Deccan Chargers, also known as Chargers, and short from as DC, is a cricket franchise that represents the city of Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. This team has come a long way ever since its inception. For the inaugural edition, the team finished last in the IPL, but went on to win the second edition of the tournament, under successful leadership of Captain Adam Gilchrist, who captained the team for the third season as well. However, from fourth season onwards, Kumar Sangakkara has been leading the team and Cameron White has been the Vice-Captain. The team is coached by Darren Lehmann, former Australian Test and One-Day Cricketer.
The Deccan Chargers franchise is owned by the Deccan Chronicle Holdings Limited. The official team logo for the Chargers is a charging bull. From the 2009 season, the team changed the colour of the jersey (from beige and black to sparkling silver and blue) and the logo (from gold and red to white and blue).

A superbly talented player, the stockily-built Darren Lehmann is a free-scoring left-hand batsman, and an underestimated left-arm orthodox spin bowler. As an out-and-out stroke player, he treats spectators to an audacious mixture of swashbuckling aggression and deft finesse

The 52 year old Kanwaljit Singh is the only player to have played in more than 100 Ranji Trophy games for Hyderabad. This mighty sardar, a genuine spinner of the ball was a delight to watch. He is an inspiring example for other cricketers for his formidable spirit and commitment to give 100 per cent every time he stepped on the cricket field, unmindful of the reward.
