Sunil Gavaskar named consultant to Indian team

Last updated on: October 05, 2004 16:54 IST

The Board of Control for Cricket in India named former Test captain Sunil Gavaskar as consultant to the Indian team for the India-Australia Test series, starting on Wednesday in Bangalore.

The Board invited Gavaskar to take up the job after discussing it with the team management, BCCI secretary S K Nair said in a statement.

"There will be no overlapping of responsibilities with that of coach John Wright, and yet the Indian team would be able to utilise the rich experience and technical expertise of the 'Little Master'," Nair said.

Gavaskar will join the team on Tuesday, the statement added.
