IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils have signed Maharashtra Ranji Trophy player Kedar Jadhav. The signing of Jadhav is pending ratification from the IPL governing body. Jadhav who had earlier played for the Daredevils during IPL 2010, had moved to the defunct Kochi Tuskers Kerala franchise in 2011. Jadhav said that he was happy to be back in the IPL and that he hoped he would have a successful season with the Daredevils. Jadhav has reportedly signed a one year contract worth Rs 20 lakh.
Coach and mentor of the Delhi Daredevils, TA Sekar said, "Kedar had already played for us and had performed really well. We know what he is capable of and that is the reason we have signed him." He added that the contract has been sent to the IPL governing body for approval.
Jadhav had scored a blistering triple century in Maharashtra's opening Ranji Trophy match against Uttar Pradesh and Sekar said that the knock just assured the franchise that they were going for the right player.
Jadhav rose to prominence in the 2010 season when he smashed a 29 ball half century in an IPL match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Jadhav has also always been vocal about his desire to play in the IPL.
"It was the IPL that brought me into the limelight and spending a year on the sidelines (IPL 2012) was quite hard for me. I am really excited to turn out for the Daredevils in the coming IPL and repay the franchise's faith in me," he said.
