Sourav Ganguly, former head of the BCCI, will rejoin the IPL in April’s forthcoming season as director of cricket for the Delhi Capitals.
The former India captain, who left his position as BCCI president in October, will also be in charge of the franchise’s cricket operations, which also include the Pretoria Capitals of the SA T230 league and the Dubai Capitals of the ILT20.
“Yes, Sourav will be back with Delhi Capitals this year. The discussions and modalities are over. He has worked with the franchise, shares a good comfort level with owners and if he would have worked in IPL, it would have always been with DC,” according to the source.
Ganguly was the mentor of the Delhi Capitals during his stint with the franchise in 2019.
It is understood that Delhi Capitals’ recent auction picks had both head coach Ricky Ponting and Ganguly’s footprints.
