CAC meet today to pick a coach.Ravi Shastri seems to be the favorite
As per the prior controversy of Anil Kumble- Virat Kohli riot, CAC was asked to have several meeting to discuss over the next head coach and appoint him within the instructed time period.
As per the BCCI instructions, Indian team head coach will be picked today by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and VVS Laxman, who will meet in Mumbai for the interview process for the applicants.
The Indian team has been playing without a head coach since the departure of veteran Anil Kumble at the end of the Champions Trophy last month.
The official list has not been announced by the BCCI but sources say that Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput and D Ganesh featured in the original list followed by Ravi Shastri, Lance Klusener, Phil Simmons and Rakesh Sharma — the last four having entered the fray after the cricket board extended the deadline.
While the Committee of Administrators-COA hasn't been supportive of an extended deadline for the post of the head coach, they had asked BCCI CEO Rahul Johri about the reason behind the extension of the deadline.
John explained that by extending the deadline the BCCI wanted to provide an opportunity for some potential candidates who would have missed the opportunity if it was not for an extension.
