The 36-year-old, who has coached Goa in the Ranji Trophy and took them to the semifinals of the Plate Division last season, was introduced as the coach of the KPL franchise by team owner S Shivasankarappa at a press conference in Davangere on Sunday.

“I am looking forward to the assignment. I believe there is as much, if not more, talent in the districts as there is in Bangalore. My role will be to try and bring the best out of the team,” said Ganesh, who finished his first-class career with 365 wickets from 104 matches.

Once the auction for the elite pool of State players is over and done with on August 14, and the entire squad assembled thereafter, the Hubli-Dharwad boys will have a three-week conditioning camp ahead of the start of the KPL, now fixed at September 9.

Former Karnataka batsman B Siddarama has been appointed the Chief Executive Officer of the Hubli-Dharwad team.

The support staff: CEO: B Siddarama (CEO). PRO: P S Viswanath. Coach: Doddanarasiah Ganesh. Assistant coach: Nagaraj (Davangere). Trainer: Jeet Devaiah. Physiotherapist: Pinakin Aire. Video analyst: Anil Kumar.
