Don't know about my role in BCCI advisory committee, says Ganguly

Kolkata: He is still not clear about his role in the BCCI's newly-constituted advisory committee, but former India cricket captain Sourav Ganguly on Monday said he is happy to be clubbed with Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman in the panel.

"I have just come to know about the committee, rest I don't know. I don't even know what is the role of the advisory committee. (But) I am happy to work with Sachin and Laxman," Ganguly told reporters.

Tendulkar, Ganguly and Laxman were on Monday inducted into the advisory committee to guide the Board and the national team on various "progressive steps" needed for future challenges.

Spelling out their role in the committee, the BCCI said the three legends' guidance will be sought in preparing the national team for gruelling overseas assignments besides strengthening the domestic structure.

"Areas of immediate focus will be to provide guidance to our national team as we set out to enhance our performance on overseas engagements, provide direction to improve our talent pathway and take steps to strengthen domestic cricket to better prepare our players to handle the rigours of International Cricket," the BCCI stated.
