Pune Warriors India captain Sourav Ganguly has decided not to play in the Indian Premier League anymore, sources told CNN-IBN on Sunday.

Apparently, the former India captain and franchise have reached an agreement, which discharges Ganguly from his duties with immediate effect. He also won't keep his mentoring role.

Ganguly, who played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the first three editions, was made captain in IPL5 after Pune's regular captain Yuvraj Singh was diagnosed with cancer.
