Former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly will be returning to the IPL as Director of Cricket with the Delhi Capitals in the

upcoming edition, sources close to the development said on Tuesday, reports Times of India. The former India captain, who stepped down from the BCCI president’s post in October, will also oversee all the cricket verticals of the franchise along with the ILT20 team Dubai Capitals and the SA T20 league side Pretoria Capitals. “Yes, Sourav will be back with Delhi

Capitals from 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,” an IPL source tracking the

developments told PTI on the condition of anonymity. It couldn’t be confirmed whether Ganguly will have any minority stake in the franchise co-owned by GMR and JSW groups. Ganguly was the mentor of 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. It will be a big challenge for both Ponting and Ganguly with regular skipper Rishabh Pant all but out of IPL after his horrifying car accident last week.
