New Delhi, (Agencies): India’s dashing opener will again be seen leading his IPL side, Delhi Daredevils, in the fourth edition of the IPL.
 
Sehwag had captained the team in the first two seasons, leading them to the semifinals. He stepped down from the post before the 2009 Champions League.

Gautam Gambhir took over the charge from Sehwag in the last season but Gambhir would now be moving to Kolkata Knight Riders after being released by the Daredevils ahead of last month`s players` auction.

"For us Virender Sehwag stands for the Delhi Daredevils credo of Khelo Front Foot Pe," Srinivas Bommidala, Chairman of Daredevils owner GMR Sports, said in a statement.

Sehwag said he was excited about taking over captaincy again.
 
"For me there cannot be any other team than Delhi Daredevils in the IPL. As someone who grew up playing cricket in Delhi I am very proud to be playing for the Delhi Daredevils. I am delighted to be part of the Delhi Daredevils and lead the team," said Sehwag.
 
"I am looking forward to taking the Daredevils to new heights in IPL-4," he added.

Under his leadership, Delhi Daredevils topped the league stage in the 2009 season.
