The legendary veterans of Indian Cricket have been playing a crucial role in driving the sport across the country and the club of former players who are now leading the team would welcome the Master soon as the Indian Cricket Board has been sketching a plan to get Sachin Tendulkar onboard to a top post. The plan is being made by BCCI Secretary Jay Shah and the outcome of the plan would be to bring the iconic batsman to the front.
Former Cricketers Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, and VVS Laxman have been busy leading the sport. While Ganguly heads the Indian Cricket Board - BCCI, Dravid coaches the Indian men cricket team while Laxman oversees the National Cricket Academy. In hitherto, Sachin was not been a part of the governing body of Indian cricket and previously, he was among a committee that consists of Ganguly and Laxman to recruit the coaches.
Post his retirement, Sachin Tendulkar has been attached to cricket directly only through his mentorship for Mumbai Indians. Now, the reports say that the planning is in progress to rope Sachin to a top post. If Sachin comes in, the major names during Ganguly's era will join together again to govern the sport in India. While three major names - Ganguly, Dravid, and Laxman have come together, the door is most likely open for Sachin Tendulkar.
According to reports, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah is trying to convince Sachin Tendulkar to get into some role in the near future. Some of the BCCI members in the know said, "We are told that he (Jay Shah) is now trying to convince Sachin Tendulkar to get into some role in the near future." It must be noted that Jay Shah has earlier convinced Dravid to take up the post of head coach of the men's team while Shah had played a vital role in roping in MS Dhoni as the mentor for the Indian team in the recently concluded T20 world cup.
The reports say that Jay Shah has been making efforts to get Sachin into a top role and if the master comes in, he would be relinquishing his role as a mentor with Mumbai Indians. Sachin, who still stands tall as the highest run-scorer in the history of cricket, has played for Team India in all formats for more than two decades. He opened up the path to achieve the impossible and had held immense dominance throughout his career. The plan is being made as the BCCI thinks that Sachin's induction will give a big boost to the development of Indian cricket.
