IPL 2023: Former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly to rejoin Delhi Capitals as Director of Cricket

Xtra Time Web Desk: Former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly will be re-joining IPL franchise as Director of Cricket ahead of IPL 2023 starting in April, sources close to the development confirmed.

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 ILT20 team Dubai Capitals and 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 developments told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

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 inputs.
