Kapil Dev takes a dig at Ganguly

New Delhi, Jan 5: World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev on Friday wants Indian coaches to train Team India and felt former skipper Sourav Ganguly's initiative to bring in a foreign coach was not a good decision.

Kapil Dev also pointed out the trend being set by the former skipper Sourav Ganguly as Greg Chappell's name was recommended by the Prince of Kolkata.

"For foreign coaches communication remains a big problem. I am a big fan of home-grown coaches. I think Sourav Ganguly didn't do the right thing by calling in a foreign coach and setting the trend."

Moreover he also added there has been a misconception over the word 'coach'.

"There is a misconception about the word 'coach'. It is all about man management. For me the coach is the person who taught me the game. Only your team mates can tell you where you are going wrong," Kapil told reporters at New Delhi.

Talking about the team's inability to produce fast bowlers, he said "Being a fast bowler is a tough job. In India every young cricketer wants to become a Sunil Gavaskar or a Sachin Tendulkar. We don't have enough fast bowling role models. But in Pakistan every child who picks up the ball wants to be Imran, Wasim or Waqar."
