“At JSW, we strive to be “better everyday”, and over the past two years we have been witness to the DC team adopting this very same philopshy and constantly striving to reach new heights. We, at JSW have no doubt that this DC team has all the ingredients to bring the trophy to the capital city and to get the opportunity to be assosciated with a team filled with so much talent, youth and experience is something that is very exciting for every single JSWite,” he added.
Jindal is the Director of JSW Steel USA, Founder of JSW Sports and Managing Director for JSW Group’s Cement and Paints businesses.
Speaking about his expectations on the team’s performance during the new season, Jindal said, “The upcoming edition of the IPL will be different for more reasons than one.
