BCCI to name head coach after discussion with Kohli

BCCI to name head coach after discussion with Kohli”

The Indian cricket team's head coach will be finalized soon.

"According to reports, the BCCI had received 10 applications for the post of India's head coach €" Shastri, Sehwag, Moody, Richard Pybus, Dodda Ganesh, Lalchand Rajput, Lance Klusener, Rakesh Sharma (Oman national team coach), Phil Simmons and Upendranath Brahmachari (an engineer sans any cricketing background). But then things started rolling and the COA made it clear to the CAC that the announcement should be made today itself.

The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) will certainly speak to Virat Kohli before announcing the new chief coach but they will only explain the rationale behind their decision and not seek his opinion on the matter.

"We feel there is no hurry at the moment", former India captain Ganguly told reporters. Shastri's term - and that of his three assistant coaches, Sanjay Bangar Bharat Arun and R Sridhar - was extended until the end of the 2015 World Cup by the BCCI working committee, and then again until the end of the World Twenty20 in March-April previous year.

Here is a look at three candidates, Shastri, Sehwag and Moody - who is best suited for the job.

Ravi Shastri has pipped Virender Sehwag to become Indian cricket team's new head coach. Former India captain Ravi Shastri was named for the post in place for Anil Kumble.

However, the committee confirmed that Kohli would not have a say in who the coach would be as they just wanted to have a discussion with the captain regarding the interview process and the decision which they made.

Kohli made no recommendation for who should fill the coaching role, Ganguly added, which would run until the World Cup in 2019.

A veteran of 80 Tests and 150 One-Day Internationals (ODI), the 55-year-old Shastri had earlier served as the Team Director for India's tour of England in 2014 to the 2016 World T20, where India lost to the eventual champions West Indies.
