Former India batsman Sandeep Patil, who was appointed director of cricket operations of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) on Wednesday, said he was looking forward to the challenge.

“Being a director of an academy is very different from a national coach’s job. It is a challenging task and I have goose bumps in my stomach,” Patil, a former national coach, said.

Patil will take over from Dav Whatmore, who took over as coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders.

“Dave is an old friend and I am sure he will help me out and will give me some insight into the role. Ravi's presence will make the task easy for me," Patil added.
