BCCI has begun negotiations with cricket legends Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly for key roles in the national cricket set up. According to media reports Sourav Ganguly is set to take over as Team India’s high performance manager.
The BCCI wants legendary Sachin Tendulkar to help improve the NCA to be state-of-the-art training and research facility for players. The master blaster has agreed to BCCI’s offer in principle, but has also communicated to the board that he wished to know more details about his new job.
While Dravid, who is the mentor of the Rajasthan Royals , who is being looked at as a potential Talent Development Manager, is yet to confirm his availability for the role. Dravid informed the BCCI that he would only reach a decision after the conclusion of the IPL. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in its working Committee meeting last month had shown a desire in appointing legendary trio of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid as advisor’s on all cricket-related matters.
The BCCI has decided to seek the approval of the legendary trio to advise them on all important cricketing matters including the appointment of national coach.
