Gautam Gambhir made a return to Delhi Daredevils in today's auction after leading Kolkata Knight Riders for seven seasons from 2011 - 2017.

He took to Twitter to share his thoughts on his return to the side from where it all started for him in IPL. He wrote on his  Twitter handle  “I am back.” after Delhi had successfully bid for him at the auctions. 

Later speaking to official broadcaster Star Sports, he also admitted that he wanted to end his IPL career with the Daredevils — a franchise where he started his IPL sojourn in 2008. “Playing for Delhi was always something I dreamt of. I wanted to finish off where it started. Delhi is my hometown and it is great to come back home and play for your home team. I am a Delhi boy and now I have become a proper Delhi boy,” Gambhir said, adding: “A Delhi boy is now coming back to Delhi.”

Now back to Delhi, he is also expected to dawn the skipper's hat and possibly script a new chapter for DD in the IPL.
