Dada shows interest in ‘getting involved’ with Bengal Team


Kolkata: At the AGM of the CAB on Monday, Sourav Ganguly began his second year as Cricket Association of Bengal joint secretary. Sourav was quoted saying that he would “get involved” with the state team but did not disclose in what capacity. “Our main focus is to improve the standard of cricket as we feel our (senior) team has not done well (in Ranji Trophy). “I’ll remain involved but in what capacity that we will see,” Ganguly said. Asked about the appointment of Bengal’s coach for the upcoming season, he said: “The announcement will be done in the next three-four days.. “Now that the AGM is over we will have to take a decision on the appointment soon as the season will start soon.” There had been reports that Ganguly might take up a top post like that of an adviser to the senior team as a fallout of the Ranji team’s continued flop show. Ganguly though rubbished the rumour: “It’s all speculation. We cannot comment without discussing the matter with the president.”
