Things won't be as easy as it was in his first stint in 1993-94. For starters, Mumbai in all probability will not have the services of their last season's skipper Sairaj Bahutule.
It may be mentioned that in 1993-94, Ghavri had Ravi Shastri leading the side that won the Ranji Trophy after an eight-year gap.
Ghavri's track record as coach of Mumbai is blemishless.
The only season he coached, Mumbai won both the Ranji Trophy One-dayers and the longer version.
Ghavri returned to Mumbai yesterday after putting behind a disappointing two-year spell with Bengal.
The 54-year-old former left-arm pace bowler who had partnered the legendary Kapil Dev at the beginning of the latter's international career has come a long way since 1970, the year he landed in Mumbai from Rajkot to pursue his dreams.
