Sourav Ganguly: Former Indian captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly responded to reports that Rahul Dravid took over as Indian head coach of Ravi Shastri after the 2021 T20 World Cup, and India’s head coach of Ravi Shastri after the 2021 T20 World Cup, Ganguly said.
He “did not confirm” Dravid’s appointment, but added that the BCCI discussed the proposal in their last meeting with him in Dubai during the IPL.
However, the former Indian captain, who has played a lot of cricket with Dravid, added that the training proposal was re-sent to Dravid and asked the former Indian captain for time to analyze it before receiving a reply.
“Right now, he is the director of NCA. He came to meet us in Dubai to talk about NCA. How to take it forward. We all believe the NCA has a big role in developing the future of Indian cricket. NCA creates the next generation of Indian cricketers. So, he wanted to discuss that,” Ganguly added.
“We had a chat with him earlier too on whether he wants to take up the coaching role of the senior side but he didn’t seem that interested. His stand is pretty much the same even now. He asked for some time. Let’s see what happens,” Ganguly said.
