IANS logoIANS 14-07-2017

As per the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) media release on Thursday, both Zaheer and former national team skipper Rahul Dravid were appointed "on overseas tour-to-tour basis, as per the requirement of the team".

But Ganguly here said that their recommendation for the World Cup winning left-arm pacer to be appointed as India's bowling consultant was for 150 days a year, which is much more than the total number of days India usually spend on tours abroad.

"(We recommended) 150 days a year," Ganguly told reporters here.

India played in the Caribbean from June 23 till July 9 and will be travelling to Sri Lanka for three Tests, five ODIs and one T20 from July 26-September 6.

The national squad is scheduled to tour South Africa later this year between November and January.
