Ganguly is set to have a one-on-one with Shastri during the Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens next month.
“The president and the secretary wanted to meet the captain and the vice captain. There was some discussions on roadmap. The president gave his inputs which were refreshing,” a BCCI official was quoted as saying by PTI.
It is understood that veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s future in international cricket was discussed during the meeting, though no confirmation on that has been forthcoming.
