General News BCCI to appoint new coach before Sri Lanka tour
#1
Advertisement

Rajiv Shukla, the Indian Premier League chairman, has confirmed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is going to appoint India's next coach ahead of the Sri Lanka tour. After Anil Kumble stepped down as India's head coach, the board has also decided to call for more applications for the position.

"The BCCI has decided to search for the coach and before the Sri Lankan tour, we will find the best coach," Shukla said on Wednesday (June 21). "When the coach is selected, captain has not got any role in that. The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) has been constituted and they will be recommending the names. After that, BCCI will decide who should be the coach."

So far Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Dodda Ganesh and Lalchand Rajput have applied for the job. Kumble was a direct entry but the former India captain chose to walk away after Virat Kohli had reservations about his coaching style.

"BCCI has tried its best to resolve the issue. The acting secretary, CEO had a discussion with Kumble and Kohli. They consulted the chairman of the COA also. They tried to resolve the whole issue, but ultimately no outcome could be found out. Finally, Kumble decided to move on and he has decided not to continue with the West Indies tour," Shukla said. "Earlier, the decision was taken that Kumble will continue till the Sri Lanka tour. But he has decided to not go on with the West Indies tour. BCCI wishes him all the best for his future career."

The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), comprising of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, will now select India's next coach. India will tour Sri Lanka for three Tests, five One-Day Internationals and one Twenty20 International.
