The Delhi Daredevils have signed Karnataka's wicketkeeper-batsman CM Gautam on a one-year contract for the sixth edition of the IPL, which is to commence April 3.
Gautam had previously played four seasons for Royal Challengers Bangalore before being released last November.
He recently enjoyed a successful Ranji Trophy season, scoring two double-hundreds and a century, to finish off the tournament as the third highest run-getter with 943 runs at an average of 117.87. He has scored 2528 runs in 40 matches at first-class level, at an average of 51.59.
Daredevils have the services of two other wicketkeepers in Naman Ojha - who has played most often for them - and Puneet Bisht.
