New Delhi:

Indian Premier League's Kolkata Knight Riders is likely to have Sourav Ganguly back as a captain due to skipper Brendon McCullum's non-availability, according to sources on Saturday.

It has been learnt that Sourav Ganguly and franchisee owner Shah Rukh Khan have discussed KKR captaincy in London.

Controversy-ridden Knight Riders, which floated the idea of 'multiple captaincy' to replace Ganguly with Brendon McCullum a day before the tournament, finished at the bottom of the table in IPL 2009 season.

With Brendon McCullum finding it tough to inspire his struggling team, former cricketers also felt Sourav Ganguly should have been handed back the captaincy of the side.
