A day after being bought by the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL 7 auction, Kevin Pietersen said that Delhi have a good squad and he is excited to play the full season of the IPL. Pietersen also cleared that he is fine with any role, be it of leadership or helping the team with his experience.

 

“I am okay with whatever goes, either its leadership or helping the captain or helping the youngster,” he said in an interview with an IPL TV show.

 

“We have got a good squad. The two South Africans JP Duminy and Quinton de Kock. Jimmy Neesham is also a good buy coming up from New Zealand. So it’s a good squad overall.

 

When the anchor of the show asked him, “We love you in India more than they do back there, don’t we?”

 

Pietersen replied, “I don’t know… It feels that way at the moment.”
