BCCI takes U-turn over appointments
15 July, 2017, 19:31
The Committee of Administrators (CoA) had put the contract drafts for the three new appointees - Shastri, Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan - on hold and will discuss the contracts at a meeting here on Saturday. The fresh controversy started when reports emerged yesterday that Shastri was unhappy with the appointment of Zaheer as bowling coach as he wanted to bring his trusted man Bharat Arun for the job.
The drama over the appointment of Indian coaching support staff is not yet over.
The meeting, which comes after the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) appointed Zaheer Khan as bowling coach and Rahul Dravid as overseas batting coach, has been scheduled for July 18. "They have not been appointed", Rai told reporters here. "A recommendation has been made and the CoA has to act on the recommendation, that recommendation will be acted upon in consultation with the head coach", he added. A day after his appointment, Shastri welcomed the move of appointing experienced players like Dravid and Zaheer in such roles but explained in no uncertain terms that he should get a call on who will be part of his full-time support staff.
Rai said, "Three appointments which are core to the coaching team have been decided".
The new committee will reach out to CoA with its recommendations on 22 July.
The meeting was attended by CoA members Vinod Rai, Diana Edulji and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.
It now needs to be seen if Dravid and Zaheer at all will travel with the team for the India tour of Sri Lanka, on July 19. "After taking the decision on his selection, the CAC consulted him and decided on having Batting and Bowling consultants on overseas tour-to-tour basis, as per the requirement of the team", the BCCI had said in a release.
Although Zaheer and Dravid weren't mentioned in the latest press release, the BCCI didn't reverse its earlier announcement either, implying that assignments of the two former greats would be overseas tour-specific. We have set up a committee and they will speak to them (CAC), communicate with them after talking to Shastri. Those in the know say the uncertainty over the bowling coach/consultant is a carry-over effect of last year's coach selection episode where Ganguly is said to have played a big role in Kumble replacing Shastri.
