Former Indian skipper and President of CAB (Cricket Association of Bengal) Sourav Ganguly has been appointed as the advisor of Delhi Capitals for the 12th edition of the IPL.
Ganguly looked pleased to work with ex rival and Delhi Capital head coach Ricky Ponting. Here is what Ganguly said “Having known the Jindals and the JSW Group for years, I am now excited to be a part of their latest sports venture. I am really looking forward to working with the players and the support staff.”
“Sourav is one of the most astute minds in world cricket. A lot of what we see in Indian cricket today was born because of Sourav. His aggression, positivity and never say die attitude are traits we want the Delhi Capitals team to imbibe. It is truly an honour that Sourav has chosen Delhi as his IPL team.
“I have no doubt that our team will benefit immensely from his experience, guidance and advice. Sourav has been like family to me and I am deeply humbled to have him as an advisor,” said Delhi Capitals chairman Parth Jindal.
