Eric Simons appointed as head coach of Delhi Daredevils – Cricket News Update, India’s bowling consultant, has been appointed as the head coach of Delhi Daredevils, ahead of the fifth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), set to commence in April next year.
Former Indian pacer, Thirumalai Sekar, who worked as Indians’ Team Manager for the past two years, has also returned to DD as its mentor.
GMR Sports' Business Chairman, Kiran K Grandhi, made the announcement on Thursday and welcomed Simon's joining alongside Sekar's comeback. He hoped that the side will produce good results under the command of these two giants.
"I am sure that Simons' taking over as Head Coach and Sekar's return as Mentor will help the team overcome the disappointments of last season and become most competitive again," Grandhi said.
The Virender Sehwag-led Daredevils performed terribly in the previous edition of the lucrative T20 League, and won only four of their 14 matches. Moreover, the skipper injured his shoulder leaving the side in the midst of the tournament.
Like the team management, Sehwag is also delighted over Simons’ inclusion in the DD setup, and said that he is looking forward to work with the former South African fast bowler.
" has done a good job as a bowling coach and now he can do that as the Head Coach. I have a very good relationship with Eric. He has given me some good suggestions and he is a man who has a lot of experience in cricket and in life. I think our partnership
will work well for the team," shared the blistering opening batsman who is currently on the tour to setup will be a massive plus for the team.
Meanwhile, Simons is also excited about his new job and is confident of bringing dramatic improvements in the Delhi outfit. He admitted that the Daredevils performed under par during the last edition, and urged the guys to come up with something special
next year.
