Sourav Ganguly Comments about India's Next Head Coach

During the debate surrounding the selection of India's new head coach, Sourav Ganguly, the captain of the national cricket team, posted an interesting comment on social media.

The search is on for the next head coach of the Indian cricket team, and several names have surfaced as contenders for the highly sought-after role. After the next T20 World Cup in 2024, head coach Rahul Dravid's term comes to an end, and according to media sources, the BCCI has already made contact with a few candidates for the position. Currently, Ashish Nehra and Gautam Gambhir are the most favoured names; international coaches are less interested in these players. Sourav Ganguly, the former captain of the Indian cricket team, posted an interesting comment on social media during the debate about the role.

"The coach's significance in one's life, their guidance, and relentless training shape the future of any person, both on and off the field. So, choose the coach and institution wisely…," he posted on X (formerly Twitter).

Applications were accepted until May 27, but rumours have it that the BCCI is taking its time choosing Dravid's replacement. The National Cricket Academy (NCA) coaches may accompany the Indian cricket team on some upcoming tours if no decision is made. The players of the Indian cricket team are presently concentrating on the T20 World Cup 2024, according to the report.

"The deadline is fine, but the BCCI brass wouldn't mind taking some more time before reaching a decision. Right now, the team will be busy with World T20 for the better part of June. After that seniors will be rested from tours of Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe where any of the NCA-based senior coaches can accompany the team. So, what's the hurry," a BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
