Warner signs up with Delhi Daredevils

December 17, 2008 11:19 IST

Australian cricketers in state side New South Wales continue to be hot property in the Indian Premier League (IPL)and young opener David Warner has become the latest to take the IPL plunge, signing a two-year deal with the Delhi Daredevils.

Warner, who is yet to play a match in the domestic Sheffield Shield competition, joins other NSW players like pacer Brett Lee (Kings XI Punjab), all-rounder Moises Henriques (Kolkata Knight Riders) and Nathan Bracken (Bangalore Royal Challengers) in the cash-rich Twenty20 league next season.

The 22-year-old, who hit a NSW one-day record score of 165 not out against Tasmania in a Ford Ranger Cup game last month, will play for the Daredevils alongside Australia pace legend Glenn McGrath, Indian opener Virender Sehwag and South African batsman AB de Villiers.

Warner has played eight one-day games for NSW at an average of 64.16 and seven Twenty20 games at 21.33, the Australian Associated Press reported.
