Former Indian cricketer Pravin Amre has returned to Delhi Capitals’ team management but this time in a higher position. He had earlier served as the Head Talent Scout of the franchise between 2014-2019. But he is making comeback as the team’s assistant coach for the upcoming two seasons.
With Delhi Capitals’ already having a big name in their coaching staff led by Ricky Pointing, Pravin Amre’s addition has made the last season runner up’s team management a lot stronger. Former India players like Mohammed Kaif and Vijay Dahiya too are part of the management.
Pravin Amre assistant coach of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021:
Pravin Amre, who is also the personal mentor of the current stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane, expressed that he was grateful for coming back on Delhi Capital’s board.
“I am grateful to the Delhi Capitals management for having me on board. With the team having reached its very first IPL final in 2020, this is certainly an exciting time to be back there. I look forward to working with Ricky again, and all the players,” Amre said on his appointment.
“Ours is a team with an Indian core, and that thought process applies to our coaching staff as well. Few coaches know the domestic cricket scene in India as thoroughly as Amre does.
“He has been instrumental in getting the likes of Shreyas, Rishabh and Prithvi to our franchise, and his experience will once again be extremely valuable for us. We are delighted to have him on board,” DC CEO Dhiraj Malhotra said, on the latest development.
Pravin Amre, who played 11 Tests and 37 ODIs for India, has had a prolific run in domestic cricket as a player and coach. He coached Mumbai to three Ranji Trophy titles.
