Pune, May 3 (ANI): Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly has signed up with Pune Warriors as a replacement for injured pacer Ashish Nehra in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament.
"We were waiting for Ashish Nehra's fitness report and ultimately the report came yesterday. I was already in talks with Ganguly and we decided that the amount of experience that Sourav has in cricket will no doubt help the team. So, we finalised Ganguly last night," said Pune Warriors Team Director Abhijit Sarkar.
Ganguly, 38, who played for Kolkata Knight Riders for three IPL seasons, went unsold in the January players' auction despite a rather modest base price of USD 400,000.
He had a tough time with the Knight Riders and was also removed from captaincy in the second edition in South Africa. (ANI)
