Suspense over the role for former captain Rahul Dravid in the BCCI continued on Tuesday with Board Secretary Anurag Thakur saying that his services would be sought at an appropriate time.

“For any cricketer of that stature, BCCI would like to have their services. When the time comes, an announcement will be made. Not everybody can be on the same panel,” Thakur told ‘Times Now’ explaining Dravid’s absence from the newly-constituted BCCI cricket advisory panel.

The panel comprises former greats Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.

“For the betterment of cricket, we will need their advice, they were part of the golden generation,” Thakur said.

The committee has been mandated to guide the Board and the national team on various “progressive steps” needed for future challenges.

The BCCI said the three legends’ guidance will be sought in preparing the national team for gruelling overseas assignments besides strengthening the domestic structure.

Their inputs will also be taken while appointing the new coach to replace Duncan Fletcher, whose tenure has ended.

      May be Rahul will be appointed a special manager to koli by Shastri!!! It won't be a honor to a self-respecting cricketer.

        this is sheer politics leaving out Dravid. Ganguli is in because of the new BCCI head from calcutta. This is surely bjp move
