Former India wicketkeeper and national selector Saba Karim was on Sunday appointed as the Delhi Capitals Talent Search Head for the Indian Premier League.
Until January, Kareem was the BCCI General Manager (Cricket Operations).
Kareem, 53, played 34 ODIs, not a single Test, from the mid-90s to the early 2000s before ending his career with a freak eye injury.
Commenting on joining as a Talent Scout, Kareem said, “I am very excited to launch my role as a Talent Scout for Delhi Capitals.”
“The IPL, over the years, has unleashed a lot of talent and continues to produce world-class action. Working with Delhi Capitals is an exciting team and I look forward to helping them grow further,” he added.
He also congratulated players who were away from their families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“First of all, I want to appreciate the incredible courage shown by the players during this year’s IPL,” Kareem said.
Staying away from their loved ones during this difficult time is not easy for anyone. Yet they surrounded and continued to play the tournament, for which they deserved the most credit. ”
