"Whatmore is very experienced and I'm looking forward to his association," Ganguly added.
After leading the team in the inaugural IPL, Ganguly fell out with the then coach John Buchanan, who first mooted the "multi-captaincy" idea, which did not find favour with the management. McCullum led the side in the second IPL but came a cropper.
