Not used to throwing my hat anywhere: Sourav on coaching

Sports No Comments on Not used to throwing my hat anywhere: Sourav on coaching 11

Kolkata, March 15 (IANS) Ex-India captain Sourav Ganguly asserted Saturday that the expertise of former greats can be utilised for developing the current cricket team even as he refused to “throw in my hat for the job”.

“When you have players like Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and Anil Kumble, their services can always be sought. But it depends upon how much time they can devote. It’s an individual decision for every cricketer what he wants do in life. I think it should be left to them,” Ganguly said while reacting to Sunil Gavaskar’s call that Dravid should replace current India coach Duncan Fletcher.

With Dravid declining Gavaskar’s suggestions citing time constraints, Ganguly, when asked if he will try for the job, replied: “I’m not used to throwing my hat anywhere. Dravid has just retired from international cricket and it would be difficult for him to be on the road for 11 months,” said Ganguly defending Dravid’s decision.
