Ganguly keen on coaching Team India

New Delhi, Sep 6: Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly has expressed his desire to coach Team India in future if he is offered, and feels he can definitely create a difference to Team India's fortunes.

Ganguly, who has been a successful leader, hints at coaching Team India in future if BCCI offers him a job.

The prince of Kolkata, had led India to 21 wins off 49 Tests, which included 11 wins abroad. Now, feels he can also contribute to the game that won him accolades while playing for India, as he told Aaj Tak on Wednesday.

"Obviously, I have interest in coaching but only time will tell what can happen in future. If the BCCI feels that I can be a good coach, I will be ready. I feel I can create a difference in terms of the ability, form and development of the players. That will be the way for me to repay the game," said Ganguly.

Ganguly who thought foreign coaches were the best, now felt Indians should take over as coach and was all praise for Lalchand Rajput, who was the coach of the Indian Cricket team when India won the T20 World Cup in 2007 and CB Series in 2008.

"Different captains and different coaches brought in the culture within the team where the players believed they could do well abroad. But the Indian cricket is well aware of the modern techniques now. Don't forget we won the World T20 in 2007 and the CB Series in 2008 under Lalchand Rajput," Ganguly said.

With this statement Ganguly had made his intentions clear as he has set his eyes on coaching Team India in future. He could help the team win matches, but when it comes to handling the team members and the relationship that matters, will Ganguly fit in is one big question that leaves everyone pondering.
