Sourav Ganguly, the former Captain of Indian Cricket Team, on the 2nd of August, shared his wish to become the Coach of the Indian Cricket Team, one day.
Ganguly said, “Definitely, I’m interested but not at this point of time. Let one more phase go then I will throw my name into the fray.”
When asked when he wants to become the Coach of the Team, Ganguly said, “Currently, I’m associated with too many things — IPL, CAB, TV commentary. Let me complete this. But I will definitely put my hat at some stage. Provided I get selected. But definitely I’m interested. Not now but in the future.”
Sourav Ganguly is currently working as an advisor of the Delhi Capitals team in the Indian Premier League (IPL.) He is also the chairman of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) and also works as a TV commentator.
The comments of Mr. Ganguly came after the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) started the hunt for a new coach.
Ravi Shastri, the current Coach of the Indian Cricket Team, ended his tenure with the International Council Cricket (ICC) World Cup 2019.
However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) extended Shastri’s tenure for the West Indies Tour 2019.
The CAC is scrutinising the applications received for the position and will soon announce the new Coach of the Indian Cricket Team.
Stay tuned for further updates.
