If he has applied, Gautam Gambhir would be a good coach for India: Sourav Ganguly | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Gautam Gambhir would make a “good coach” for the Indian cricket team, according to former captain Sourav Ganguly, if he had sought for the role. Ganguly also supported the hiring of a domestic player to the prominent role.
During his speech at the International Procurement and Supply Chain Conference’s opening in Mumbai, Ganguly discussed India’s prospects for the next Twenty20 World Cup.
“I am in favour of an Indian coach. If he has applied, Gambhir will be a good coach,” Ganguly said.
After a ten-year break, former World Cup-winning batter Gambhir guided his former team, Kolkata Knight Riders, to their third IPL championship.
When Rahul Dravid stands down at the end of India’s T20 World Cup campaign, the former left-handed opener for the country looks to be the front-runner for the job.
Jay Shah, the secretary of the BCCI, also made a suggestion a few days ago that an Indian coach would be desirable.
“Finding the right coach for our national team is a meticulous and thorough process. We are focused on identifying individuals who possess a deep understanding of the Indian cricket structure and have risen through the ranks,” Shah had said.
A thorough understanding of Indian domestic cricket would be a crucial requirement for selecting the next coach, according to the BCCI secretary. He said the understanding would be crucial to “truly elevate Team India to the next level.”
India have good chance of winning T20 WC
Ganguly added that India is a serious contender to win the T20 World Cup. The event, which is co-hosted by the USA and the West Indies, begins on Saturday.
“India have very good chances in the World Cup. India will have to play like a T20 team. There is enormous talent,” he said.
