Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has said that it’s not a problem of skill but rather the lack of overseas bowling virtuosity that has repeatedly haunted the Indian team overseas. Ganguly feels that Indian bowlers are in desperate need of guidance and Anil Kumble can do the same with his experience of bowling overseas. 

Ganguly said:

“I do not think it is a problem of skill or talent. I see a lot of that. What our bowlers need is proper guidance,” said the former captain, who led India to 21 Test wins. “I was fortunate to have good spinners like Anil (Kumble) in my side. Someone like him should be spending more time with our bowlers.”

“Our bowlers have targeted middle-stump. The reason why (Nathan) Lyon has picked so many wickets is because he has focused on the region just outside off. That is the right place. 

“These are the small problems that Kumble can help our bowlers fix.” 

India lost the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2014-15 (2-0) and Mohammad Shami, the second highest wicket-taker in the series (15), was heavily punished throughout the series. With India’s next overseas assignment scheduled to take place in 2017 and considering the great performances of Anil Kumble overseas during his time as player, BCCI might consider his name for the bowling coach.
