Following Duncan Fletcher's departure, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will announce its new coach and revamped support staff prior to the team departing for the tour of Bangladesh on June 7.

"I think he (Ganguly) would do a great job because he's got a great wealth of knowledge behind him with so many games of Test match cricket, one-day cricket and Twenty20 cricket," Lee was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia.

Lee backed the former left-handed batsman for the coveted role. "He's been there and done it all. Will that make him a good coach? I don't know. If he's hungry for it, with his wealth of knowledge he could definitely pass it on. Having the right balance as a coach is the most important thing," he said.
