On Thursday, Delhi Capitals selects Sourav Ganguly as an advisor for the IPL 2019 franchise. He assumes responsibility for the upcoming Indian Premier League season on March 23. Furthermore Ganguly will work closely with coach Ricky Ponting in his role to try to lead Delhi to their first IPL title ever.
“I’m very happy to join the Delhi Capitals on board,” said Ganguly on his association. “Similarly I am very excited to be part of their latest sporting venture, having known the Jindals and the JSW Group for years. I’m really looking forward to working with the support staff and players.”
“Sourav is one of the cricket’s cleverest minds in the world. Much of what we see today was born because of Sourav in Indian cricket. His aggression, positive attitude and never say die attitude are features we want to be the Delhi Capitals Advisor. Hence it’s really an honor that Delhi has been selected by Sourav as his IPL team.
“I have no doubt that his experience, guidance and advice will greatly benefit our team. Sourav has been to me like a family, and I am deeply humbled to have him as a consultant,” said Parth Jindal, Chairman of Delhi Capitals.
