Delhi Capitals appoint Sourav Ganguly as advisor

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday was appointed the Delhi Capitals (formely Delhi Daredevils) franchise of the Indian Premier League as an Advisor.
In his role, Ganguly will work closely with the team’s head coach Ricky Ponting, and guide the team in its quest to bring the IPL trophy to Delhi.
“I am very pleased to come on board with the Delhi Capitals,” Ganguly said, after his appointment . “Having known the Jindals and the JSW Group for years, I am now excited to be a part of their latest sports venture. I am really looking forward to working with the players and the support staff."
“Sourav is one of the most astute minds in world cricket. A lot of what we see in Indian cricket today was born because of him. His aggression, positivity and never say die attitude are traits we want the Delhi Capitals team to imbibe. It is truly an honour that Sourav has chosen Delhi as his IPL team.
"I have no doubt that our team will benefit immensely from his experience, guidance and advice. Sourav has been like family to me and I am deeply humbled to have him as an Advisor,” said Parth Jindal, Chairman, Delhi Capitals.
The Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals team will kick-start their season against Mumbai Indians on Sunday, March 24, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. They will play their first home match two days later, when they take on defending champions Chennai Super Kings at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
