Khanna confirmed the same and said: "Received communication that a 4-member committee has been formed with Rahul Johri as convener".

Edulji and BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary are the other members of the committee which will meet on July 19.

It may be recalled that earlier Dravid was chosen as the consultant for batting skills, whereas Khan was chosen for bowling skills.

At the outset we would like to express our appreciation for the CoA's and BCCI's support and encouragement to the CAC in the process of identifying the next head coach of the Indian cricket team.

On July 10, the CAC had picked up Ravi Shastri as head coach and appointed Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid as overseas bowling and batting coach.

As per the minutes of the meeting, the "appointments of other consultants will be decided by the committee in consultation with the head coach". Towards the conclusion of their letter, they have requested BCCI and CoA to clear the air in the media and "set the record straight" concerning the appointment of the two consultants and the role of CAC in doing so.


Amidst the ego tussle between the Cricket Advisory Committee - comprising Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman - and the newly-appointed Team India head coach Ravi Shastri over the choice of the support staff, it has emerged that Zaheer Khan is likely to get a 150-day contract as the team's bowling consultant. Also, Shastri has made it clear that he is okay with Zaheer planning the course of action for the bowlers in the team and someone like a Bharat Arun implementing them on a daily basis.

"If the committee fails to decide on Tuesday, it will once again meet on Saturday (July 22) to discuss the matter. The support staff has been decided in consultation with the head coach", Rai told reporters after the meeting.

"We also bring to your notice the email you had circulated to us saying that we had absolutely free hand in picking the coach of the Indian cricket team. 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.

The letter also said that CAC felts that Shastri would function better with Zaheer and Dravid in his team and also mentioned that he had no problem and readily agreed to this idea.

India will play the first Test against Sri Lanka on July 26. "And we have reacted to each one of those things". Similarly, an advertisement for managers of A team and U-19 team will also be released.
