IPL 2019: Mohammed Kaif Likely to Join Ricky Ponting as DD Coach

IPL is the most entertaining and professional Twenty20 cricket league in India. Delhi Daredevils is trying their best to get the high-grade support staff for the forthcoming season of Indian Premier League (IPL 2019). Prior, the reports raised that Anil Kumble was on the radar of DD franchise, now, the new reports say that they are also talks with Mohammed Kaif.

If the reports by The Mumbai Mirror are to be believed, Mohammed Kaif is happy to serve the team alongside Ricky Ponting in the coaching staff. However, the official confirmation is yet to come from either Kaif or the authority.

Prior, Delhi Daredevils (DD) replaced Rahul Dravid with Ricky Ponting because of the irreconcilable circumstance. Regardless of the appointment of the brave cricketer, they failed to become wildly successful in the 2018 edition of the IPL.

Then, they are attempting to get the services of the Indian player to help Ricky Ponting in the upcoming version. The addition of Mohammed Kaif would most likely yield better outcomes for the team, as he got enough cricketing knowledge.

Previously, Mohammed Kaif worked for Gujarat Lions in the coaching staff. However, he didn’t get the opportunity in the following year, as he chose to try his hand as a TV commentator for Star Sports Network.

Earlier, Mohammed Kaif collaborated with Gujarat Lions in the coaching staff. However, he didn’t get the opportunity in the next year. Mohammed Kaif has the experience added to his repertoire. He had given his services as the coach as well as a player to Chattisgarh in their debut Ranji Season.

With everything taken into account, it would be a decent marking for Delhi if they get the experienced Indian campaigner in their side. Hopefully, they would improve the situation this time.

In the meantime, it is interesting to see whether they retain Gautam Gambhir for the upcoming season or not. If not as the player, having Gautam Gambhir as a mentor will profit the youngsters greatly.
