Former Indian cricket captain Saurav Ganguly is likely to be appointed the Indian team’s high performance manager or team director or chairman of the cricket advisory committee. While there is no clarity on the title or the role just yet, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will be deciding on Ganguly’s appointment in a meeting on Monday in Kolkata.

"Sourav's contribution to Indian cricket has been great. He's been a great cricketer. It will be worth waiting and whatever will be decided will be in the interest of the Indian cricket. There's a lot of speculation in the media regarding Sourav and the role of the coach. Give us some time to decide on that," Thakur told reporters after the IPL Governing Council meeting here.

Meanwhile, Ganguly has also told the board that he would only be interested in a BCCI position if given a longer duration. He wants to prepare a team for the 2019 World Cup.

It is understood that Sourav Ganguly was given the choice of becoming a Team Director or a High Performance Manager. And though he would prefer the former, that would also mean giving up his CAB post.
