The IPL fever is about to set in. With less than a month to go before the gala inauguration of the 10th edition of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) the stage is set for the cricketers to showcase their enormous talents on the field once again. Interestingly, both experienced and fresh cricketers from across the world wish to make their present felt in the tournament ever since its inception way back in 2008.

Since then several cricketers took part in the tournament from the years thereafter. A team that has played brilliantly in the first two seasons is Delhi Daredevils. Team’s performance might have been below average in the last two IPL seasons but they are a still a strong team to reckon with.

Here are the names of 5 players who once played for Delhi Daredevils but not anymore.

The right-arm-fast was once considered as the next big thing of cricket. But unfortunately, his international career has always hogged the limelight for wrong reasons. Making his debut for Pakistan way back in 2005, Asif got his career blemished soon due to spot-fixing scandal that rocked world cricket in 2010. Asif has more than 150 international wickets to his credit across formats.

Mohammad Asif has represented Delhi Daredevils once in the year 2008, the very year IPL tournament was launched. The wily seamer chipped in 8 IPL wickets in the equal number of matches during his stint with Delhi Daredevils. However, he was dropped from the side once his drug result came out positive in the following season.
