He is an established international captain but Mahela Jayawardene finds Virender Sehwag an “instinctive leader” who has done a fabulous job for Delhi Daredevils.

“Viru has done a splendid job. During the course of the tournament, I have seen him take incredible decisions on the spur of the moment and they have really paid off. He is an instinctive leader.

“In T20 cricket, you need to make quick decisions and for that you need to have a clear mind," Jayawardene said.

Captaincy, according to Jayawardene, is not difficult provided one has done his homework properly. “Leading a side might look complex but once you have done your homework, it's not that difficult a job. If you are not prepared well enough, then your on-field options become lesser and you will have trouble.

“At Daredevils, we have had some very good team meetings where we have analysed the strengths and weaknesses of other sides along with our support staff. KP has also big role so has Morne (Morkel) and Nadeem,” he said.
