India head coach appointment put on hold

India head coach appointment put on hold”

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.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, who's part of the CAC, said at a press conference: "We will hold on for a few days on the announcement of India's next coach".

As of now, Lalchand Rajput, Richard Pybus, Tom Moody, Virender Sehwag and Ravi Shastri have all been interviewed. "We are not in a hurry to announce India coach", he said. "Sri Lanka tour is in a week's time, the board headed by [secretary] Amitabh Choudhary and [CEO] Rahul Johri will probably continue with the same set for the time being". "With the Lodha Committee reforms clearing suggesting that the players should be empowered to run the game, Monday's lack of clarity on the coach issue was a classic case on how the board officials are still best equipped to handle administrative issues", a senior functionary told ToI. Sri Lanka is a long tour. "I don't know what is the hurry when there is time", Ganguly was quoted as saying by India Today.

"From what we have heard from the coaches, it is not different from previous year". At the same time, you have to give credit to Virat that he has stayed out of the coach selection process. "Everybody should be in synchronisation", Ganguly said in a matter-of-fact manner. He has no input, he has not sent any names, but we feel as the Advisory Committee that he is the captain, which is the most important thing in cricket.

Many saw Kumble's appointment as the way forward for Indian cricket, given the former India leg-spinner's work ethics and fighting spirit. Kumble, who was the CAC's unanimous choice, did not turn out to be the right one.

"From what we have heard from the coaches, it is not different from previous year".
