The current CAB president said that he has plans on coaching the Men in Blue
Former India skipper and current Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly opened up about his ambition to coach the Indian Cricket Team. He dropped some hints earlier about his plans to be the head coach.
Ganguly did not submit an application for the head coach position when the Board of Control for Cricket in India opened employment for the team’s new support staff after the ICC Cricket World Cup. There were a lot of applicants who were interested in the post. After the interviews were conducted, Ravi Shastri retained his position as the team’s head coach.
'Let one coach finish, then we will think about the other coach', Ganguly told reporters.
'In any case I am already a coach. I look after the Delhi Capitals in the IPL. In my first season last year, they did well. They went to the semifinals from being last for last seven years so it’s been good', he added.
Ganguly also spoke about India. He believes that they are favourites in the T20I and Test series against the Proteas. The Men in Blue is currently participating in a home series against the South African Cricket Team.
‘India are favourites. India at home is a dangerous team. They are very hard to beat and that’s been the case for years’, he said.
Sourav Ganguly is one of the world’s leading batsmen who earned a lot of records in his career. He is one of the four members of the governing council of the Indian Premier League. To know more about the IPL, check out the page at Betwala.
