Hoping to make a comeback into the Indian cricket team with stellar showings in the IPL, new Delhi Daredevils recruits Yuvraj Singh and Zaheer Khan on Tuesday said they would make their stint with the franchise count in a bid to revive their international careers.
Delhi bagged Yuvraj for a record fee of Rs. 16 crore in the February auctions and the all-rounder wants to make the most of it.
It's an important season and I've had a good domestic season so far. But IPL will be different as it will be T20 and together we would like to perform well and take Delhi ahead in the tournament," the 33-year-old, who last played for India in 2013, added.
Zaheer, 36, is returning to cricket after nearly 10 months following an injury in the last IPL season when he played for Mumbai Indians.
"At the moment I'm looking to just enjoying playing cricket again. So looking to take one step at a time and IPL is the first step," said Zaheer, who was snapped up by Delhi for Rs 4 crore.
Delhi Daredevils coach Gary Kirsten feels that the addition of experienced players like Zaheer Khan and Yuvraj Singh will add great value to the team during the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League scheduled to begin from 8th April.
Delhi Daredevils open their first match against Chennai Super Kings in Chennai on 9th April, 8 PM IST.
