Sourav Ganguly will become the High Performance Manager of the Indian cricket team. According to report published in a English news website, the former Indian captain has agreed to take the job. As we reported earlier, BCCI wants former top players Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Ganguly to play important roles in Indian cricket. This seems to be results of that desire. If Ganguly takes the job, he will be the first High Performance Manager for the Indian cricket team. Cricket Australia have been using Pat Howard in a similar role for some time now. The report also said that BCCI wants Tendulkar to work with the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and Dravid to work with junior cricketers as a Talent Development Manager in Bengaluru. While Tendulkar’s role will involve interacting with senior cricketers, Dravid will most likely be the one to identify young talent and groom them for the Indian team. While Ganguly has agreed for his role, the other two former Indian captains want to know more details about their offered roles before they accept the same. They will probably wait until the end of the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) before making a final decision. Sachin is involved with Mumbai Indians as a mentor, while Dravid is the mentor of IPL side Rajasthan Royals.
