Sourav Ganguly has asked for more clarity on his role as advisor to the Indian Cricket Team after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) inducted him into the advisory team alongside fellow Cricket greats Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman. When asked about what he expects to do or whether he will travel with the current squad for the tour of Bangladesh, Ganguly stated that he does not have any clue about what the advisory committee will do. Sachin Tendulkar to advice on international tours, VVS Laxman to scout talent.
BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya and Secretary Anurag Thakur in a statement earlier in the day had revealed that the Indian cricket legends will be a part of the newly formed panel to spearhead the decisions that will further enhance the growth of the sport in the country. Ganguly, who featured for India from 1992 to 2008, says he is only aware of that the committee has been formed and that Tendulkar and Laxman are part of it. He stressed that he has not been briefed about what role will he and his compatriots will play in the coming days.
So far, the Indian cricket team is without a coach following the departure of Dunacn Fletcher. Following the induction of Ganguly, Tendulkar and Laxman, rumours suggest that Rahul Dravid could be roped in as the coach. Ravi Shastri was acting as the team director till the end of ICC World Cup 2015 following dismal performance against Australia and England.
