"We are delighted to have signed up talented cricketers who we spotted on the domestic circuit this season," team mentor TA Sekhar told PTI. "We were tracking Manprit Juneja even before he scored 201 on first-class debut against Tamil Nadu. We are confident he will push real hard for a place in the [Daredevils] middle-order this season.
"Negi can be an effective left-hand allrounder. He caught our eye when taking six wickets [overall] for Delhi in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy [India's state-based domestic Twenty20 competition]. Raval fits into the team's scheme of things well, since he has the game and the temperament to be an impact player in the middle-order."
The Daredevils also bought out the contracts of Robert Frylinck, who plays for South African franchise Dolphins, former India allrounder S Sriram, Rajasthan legspinner Vivek Yadav and Baroda left-arm spinner Rajesh Pawar. Sriram had played one of the Daredevils games last season, while the other three did not figure in any of the matches.
