New Delhi: Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, who went unsold in this year’s IPL, is set to make a comeback in the fourth season of the T20 extravaganza with Kochi Tuskers Kerala, according to media reports which emerged on Friday.
Reports suggested that the former Kolkata Knight Riders’ skipper could come in as a replacement for the injured Steve Smith in the Kochi side, who lost both their matches in this edition.
Meanwhile, in contrast to the earlier report, the owners of the Kochi franchise have denied making any offer to the Kolkata icon, thus ruling out a possible comeback for Saurav Ganguly.
If included in the squad, the Kolkata fans will see their favourite son making a debut in Kochi colours against the Kolkata Knight Riders in Eden Gardens on April 20.
Ganguly was among the three Indian players who remained unsold in the IPL-IV auction that took place in January.
