Always wanted to return to cricket. You can say I am a happy man," Ganguly, who had captained <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/kolkata-knight-riders">Kolkata Knight Riders</a> (KKR) and now defunct <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/pune-warriors">Pune Warriors</a> in the cash-rich league, said. <p></p> <p></p>"Yes, I was the captain of KKR. But this role is totally different from that. Playing on the field is different from providing inputs sitting in the dugout. As a captain, I also had to execute the plans on the field. But this time the onus is on the cricketers to perform."

There are some brilliant talents in the franchise. Hopefully, we will have a great IPL."
