New Delhi:

Indian Premier League franchisee Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday said the new captain and coach for the team still remains undecided.

After the conclusion of the meeting at team owner Shah Rukh Khan's residence, the management said the decision will be taken by the end of August and emphasised on Sourav Ganguly's role as a mentor, who will be a part of all decision-making.

Earlier, SRK dismissed reports that Ganguly has been re-appointed skipper for next season, saying that captaincy of the side would be decided in a series of meetings from August 4 to 15.

"We will be meeting on August 4 and that's when all decisions on coach, captaincy and hopefully a formula for winning at least some of the matches next year would be worked out," Shah Rukh told a press conference.

KKR, which finished bottom of the table this season, sacked coach John Buchanan after the debacle and former India coach John Wright is tipped to fill in the post vacated by the Australian.

The team's captaincy is also a subject of massive speculation and there are reports that Ganguly, who was replaced by New Zealand Brendon McCullum this season, is all set to return at the helm for IPL -III scheduled next April.
