Sachin, Ganguly and VVS to be part of BCCI's advisory panel

MUMBAI: Three of India's most accomplished former cricketers - with a little over 60,000 international runs among them - were invited by the BCCI on Monday to form part of a new cricket advisory committee with immediate effect.
Sachin Tendulkar, globally respected as the world's best batsman; Sourav Ganguly, an astute skipper who taught India how to win overseas and VVS Laxman, the elegant right-hander who gave the mighty Australians a decade long nightmare, have accepted the board's invitation to be part of the committee.
Their focus, once they're formally brought on board, will be to advise the BCCI on the various progressive steps needed to take Indian cricket forward. The trio will first meet president Jagmohan Dalmiya and secretary Anurag Thakur in Kolkata before the Indian team departs for Bangladesh, PTI reported.
A statement issued by the board, which didn't go into the specifics of their roles, said that the "areas of immediate focus will be to provide guidance to our national team as we set out to enhance our performance in 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".
