Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has remained tight-lipped on the prospect of taking over the role of coach of the Indian cricket team, a position that has been vacant after Duncan Fletcher’s regime came to an end after the World Cup.

“I don’t want to say anything on this. Let’s not speculate. Don’t jump the gun,” Ganguly said.

Newspaper reports have suggested that Ganguly expressed a desire to fill the void to new BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya.

However, Ganguly denied these reports. “No. Who says all this? The BCCI haven’t spoken to anyone and neither have I spoken to them. That’s the truth and let’s stick to that,” he said.

“I meet Dalmiya everyday because of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB). He is the president and I am the joint secretary.”

Rahul Dravid is another former player who has been linked with the job.

When asked about Dravid and his own credentials to coach the national team, Ganguly had positive words to say.

“Both can be (good coaches). Rahul was a great player,” he said.
