Ever since Duncan Fletcher’s tenure as India’s coach reached his terminal date there have been talks about the Board of Control for Cricket hiring Sourav Ganguly as India’s national coach. Ganguly though denied the rumours. Infact, in their working committee meeting on Sunday, the board has expressed its desire to consult the legendary trio of Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and Ganguly on all cricket related matters, including the selection of the national coach reported NDTV.

Both Ganguly, Dravid were talked about as being the successor to Duncan Fletcher but nothing substantial has come out of it. Now that they have been wished to appoint them along with Tendulkar as cricket advisors, it remains to be seen who is given the reigns of Indian Cricket. Other Indian names being considered include Ravi Shastri who is presently India’s team director, Sanjay Bangar, Bharat Arun and R Sridhar. The possibility of BCCI appointing another overseas coach can’t be written off and Stephen Fleming and Michael Hussey are on the radar to take up the position.
