Delhi Capitals on Tuesday named the former Australian pacer Ryan Harris as their bowling coach for the Upcoming IPL 2020.
The former pacer will join the squad ahead of the season start from September 19 next month. This comes after the team’s usual coach James Hopes couldn’t travel with the team to UAE due to personal reasons.
Now Harris will be taking over to fill the void for this season as he said, “I am delighted to be back in the IPL,”
“This is a huge opportunity for me to contribute to the franchise’s ambitions of lifting the coveted IPL trophy. The Delhi Capitals side has an impressive bowling line up, and I can’t wait to start working with them all.” he added.
Harris was a part of the IPL winning franchise Deccan Chargers back in 2009 when they defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the finals.
The 40-year-old announced retirement from the international cricket in 2015 and since then he has taken up the coaching roles. Post his retirement, Harris had stints with the Australian team, Brisbane Heat in BBL and Kings XI Punjab in the IPL.
This will be his second coaching assignment with another IPL team as he joins Ricky Ponting, Mohammad Kaif, Samuel Badree and Vijay Dahiya in the camp.
