XtraTime Web Desk: Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly is a “happy man” as he starts new innings in Indian cricket. The “Prince of Kolkata” will be seen in cricket advisory role for the Delhi Capitals.
Ganguly is very excited as he said, “I am feeling very excited. Always wanted to return to cricket. You can say I am a happy man.” Ganguly was skipper of Kolkata Knight Riders and Pune Worriers in first few seasons of IPl.
What can we expect from advisor Sourav? Sourav says, “Yes I was the captain of KKR. But this role is totally different from that. Playing on the field is different than advising in the dugout. As a captain, I also had to execute the plans on the field. But this time the onus is on the cricketers to perform.” With combative batting talents like Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Delhi will be one of the most competitive outfits in the upcoming IPL opines Sourav. “I think Delhi is more stronger than last year. There are some brilliant talents in the franchise. Hopefully, we will have a great IPL.”
Taking up the new role in the IPL has brought back questions whether it leads to a conflict of interest. Sourav has dismissed those speculation saying, “There is no conflict of interest. I resigned from the IPL committee, I have spoken with the COA too before committing myself to the role
