Delhi Capitals name Daniel Sams as replacement for Jason Roy
Australian fast bowler Daniel Sams has been named as the replacement for England’s Jason Roy, who will not be with Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020.
Days are inching towards the start of the Indian Premier League 2020 in the United Arab Emirates. The season is all set to begin now, after a postponement from the actual plan due to the coronavirus pandemic situation.
With almost all the franchises have arrived in the hosting country, now players and other people are going through the compulsory quarantine period imposed by BCCI. Soon after finishing the quarantine, franchises will start their training camps in the United Arab Emirates.
Ahead of the tournament, Delhi Capitals are stuck with a blow in the form of right-handed batsman Jason Roy. The English batsman confirmed that he will not be a part of this year’s Indian Premier League due to personal reasons.
Ultimately, the franchise has named the replacement for the English batsman. Australian left-arm fast bowler Daniel Sams has been named as the replacement for Jason Roy. On Thursday, Delhi Capitals officially confirmed the news through their social media handles.
The fast bowler is currently in England for the ODI series between Australia and England. Soon after the end of the series, he will join the Delhi Camp. According to that he might miss the first two games for Delhi Capitals.
“The IPL is a huge platform for any cricketer, and back home, we all follow the tournament extremely closely every year,” said the fast bowler, who’ll be part of his first-ever IPL. “I feel fortunate to be a part of it this year, and I’m thankful to the Delhi Capitals management for giving me this opportunity. I can’t wait to join the rest of the players in the UAE.”
