Tendulkar, Ganguly and Laxman were on Monday inducted into the advisory committee to guide the Board and the national team on various “progressive steps” needed for future challenges.

“Areas of immediate focus will be to provide guidance to our national team as we set out to enhance our performance on overseas engagements, provide direction to improve our talent pathway and take steps to strengthen domestic cricket to better prepare our players to handle the rigours of International Cricket,” the BCCI stated.
