During Ravi Shastri’s tenure with the team as director had directed India to the semi-finals of the 2015 ICC World Cup and the 2016 ICC WT20. In a press conference, Amitabh Choudhary (BCCI joint secretary) said that the Committee of Administrators is yet to confirm Shastri’s name to the board. As per sources in the BCCI, Shastri had agreed to apply for the post after getting assurance from the BCCI about getting the post.
In an interview, the Cricket Advisory Committee including Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman had made it clear that as soon as India captain Virat Kohli’s return from America, the name of Team India Head Coach will be announced. But the SC-appointed Committee of Administrators stood ground and guaranteed that the on Tuesday the announcement will be made.
A BCCI official said that “while the first decision was set to be taken after Kohli returns from America next week, things took a turn late on Monday night after discussions between the COA and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri”.
The official said, “Till around 9:30 in the evening, it was decided that the coach’s call would be made after the CAC meets with Kohli once he is back from America. But then things started rolling and the COA made it clear to the CAC that the announcement should be made today itself. Johri and BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary were briefed of the same.”
However, it is believed that the committee did not want to manipulate Kohli’s decision it is he who has to interact with the coach 24×7.
A BCCI official explained, “The CAC was indeed impressed by Ravi Shastri’s presentation and it was then decided that Kohli should be brought into the scene and the skipper should make the call because at the end of the day, it is the captain who will have to spend time with the coach and the equation cannot be compromised,”
After Anil Kumble resigned from the post after losing the ICC Champions Trophy and decided not to re-apply, everyone was thinking who will be the next head coach of team India. Kumble’s decision was influenced severely by his fading relationship with team India captain Virat Kohli.
