Pacer Ashish Nehra returns to the Delhi Daredevils squad for the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League as the franchise swapped him for Ross Taylor in the ongoing players trading window.

Ashish Nehra was part of the Daredevils squad in the 2009 and 2010. He played the inaugural IPL season in 2008 for Mumbai Indians. He was bought by Pune Warriors India in the 2011 auction, but missed the season due to injury.

“Ashish Nehra will constitute an integral part of our bowling attack in the 2013 season. We were the best team at the league stage in 2012, and with a player like him around, we are confident that we will go the distance,” Delhi Daredevils official said.

The Pune franchise will be Taylor’s fourth IPL team after representing Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first three seasons, and then  playing a season each for Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils.

“We are elated to have a batsman like Ross Taylor in our ranks. He will add muscle, panache and of course, experience, to our middle order in the forthcoming season,” Sushanto Roy, Managing Director, Sahara Adventure Sports Ltd, said.

The only other player transfer to have taken place this season is that of T Suman from Mumbai Indians to Pune Warriors India.
