Sehwag named Delhi Ranji captain
Virender Sehwag has been named the captain of Delhi's Ranji Trophy squad for the 2012-13 season according to report in the Deccan Herald. Gautam Gambhir has been named his deputy.
The Ranji Trophy selection committee, which met at the Delhi and District Cricket Association on Friday evening, released the list of 35 probables.
Delhi begin their Ranji campaign against Uttar Pradesh on November 2. The Test series against England begins on November 15 and it is likely that the national players could be available for the opening Ranji match, in a bid to warm up before the Tests.
