From basketball to football to even synchronized swimming, sports can be a great source of entertainment. One particular game that might be to your fancy is cricket. This bat-and-ball game originated in England during the 16th century. During recent years, however, it’s popularity has grown even outside Great Britain. More and more countries are forming their own cricket teams. One of which are the Delhi Daredevils from India. They represent New Delhi in various national competitions such as the Indian Premier League. The team is owned and supported by the GMR Group, a business establishment involved in infrastructure. A lot of the members had prior playing experiences before joining the team; some even played abroad. The whole lot proved to be quite capable on the field. Their fame continues to rise as more and more people are taking notice of what they can really do. Right now, the team is headed by Gautam Gambhir. His predecessor was Virender Sehwag who had held the position for two seasons.
Besides the mentioned team, there are many more cricket teams in India that represent the different cities of the country in the Indian Premier League. One of the names that you should look out for is the Deccan Chargers also known as DC or ‘Chargers’. This team represents the city of Hyderabad. Owned by Deccan Chronicle Holdings Limited, the team also features experienced and talented members. Some of which also have prior experience playing abroad. They have actually been one of the favourites to grab the championship and are definitely a force to be reckoned with.
