player Auction 2011, but was transferred to the Delhi Daredevils prior to IPL 2012 and traded to Pune Warriors in 2013.
