New Delhi: May 6, 2012

Chacha Chaudhary and his aide Sabu these days are busy polishing their batting, bowling and fielding skills as they have been inducted into an IPL cricket team – the Delhi Daredevils – in a new special series of Diamond Comics.

The popular comic is featuring the duo entering the game of cricket as members of the Delhi Daredevils along with players like Virender Sehwag, Irfan Pathan and Kevin Pietersen.

Chacha Choudhury, who has been featured in countless comic series as one who employs his wits and the assistance of tall muscular but simpleton Sabu to fight crime, would be using the gentleman’s game to outwit crooks.

“Delhi Daredevils versus Saturn Cricketers”, “Delhi Daredevils versus Crookcaps” and “Delhi Daredevils versus Hurricane and Bad Boys” are the names of a few of the first titles in the series launched here recently by the the DLF Indian Premier League 2012 leader Delhi Daredevils captain Virender Sehwag.

For cartoonist Pran who created the lovable Chacha Chaudhary character Sehwag is definitely Chacha.

“Viru’s mind works fast just like Chacha so for me he is Chahca,” said Pran during the series launch

When Sehwag was asked about Sabu and whom among the team he would pick to play the character the flamboyant skipper couldn’t think of anybody else other than Kevin Pietersen.

“It’s (Kevin) Pietersen! Sabu to tha par chala gaya” said Sehwag referring to the English cricketer’s departure from the team. (PTI)
