BCCI should tap ‘Dada’s capability’, feels Little Master


Mumbai:The little master Sunil Manohar Gavaskar feels the Prince Of Calcutta Sourav Ganguly’s “capability” should be tapped by the Board of Control for Cricket in India to take Indian cricket to a new height. But such a possibility can only be made possible provided Sourav gives time for such a job.

Asked if Ganguly is the right candidate to replace Ravi Shastri as the overall head of support staff (Team Director/High Performance Manager), Gavaskar told NDTV, “Depends on the time he (Ganguly) has. He has a lot of commitments. Don’t forget that he is also the joint secretary of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) which is a very time consuming job. But a man of his capability, provided he has time, can bring a lot of positivity.” Gavaskar also made it clear that if Ganguly is made the High Performance Manager or Team Director, then the chief coach’s post doesn’t hold much of a significance.”It all depends on how the BCCI is looking at it. If Sourav becomes High Performance Manager, then he might just want a batting coach, bowling coach and fielding coach of his choice,” said Gavaskar.
