"I think it is the step in the right direction, provided they (BCCI) are able to define the positive role of the advisory committee. We will have to see what kind of an authority does this committee have? And it's very nice that people like Sachin, Laxman and Ganguly have offered to come forward," Bedi said.
"But again the whole thing has to be defined properly by the BCCI. It should not be a one off kind of thing which is a shot in the air,'' the legendary spinner added.

Tendulkar, Ganguly and Laxman will guide the Board and the national team on various "progressive steps" needed for future challenges, but Bedi wants the legendary trio to play a concrete part in the game's management.
"A casual advise is what is not needed from the advisory committee, with the final call coming from the BCCI and that kind of an arrangement will not be desirable. Their role should not be overlapping in any way," the former India
skipper said.
With some veteran players also wanting a slice of the pie, Bedi believes that these recently retired players are right candidates to ideate on the modern game.
"These are recently retired people, familiar with the recent ideas of the game. If there are players from the bygone era, who are commentating and writing about the game then it is up to BCCI to take a call," he said.
