Mumbai: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly joined the Delhi Capitals as an advisor for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League, the team announced on Thursday.
Ganguly’s previous association with the IPL came in the 2012 season when he played for the Pune Warriors for two seasons, after having spent the previous three with his home franchise Kolkata Knight Riders.
“I am very pleased to come on board with the Delhi Capitals,” Ganguly said, on his association.
“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 Sourav. 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.

On March 26, the first home game will be played – Delhi capitals would be taking on the champions Chennai Super Kings at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium
