The Committee of Administrators (CoA) decided on Monday that the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) may pick candidates for the next head coach for India’s cricket team. The CAC is a three-member committee. Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy are the CAC members at present.
The CAC is currently not dealing with any conflict. This means that they are free to choose the next Team India head coach.
There are many reports about who might be the next head coach. The CAC mentioned that they are not likely to hire a foreign coach.
“An Indian would have always been the priority. After all, the team has done well under an Indian head coach, so why look for a change?” said a CAC member.
There are still foreigners who are interested in becoming India’s head coach.
Tom Moody was reported to be keen on coaching Team India. He lost to Anil Kumble years ago but is willing to try his luck again. The BCCI mentioned criteria with Moody seems to fit.
Even though Moody is Australian, he was associated with the Indian Premier League for more than five years.
Mike Hesson is another foreigner that showed interest. He worked very well with Bredon McCullum. New Zealand improved a lot under his coaching. He is now the head coach of Kings XI Punjab. He has an idea of what cricket is like in an Indian context.
Mahela Jayawardene was reported as another candidate. In the past, captain Virat Kohli and Jayawardene complimented each other very well. He is known to be the best captain of all time for Team Sri Lanka.
Jayawardene is known to work well with different personalities. This is something some say Team India needs. He can help with team relations if he becomes coach. He is known to be crafty and sharp in strategy.
Some senior officials in the BCCI reported that Ravi Shastri should keep his place as head coach. The possibility is very likely. The team had been doing very well under his coaching. Most of the other candidates for head coach are foreigners.
Shastri believes he is likely to keep his job. There are no other high-profile candidates that can take his place. One CAC member thinks that it is “almost certain” Shastri will remain head coach.
Shastri was a former all-rounder. He was appointed as head coach for India in 2017. India won against Australia in their maiden Test series. They reached World Cup semi-finals. Their ODI ranking is second place.
The chance of a split decision in the CAC is not likely to happen.
There is no announced date received yet for the final decision. CoA chief Vinod Rai mentioned that the final list of candidates will be given mid-August. The announcement for the head coach will follow shortly after.
Betwala Marketing Executive Vishkar Chaudhary expresses excitement over the candidates. “The next head coach is an important event for a cricket team. We will be following Team India throughout this process,” stated Chaudhary.
