Kapil Dev-led panel could pick the coach

Kapil Dev.  

The Kapil Dev-led ad-hoc committee coould pick the next National team coach but a final decision on the panel formation would be taken only after the next Supreme Court hearing. The application deadline for all the coaching roles is July 30.

The Committee of Administrators (CoA) had asked the court for directions on the continuation of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.

However, if there is no directive from the court on the CAC, the CoA might be left with no other alternative but task the Kapil Dev-led committee with picking the coach.

The ad-hoc body comprising former India captain Kapil, Aunshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy had appointed W.V. Raman as the Indian women’s team coach in December.

On Tuesday, the BCCI has invited applications for the men’s team support staff, including head coach who will need to be less than 60 years of age with a minimum international experience of two years.

The current support staff, comprising incumbent head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R. Sridhar, were given a 45-day extension following the World Cup, covering the West Indies tour from August 3 to September 3.

All of them will get an automatic entry in the recruitment process.
