New Delhi : Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Delhi Daredevils announced on Monday that former Australian all-rounder James Hopes has been appointed as its new bowling coach for the upcoming season of the lucrative Twenty20 tournament.

 The Daredevils also confirmed that former Assam and Railways cricketer Subhadeep Ghosh will take over as the fielding coach. 

The duo will now join the staff led by head coach and former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, who was also confirmed in his role earlier this month.

"The rest of the coaching staff, however, will continue to be the same with former cricketers Pravin Amre and Sridharan Sriram as assistant coaches. Sunil Valson is the team manager, whereas Paul Close continues in his role as physiotherapist along with Rajinikanth Sivagnanam as the fitness coach," Delhi Daredevils Chief Executive Hemant Dua said in a statement.

Hopes featured in 84 One-Day Internationals (ODI) and 12 Twenty20 Internationals (T20I) for Australia. He has also represented Queensland in Australia's domestic cricket for close to 15 years. 

He has also played in the IPL for three teams, including for the Delhi Daredevils in 2011. He retired from all forms of cricket in 2016 before moving into a coaching role for both Queensland and Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League (BBL) -- Australia's domestic T20 tournament.
