Delhi Capitals (earlier Delhi Daredevils) has got a complete makeover. From the name to the logo, the franchise wants to start in a fresh way. But in an attempt to look different and unique, they messed up with their name.

After the new look of the team was presented to the fans, a reporter asked the team owners about the name. A reporter asked the co-owners of the Capitals, Parth Jindal (JSW Sport) and Kiran Kumar Gandhi (GMR Group) to put sense behind the name.

On which, Parth said, "Capitals is… you’re from the capitals. This (Delhi) is the capital of the country. So how do you… It’s a way of calling the team. If you look at the teams, they all have… you know, Mumbai Indians. It’s not Mumbai Indian. So you can ask what is ‘Indians’, but it’s Indians. So that’s the answer to that. You are from the capital, that’s what it means. It’s inclusive."

Talking about the squad, Gautam Gambhir was released from the franchise along with Jason Roy, Junior Dala, Liam Plunkett, Mohammed Shami, Sayan Ghosh, Daniel Christian, Glenn Maxwell, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, and Naman Ojha. They will look to strengthen their side in the upcoming IPL auction.
