BCCI’s new advisory committee to appoint Team India new coach

The newly appointed BCCI constitution has been handed over the responsibility of appointing the selection committee and the head coach for Team India.

Recently a meeting was conducted by the Committee of Administration where the COA directed the General Manager Saba Karim to recommend names that can be thought upon to form the new CAC.

The CAC which is a high profile committee now remains disbanded as both Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar have submitted their resignation to BCCI.

The Ethics Minister later communicated that this has not happened because of the conflict of interest guidelines between Ganguly and other esteemed members of the CAC.

The BCCI will invite fresh applicants to play an active role as the support staff of Indian Cricket team including the head coach.

Ravi Shastri, who is the existing coach of the Indian cricket team, will have to reapply once his contract expires after returning from West Indies tour which is scheduled for next month.

It is important to be noted that the support staff comprising of bowling coach Sanjay Bangar, fielding coach R Sridhar and main coach Shastri were given forty-five days extension following the World Cup.

The support staff will, therefore, remain the same for the West Indies tour starting from August 3 to September 3.
After the exit of India in World Cup semi-final match, Patrick Farhart the physiotherapist of team India and Shankar Basu the fitness coach resigned from their post.

Now the team is set to have a new trainer and physio. Apart from this, all the existing support staff can reapply once their contract expires for the respective positions too.

After West Indies tour, India has a home season which starts with a series with South Africa from September 15.
