IPL 2023: Ex-BCCI Prez returns to DC as Head of Cricket, Sourav Ganguly Delhi Capitals, Rishabh Pant, Ricky Ponting, Sourav Ganguly IPL 2023, Sourav Ganguly DC

“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.

It is understood that Delhi Capitals’ recent auction picks had both head coach Ricky Ponting and Ganguly’s footprints.

Ganguly and Ponting’s 2nd innings together will begin with the identification of their new captain for IPL 2023. With Rishabh Pant out fo IPL 2023 after suffering a horrific car crash, DC need a temporary new captain.

The most senior player with captaincy experience, David Warner, would assume the leadership role. Manish Pandey is another choice, but it seems unlikely given that he recently joined the team. In any event, DC won’t reveal the new captain until near the competition.

Delhi Capitals lack a qualified backup keeper to replace Pant in their team.

They do have Sarfaraz Khan, but he has only played sporadically and is not confirmed to start for Delhi’s XI. Khan has some experience keeping wickets in domestic cricket. Another possible option on the DC roster is Phil Salt, but Salt doesn’t play regularly for his home or Hundred clubs either, so adding Salt in the middle order would throw off the overseas lineup.
