Sourav Ganguly has been a visionary for India as his aggressive leadership brought upon a lot of success which included a host of overseas victories and a World Cup final appearance.

The hunt for the next coach is underway with the CAC overlooking the process. Ravi Shastri, the current coach is expected to continue after having backed heavily by Virat Kohli.

When asked about his interest in coaching the Indian team, Ganguly replied:

“Definitely, I’m interested but not at this point of time. Let one more phase go then I will throw my name into the fray,” 

The Prince of Bengal admitted that his current stints with the CAB, Delhi Capitals and in the commentary box make it difficult to apply now. He said:

“Currently, I’m associated with too many things — IPL, CAB, TV commentary. Let me complete this. But I will definitely put my hat at some stage. Provided I get selected. But definitely, I’m interested. Not now, but in the future,” 

To conclude, Ganguly commented on the upcoming T20 series against the West Indies which he claimed to be a tough test for the Indians in Florida. He stated:

“West Indies in West Indies will be a lot stronger. T20 is their preferred format. They enjoy playing T20s and they are the current World T20 Champions. The two matches in Florida will be tough games.”
