BCCI says CAC deliberating on name of coach; formal announcement soon

CoA thanks CAC for its services accepts coach recommendation in totality

"We will speak to him after he returns from South America", according to a report by scroll.

Choudhary said the members of the CAC were in discussion about the appointment of the next coach and that an announcement was imminent.

The COA comprises Vinod Rai as chairman, and Vikram Limaye and Diana Edulji as the other members. In case he has any difference of opinion with the new coach, the skipper will be forced to remind himself that he was also involved in the selection process. Ganguly made it clear that whoever was chosen would be in place till the 2019 World Cup and tellingly said, "We shouldn't be seen again six months down the line doing something different".

Commenting on the process of Coach Selection, Chaudhary said that CAC has the full freedom to narrow down on the coach's name.

Ganguly also explained how former West Indies cricketer Phil Simmons could not be interviewed for the high-profile role.

By the looks of it, it will be a toss up between Virender Sehwag and Ravi Shastri as Tom Moody also plays dark horse.

Sehwag's interview went on for two hours.


"What we have decided is we will hold on for the time being for the announcement of the coach".

"Moments later the former Indian opener replied, "dear Anurag thank u so much. need u back in indian cricket".

Incidentally, Shastri not being present physically during his interview with the CAC previous year had been considered disrespectful by one of its members, with his seriousness for the coach's role being questioned. "The CAC goes out of the picture once the coach is selected".

"We have a Sri Lanka tour coming in a week's time and the board will continue with the same set (of people) for the time being". He (Rai) has got the right (to ask us).

Reiterating the policy of the BCCI, Ganguly stated that any appointment will be made till the World Cup.

"So the other stakeholders are made to understand that the style is typical of a person and therefore we should become accommodative of that". It's a very very hard job and I give full marks to them.
