Former India captain Sourav Ganguly yesterday said that he was "desperate" to become the national coach, but ended up being an administrator. "You should do what you can and not thinking about the outcome. "You never know where life goes, you never know where life will take you. I went to Australia in 1999, I wasn't even the vice-captain. Sachin (Tendulkar) was captain and in three months I became the captain of India," he said.

"When I got into administration, I was desperate to be the coach of the national side. Jagmohan Dalmiya said, 'Why you don't you try for six months.' He passed away and no one was around, so I became CAB president. People take 20 years to become president. You have to live for the day," Ganguly said while speaking at the India Today Conclave.
