Dalmiya not ready to buy Ganguly’s view on local coaches


Posted: Aug 06, 2009 at 1959 hrs IST

Kolkata: Former ICC President, now Cricket Association of Bengal chief Jagmohan Dalmiya is not ready to buy former India captain Sourav Ganguly’s view that Bengal’s local coaches were being overlooked despite offering good service to the state in different levels.

Without naming Ganguly, who made his debut as cricket administrator in the CAB annual general meeting and threw some tricky questions to the Dalmiya administrations last month, the former BCCI president said the Bengal cricketer is also part of the system.

“He (Ganguly), who had raised the question was a part of the process that appointed (John) Wright and then he backed (Greg) Chappell when he replaced the New Zealander,” Dalmiya told a Bengali TV channel last night.

“It’s case of appointing the best for the side and the BCCI too has been following the same practice for more than 10 years now,” Dalmiya added.

“Wright was the first foreign coach of the Indian team and the tradition was continuing ever since. After Wright, we had (Greg) Chappell and now have (Gary) Kirsten as the coach,” the veteran cricket administrator said.
