IPL 2021: JSW and GMR co-owned Delhi Capitals today announced the appointment of Pravin Amre as the team’s Assistant Coach for the upcoming two seasons of the Indian Premier League. 52-year-old Amre, who served as the franchise’s Head Talent Scout between 2014-2019, will join the existing coaching staff of Delhi Capitals.
On his appointment, Amre said, “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.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Pravin Amre back to the Delhi Capitals side,” said CEO Dhiraj Malhotra, on the latest development. “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.”
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, and has also worked as a personal coach with several India internationals.
