Former India batsman Pravin Amre has returned to Delhi Capitals as their assistant coach for the next two editions, the franchise announced on Wednesday (January 6). Amre, who has previously worked with the franchise as the Head Talent Scout between 2014-2019, will return to bolster the Capitals' coaching unit.

Amre was briefly associated with Mumbai Indians as a part of their talent scout team since the end of 2019. He has also previously coached Mumbai to three Ranji Trophy titles. The 52-year-old has played 11 Tests and 37 ODIs for India.

"I am grateful to the Delhi Capitals management for having me on board," Amre said. "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."

Capitals CEO Dhiraj Malhotra expressed delight in having Amre back in the fold while crediting him for the acquisitions of the young Indian trio - Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw.

"Ours is a team with an Indian core, and that thought process applies to our coaching staff as well," he said. "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."

Delhi Capitals reached the IPL final for the first time in their history in the 2019 edition where they lost to Mumbai Indians.
