Vivo IPL 2021: Delhi Capitals (DC) on Sunday announced that former Indian wicket keeper and national selector Saba Karim will join the franchise as the head of the talent scout.
Earlier, Karim was also associated with the BCCI as general manager for cricket operations while his tenure ended in January 2021.
Karim has featured in 53 One Day International (ODI) games for India and one test match before an unfortunate eye injury kept him away from the game and ended his cricketing career.
The 53-years old is delighted to join the franchise and said, “I am very excited to begin my role as Talent Scout for the Delhi Capitals.”
“The IPL has, over the years, unearthed so much talent, and continues to produce world class action. Delhi Capitals is an exciting team to work with, and I am looking forward to help them grow further,” he added.
He also praised the players for keeping themselves away from their families during these testing times due to Covid-19 global pandemic.
“Firstly, I would like to commend the incredible courage shown by the players during this year’s IPL,” said Karim.
“It’s not easy for anyone to stay away from their loved ones at this very difficult time. Yet they have stuck around, and continued playing the tournament, for which they deserve plenty of credit.”
As of now, Delhi Capitals (DC) is placed second in the points table with five wins in the seven games. DC will play against Punjab Kings (PBKS) tonight which will be their eighth game of the season.
