The 28-year-old, who made his T20 International debut last summer against India, finishing one of the leading wicket-takers in the three match series, will join the capital city franchise ahead of their fixture against the Kolkata Knight Riders tomorrow night.
“I am really excited to be part of arguably one of the leading domestic T20 tournaments. It is a fantastic opportunity and one which I am relishing,” expressed Dala.
“You’re surrounded by the world’s best limited-overs players and world-class coaches and this will provide me with the ideal platform from which to develop my own skills. It could possibly put me in good stead to play for South Africa again.”
“I want to thank the coaching staff at the Titans for their continued support, belief and investment in me as a bowler. Despite being plagued with injury at the start of last season, the support and rehabilitation I received from the coaches prepared me for opportunities on the global stage.”
When asked what he is most looking forward to, the paceman revealed: “The level of competition - if you look at the last couple of weeks, most of the games have been tight finishes, going down to the last over. For me, it will be quite an experience playing in those high-pressure situations in front of a packed crowd.”
Delhi Daredevils are currently bottom of the table, having managed only two points from their first six games, with just the one win, but Dala believes the franchise can turn their fortunes around.
“Delhi are a quality side and world-class outfit. With eight games left, can easily turn things around,” concluded Dala
