Indian cricket team needs Sourav Ganguly as its coach
With India's poor show under Duncan Fletcher, there has been calls from several quarters asking for Fletcher's removal from the prestigious job. There are a number of former Indian players such as Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, who are capable of taking the baton from Duncan Fletcher. Many feel that out of these players, Ganguly could be the right man for the coveted post in world cricket. It was in fact, Ganguly, who changed the face of the Indian team for good, so the same can happen if he becomes the coach as well.
"Yes, Sourav Ganguly can be a great coach with his man
management skills. His rich experience in international
cricket, where he captained India as well could help him in
coaching the Indian team. He is one of most respected
cricketer amongst the younger generation and gaining respect
from players can make a big difference in the team."
Ghavri, Former Indian cricketer
"Sourav is not calm and reacts to things very quickly on a
given situation, which is not good for any coach. You cannot
react spontaneously, as we have seen him on the cricket
field?reacting, when players drop catches. Though, he is a
good student of the game, he will not make a good coach. I
feel, Rahul Dravid is the best candidate for the job."
