Deccan Chargers!

Deccan Chargers also called as DC is a franchise that represents the city of Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. They are the current holders of the IPL Trophy, winning the second season held in South Africa in 2009.

From 2009, the team is led by Adam Gilchrist and coached by Darren Lehmann, both former Australian Test & One-Day Cricketers.
They finished last in the first season of the IPL, but emerged as the champions in the second by winning it.

The Deccan Chargers franchise is owned by Deccan Chronicle. The media group acquired the franchise from IPL for $107 million on January 24, 2008. Later, another media group, Group M India picked up a 20% stake in the franchise. The team's name reflects the association with the Deccan Chronicle newspaper, which in turn derives its name from the Deccan plateau that makes up the majority of the southern portion of the Indian peninsula.

There is no Icon Player for the team as the former captain V.V.S. Laxman rejected the offer to be an icon player in order to give a chance to the younger players.
