IPL 2023: Sourav Ganguly set to rejoin Delhi Capitals as Director of Cricket

Team India's legend Sourav Ganguly will return as Director of Cricket with the Indian Premier League side Delhi Capitals for the next season of the IPL, according to the sources.

Former India and Kolkata Knight Riders' skipper was replaced as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president last year and was replaced by Roger Binny.

The franchise's cricket verticals will also be overseen by Ganguly, including the ILT20 team Dubai Capitals and South African T230 team Pretoria Capitals. You can find the best bookmakers in India here.

A former Delhi Capitals mentor, the former left-handed batter served as the franchise's mentor in 2019. This will be his second stint with the IPL franchise and fans will be hoping that he can be an influential figure to turn the team's fortunes this time around.

Delhi Capitals' head coach Ricky Ponting along with Ganguly has one of the finest cricketing brains and the duo can surely leave an impact in the IPL 2023 season.

However, it won't be an easy ride keeping in mind that current skipper Rishabh Pant is likely to miss the tournament following a horror accident last week. The duo's first task will be to find a replacement skipper within the squad who can lead the team from the front.

Yes, Sourav will be back with Delhi Capitals 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 said.

If you look at Gautam Gambhir with Lucknow Super Giants and Durban Super Giants and Mahela Jayawardena with MI Emirates and MI Cape Town along with Mumbai Indians, the roles are becoming diverse as in foreign leagues, you aren't often dealing with the same set of players,” the source added.
