Sourav Ganguly, the former captain of the Indian team, has shown interest in becoming the future head coach of the Indian national cricket team. He is currently the president of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).
Also called Dada in the Indian team, he is one of the most successful captains of the national cricket team. Ganguly is also the team advisor of Delhi capitals (DC), an IPL franchise. Besides this, he is also a TV commentator and the host of a popular Bengali quiz show.
He has recently said that he is currently coaching IPL and is waiting to be Head Coach in future. But now he wants to continue what he is doing as he is associated with many things. Ganguly will grab the opportunity if it knocks his door.
“In any case, I am already a coach. I look after the Delhi Capitals in the IPL. In my first season last year, they did well. They went to the semifinals from being last for last seven years so it’s been good,” he further added.
“Currently, I’m associated with too many things — IPL, CAB, TV commentary. Let me complete this. But I will definitely put my hat at some stage. Provided I get selected. But definitely, I’m interested. Not now but in the future,” Ganguly had earlier said when the hunt was on to find the new Indian head coach.
