Delhi Daredevils will begin their Indian Premier League campaign against Kings XI Punjab on April 8, 2017 at their home ground Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi. This the Daredevils' 11th season in the IPL and the team will be playing seven games each home and away. Delhi have been part of all Indian Premier League seasons before this. This season, Gautam Gambhir returns to the side. Gambhir had played for Delhi until 2011 before he moved to Kolkata Knight Riders and spend six glittering years there as captain of the team. He will now lead the Daredevils in the 2018 season. Delhi also have promising wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and India's U-19 World Cup stars Manjot Kalra and Prithvi Shaw. Delhi are yet to reach the final of the tournament and will be looking for an improved season this time.
