Alfonso Thomas
Former South Africa pacer Alfonso Thomas has been hired by Delhi Daredevils to oversee the development of their fast bowlers ahead of the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League.
The 38-year-old, who featured in one T20I for the Proteas in 2007 and played for the now-defunct Pune Warriors India in 2011 and 2012, is excited to have been entrusted with the responsibility.
Delhi Daredevils’ chief coach Gary Kirstenon Thursday said that he was caught ‘off-guard’ in respect to the demands and needs of coaching a franchise in T20 leagues like the IPL as the team finished last in the table in 2014. There is a lingering feeling that Albie Morkel has under-achieved given his vast talent, but the South Africa all-rounder says he can’t think ‘anything bad’ about his career.The 33-year-old feels he still has a few ‘good years’ in him and is positive about his maiden stint with IPL ,franchise Delhi Daredevils.
