Even as the Cricket Board is looking to finalise Team India coach after the departure of Duncan Fletcher, former captain Sunil Gavaskar today said that the team required a mentor rather than a coach. “You need somebody like a mentor. At the international level you need something like that. You need the coach at the junior level when you are getting up and looking for a career (in cricket). That is to correct the technical faults and stuff like that,” said Gavaskar here. “At the highest level you need someone who puts his arm around you and tells you this is the way to do this,” added the former India opener after launching the book ‘As Luck Would Have It’, written by another former Test opener, Madhav Apte, at a well-attended function. Speaking about the book, Gavaskar recalled how ‘luck’ played a big part since early on in his life.
