New panel to meet in Kolkata before Bangla tour
New Delhi: The newly appointed cricket advisory panel comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman will have its first meeting in Kolkata with president Jagmohan Dalmiya and secretary Anurag Thakur before the Indian team departs for Bangladesh.
“The meeting will be held on June 4th or 5th tentatively. The committee will meet the president and secretary to chalk out the blueprint for moving ahead,” a source told PTI today.
It is likely that the Dalmiya and Thakur would seek the trio’s opinion on the appointment of support staff for the national team.
It will also be clear whether anyone among the three will be travelling to Bangladesh with the team, or it will entirely be an Indian support staff for the upcoming tour.
Ganguly, who is also the secretary of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), is in Kolkata, and Laxman will also be in the city for CAB’s Vision 2020 project.
