Two seasons after Paras Mhambrey quit as Bengal coach over a contractual disagreement,the Cricket Association of Bengal has approached the former India bowler to take back the reins.
CAB president Jagmohan Dalmiya has offered the Baroda coach the top job amid speculation that incumbent Utpal Chatterjee is set to resign after the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
Mhambrey confirmed that he had been sounded out by the association,but was yet to decide on it. Yes,there is an offer. But there are too many parameters for me to deal with at this stage. Firstly,I am contracted with Vadodara Cricket Association for another year. It means I have to serve that period out or else that contract has to be bought over by the CAB. So,its too early to do anything about it now, Mhambrey said on Saturday.
During his previous stint,Mhambrey had guided Bengal to the Ranji Trophy final twice. However,he fell out with the association after the change of guard at the CAB.
Mhambrey is currently on a Rs24-lakh per year contract with Baroda and has signed up for another year.
