BCCI constitutes CAC
BCCI has constituted the Cricket Advisory Committee for selection of chief coach and coaching staff. In this, Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaikwad and Shanta Rangaswamy have been appointed. It is believed that Shastri will once again apply. They will get the support of captain Virat Kohli.
Ganguly said- No big names in applicants
Ganguly said – I see the applicants’ names. There was no big name seen in them. I had heard that Mahela Jayawardene might have applied for the application. But finally they did not apply. This time there are no big names, who have applied for the post of coach.
I am away from the system too – Ganguly
Ganguly said – I do not know what the panel will decide. They are looking at all aspects. We would like to see how long time the coach is given. A lot of names have not filed the application anyway. I also have one of my thoughts about this. But I do not think it’s the right time to talk about it. I am also away from this system, which is going to select the coach.
