Gambhir is Batman for Delhi Daredevils Image: Delhi Daredevils/Twitter
For the Delhi Daredevils, Gautam Gambhir is their Batman and Delhi their 'Gautam City'. As this dark Knight moved from Kolkata Knight Riders to the Delhi dugout during the IPL 2018 auctions, he has been given the captain's hat by the team management.
DD probably cannot contain their excitement. Because their announcement, which was laced with wit and humour, took the Internet by storm.
The post reads, "Let's put a smile on your face! It's his city and he's back!"
Gambhir's return to the Delhi franchise was being discussed in most cricketing circles even before the auctions happened. And as KKR didn't retain Gambhir, he was snapped up by DD for Rs 2.6 crore. According to KKR CEO Venky Mysore, Gambhir didn't want to continue with the Kolkata-based franchise.
Gambhir was probably tired of being a Knight and wanted some daredevilry on his resume.
