'Choose coach, institution wisely', says Sourav Ganguly as BCCI looks for Rahul Dravid's successor; what ex-skipper said

It appears that the BCCI is in no hurry to select current head coach Rahul Dravid's successor. The deadline for receiving applications for the post was May 27.

While the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is hunting for the next head coach to guide the Indian cricket team, the one name that is doing the rounds is former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir.

Though nothing concrete has been decided as of yet, and the BCCI has not indicated its decision, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly urged the board to choose the coach and institution wisely.

Taking to X, Ganguly has suggested, "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…"

Here's the tweet

The deadline for receiving applications for the top post was May 27, but it appears the BCCI is in no hurry to select current head coach Rahul Dravid's successor. This may be because the BCCI's entire focus is on the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies, which kicks off on June 1.

According to a PTI report, if no decision is taken, the National Cricket Academy (NCA) coaches can go with the team in some future tours.

"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 the month 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.

Meanwhile, the Kolkata Knight Riders mentor Gautam Gambhir had a friendly meeting with BCCI secretary Jay Shah after the IPL 2024 final on Sunday.
