New Delhi: If given a chance former India captain Sourav Ganguly is ready to take up the coaching job of Indian cricket team in the near future.

“Obviously, I have interest in coaching but only time will tell what can happen in future. If the BCCI feels that I can be a good coach, I will be ready. I feel I can create a difference in terms of the ability, form and development of the players. That will be the way for me to repay the game,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by a news channel.

Ganguly, once a strong advocate of foreign coaches, feels that it is time an Indian take over the top job.

“Different captains and different coaches brought in the culture within the team where the players believed they could do well abroad. But the Indian cricket is well aware of the modern techniques now. Don`t forget we won the World T20 in 2007 and the CB Series in 2008 under Lalchand Rajput,” Ganguly said.
