IPL 2019: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly was seen batting during a Delhi Capitals practice session. Ganguly was batting without the pads. He was timing the ball brilliantly and was peppering the off-side, just like he used to do in his playing years. The silken touch and the sense of timing don’t seem to have diminished from Sourav Ganguly who is currently assisting Ricky Poting and the Delhi Capitals. While Ganguly was batting, the Capitals players were chanting ‘Old is Gold’ and were in awe of Sourav’s genius.
Here is the video where you can see Ganguly roll back the clock.
Ganguly has been one of the most successful captains of India, he is also credited for being the one to pioneer the process of India, from minnows to be world-beaters. The prince of Kolkata led India to the finals of the 2003 World Cup. He has also led KKR in the IPL.
Meanwhile, the Capitals got their campaign off to a brilliant start as they beat Mumbai Indians at Wankhede by 37 runs. There was a little stutter in the second match at the Kotla against the defending champions. CSK beat the Capitals by six wickets with two balls to spare.
For Delhi, the positives are Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan has also looked in good touch.
