The Indian Premier League 2023 has witnessed a very poor performance for the Delhi Capitals franchise. Against this backdrop, the team management of Delhi seems to be preparing to take a big decision. Head coach Ricky Ponting is said to be leaving Delhi Capitals ahead of the upcoming season. Sourav Ganguly’s name is being discussed as the new head coach of Delhi.
Ricky Ponting became the coach of Delhi Capitals for the first time in IPL 2018. After that, the Delhi Capitals team has played under his guidance in the last six IPL seasons. On the other hand, Sourav Ganguly is also performing the role of the director of Delhi Capitals for the last two years. Earlier in IPL 2019, Ganguly has also played the role of Delhi’s mentor. Shreyas Iyer was the captain of Delhi Capitals when Ganguly mentored the team in 2019 and the team reached the clincher two.
According to media reports, Ricky Ponting is going to leave the team after the poor performance of Delhi Capitals under the leadership of David Warner last year. The post of head coach of the team will be handed over to Sourav Ganguly in the upcoming IPL season. Bengali newspaper ‘Sangbad Daily’ has given a detailed report about this. According to reports, Ganguly may take up the role of Delhi’s head coach in IPL 2023. On the other hand, Ponting has decided to leave the team. After these reports in the media, there is a strong discussion about this on social media as well.
However, there has been no official word on this from the franchise, Ponting or Ganguly. The fans are paying attention to what the team will decide about this in the coming time. (Sourav Ganguly will replace Ricky Ponting as the head coach of Delhi Capitals, according to media reports.)
