Sourashish appointed coach for East Zone
29th August 2022
Sourasish Lahiri has been appointed as East Zone coach for Duleep Trophy which starts from 8 September.
He said "I have played for East Zone for so many years and when you get the opportunity to coach that side it is a different feeling. It feels good when you get such recognition and appreciation in my short span of coaching career and I want to thank CAB and all of them who felt that I am capable for this role."
He further added "Our team is a well balanced side and I want to thank BCCI as this format is back again and I am glad to be a part of it."
Asked about the challenges, he said " I am aware of the 7 bengal players and I have good relationship with all other players and as we all have short time it is the same for other teams as well. We will practice together and have our plan."
He also said, "All players are talented and they have done well for their respective state teams. Manoj, who has been a legend in Indian cricket, is the team's captain. It is a happy coincidence that he is the captain and I am the coach. Anustup is a fantastic player, Shahbaz, Virat Singh, Nadeem, Riyan Parag, Mura Singh, Akashdeep and all our Bengal players are superb. I feel confident with such a talented bunch."
