Cricket news - Delhi Capitals appoint Patrick Farhart as Head Physio

Farhat has signed a three-year deal with Delhi Capitals

Former India physiotherapist Patrick Farhart has been snapped up by IPL franchise Delhi Capitals on a three-season (2020-2022) deal. Farhart, who stepped down from his India role at the end of the 2019 World Cup last month, has previously worked with Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab in the IPL.

"I am delighted to be working in the Indian Premier League again," Farhart said. "Delhi Capitals is a team that has made some very positive changes in its setup over the last couple of years, and the result is there to see in the side's third-place finish in the 2019 season.

"It is certainly a team that is on its way up, and I am excited to be working with the players and support staff members in the upcoming seasons of the tournament," Farhart added.

Farhat, along with fitness coach Shankar Basu, worked as the head physio of the Indian men's team for four years post his appointment in 2015. Before that he took on similar roles with Australia, Sydney Sixers and New South Wales.

"There is no doubt that he is among the best in the business," Delhi Capitals CEO Dhiraj Malhotra said. "Patrick not only has an enviable body of work, but he also commands tremendous amount of respect among cricketers. I am absolutely confident that our players will benefit hugely from Patrick's presence."

Delhi Capitals are one of three teams that played in 2008 to still to lift the IPL trophy. Ahead of the 2018 season, the GMR group - who purchased the franchise ahead of the inaugural edition - entered into a 50-50 partnership with Mumbai-based steel company Jindal South West (JSW) for the ownership of the team. A change of team name (from Delhi Daredevils) and a youth-centric selection policy is hoped to herald a new phase in the club's history.
