Delhi Capitals on Thursday announced the signing of 27-year-old Australian bowling all-rounder Daniel Sams as a replacement for Jason Roy, who will not be a part of the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) in UAE due to personal reasons.
Sams’ impressive performances in the Big Bash League for the Sydney Thunders earlier this year saw him earn a national call-up. He is, in fact, a part of Australia’s limited-overs squad for the tour of England next month.
On joining Delhi Capitals, the left-arm fast-medium bowler Daniel Sams said, “The IPL is a huge platform for any cricketer, and back home, we all follow the tournament extremely closely every year. 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.”
Sams will be joining fellow Australians Marcus Stoinis and Alex Carey at the Delhi Capitals. Earlier this week Delhi capitals as announced Ryan Harris as the new bowling coach, who is replacing James Hopes.
