Ganguly as Team India’s Coach After Duncan Fletcher?
As the current coach of Team India Duncan Fletcher’s contract with BCCI will be ending in a few days, the question ‘who will be Team India’s next coach?’ has become the hot topic. Rumors created confusion on 1st april that God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar will be replacing the current Coach Duncan Fletcher. After 24 hours of excitement and anxiety, it was declared to be a fool’s day prank played by a leading media channel’s reporters. But the news about Ganguly is reportedly true as officials have considered Saurav Ganguly’s name in the list of a few players being scrutinized to be selected as the next coach of Indian Cricket Team.
Saurav Ganguly, ‘The Prince of Kolkata’ was the one who brought in passion and aggression in Indian cricket team during his tenure as captain. Jagan Mohan Dalmia being appointed as BCCI Charman has improvised Ganguly’s chances of being selected as coach as the duo hail from Bengali background. In case Ganguly fails, there is scope for Telugu player Bharath Arun to be selected for the position. Ravi Sastry has recommended Bharath Arun, who is currently serving as bowling coach for Team India. A decision will be taken about Team India’s in the near future. We have to wait to see whether one of the two will be selected or any new person comes into the picture.
