Indian cricket has entered a new era with some of the legends of the game taking up different roles in administration and management. As the national side are on their quest to become a formidable force across all formats in all conditions, some big names have come on board to help the players in the process.
To begin with, one of the most successful leaders in international cricket – Sourav Ganguly was appointed as BCCI president. As it turned out, things began to change and the recent appointments of Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman as head coach and NCA head, respectively, was a testimony to the same. But still, there is one final piece still missing in the puzzle!
India’s Fab 4 set to re-unite once again?
Among the famous Fab 4 of Indian cricket, Sachin Tendulkar is not yet involved with the national side right now. But much to the delight of all fans, the day might not be far when the Master Blaster is also back in the scheme of things.
After successfully convincing Dravid and Laxman to take up the respective roles, BCCI secretary Jay Shah is reportedly in talks with Sachin Tendulkar now to get him into some position of authority in Indian cricket where he can make a difference.
A BCCI member said, “He’s (Shah) been off the media radar but absolutely clear about what is the right thing to do. Little things that matter. For instance, appointing Rahul Dravid as head coach, ensuring someone of the stature of VVS Laxman gets associated with the National Cricket Academy (NCA). We’re told he’s now trying to convince Sachin Tendulkar to get into some role in the near future,” as quoted by Times of India.
Sachin Tendulkar will also be with Indian cricket in future: Ganguly
It must be noted that BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had also opened up on the possibility of getting Sachin Tendulkar on board in some capacity. “At some point, Sachin Tendulkar will also be with Indian cricket in future, we need to work out,” Ganguly had told senior sports journalist Boria Majumdar.
It will be interesting to see what role Master Blaster takes up, if the board actually manages to convince him to return to serve the national side.
