Dala impressed one and all during the recently concluded India’s tour of South Africa. He clinched the wicket of Rohit Sharma in each of the 3 T20Is. He is a tall fast bowler from Zambia. He has tremendous pace and a deadly inswinger. He has played only 3 T20Is for South Africa so far.
Delhi Daredevils play the Kolkata Knight Riders today at 20:00 IST at the FerozShah Kotla.
Chris Morris will be a huge loss for the Daredevils as he was one of the star players of the side who could turn things around for the side. Everything will be on how the team responds to the new captain and put aside their horrors of this season.
