Delhi: Left-arm fast bowler Pradeep Sangwan will lead Delhi in the upcoming Vijay Hazare Trophy National ODI tournament while veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan is also in the squad. Rajkumar Sharma has been made the coach of the team.
Shikhar Dhawan and Unmukt Chand have been included in the 22-man squad but none of them were given the responsibility of captaincy. After the first week of the tournament starting on February 20, Dhawan might not be able to offer his services to the home team due to the commitment of the national team.
