Indian Premier League (IPL) outfit Delhi Daredevils (DD) have launched their latest logo for the seventh edition of the cash-rich league and will hope it may be the mark of changing times for them in the ultra-short version of the game.
The logo is symbolized as ‘flying high’ and represents a red and yellow themed kite soaring high into the sky.
The earlier logo of Delhi was that of a red cricket ball shrouded in flames which was used in the previous six editions of the tournament and the team will surely hope that a change in sign will probably motivate the team to perform to their optimum in the upcoming edition of the IPL.
Delhi Daredevils are owned by the GMR group and have had limited success in the IPL with their best showing coming in the 2008 and 2009 versions of the tournament when they finished as semi-finalists on both occasions and also made it to the playoff’s in 2012.
The 2013 season may go down as the worst in Delhi’s history in the IPL as they lost their first six matches in the tournament and only had their first win against the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the seventh game.
Their record stands as 12 losses and 3 wins which is terrible to say the least as they finished last amongst the nine teams and had their worst ever season in the IPL.
The team is being coached by South African Gary Kirsten and also has star players in the form of Kevin Pietersen and wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik who was bought for INR 12.5 crore in the 2014 Player Auction.
