Former Indian captain and a member of Cricket Advisory Committee(CAC) Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday finally spoke about what he thinks about Ravi Shastri being appointed as the head coach of the Indian cricket team. He revealed that Ravi Shastri was Kohli’s choice and wished both of them good luck for the series against Australia.

Not only Kohli, everyone wanted Ravi Shastri to hold the post after Kumble’s controversial resignation after the ICC Champions Trophy in June. Earlier this month, CAC comprising of Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, and Sourav Ganguly took interviews for the high profile job and in the end, it was decided that Ravi Shastri should be appointed as the head coach.

Ganguly on Shastri’s appointment said, “That’s what Virat Kohli wanted. He’d be happy to have Ravi (Shastri) with him. Wish them all the best. They have two years ahead of them before the World Cup and hope they have a good one.”

Kohli, who lost his form completely against the Test series against Australia earlier this year was also backed by Ganguly who said that it was only a matter of time. “It’s only a matter of time. He’s (Virat Kohli) a fantastic player and wish him all the best,” he said.

When asked about the team strategy and whether the team should include a third spinner, Ganguly said, “It will be an interesting to see who’s the second spinner. I won’t be surprised if Ashwin and Kuldeep (Yadav) are the two spinners. Three spinners are possible. Hardik Pandya can play along with Umesh (Yadav) or (Mohammed) Shami. Ashwin, Jadeja and Hardik can all bat. It gives an opportunity to play three spinners. if Virat can win the toss and bat, then three spinners will come into play.”

He also believes that India has the potential to win the series 3-0. “It won’t be that difficult for India to win the series. India is firm favourites. India has a big possibility to win 3-0,” he said.
