Shastri named India's coach

Shastri named India's coach

He departed the national team set-up along with Shastri previous year when former India leg-spinner Anil Kumble was appointed as the head coach.

Robin, who was sacked as fielding coach following India's poor performance in the 2009 T20 World Cup and Champions Trophy, said he was not in a position to comment on the Kohli-Kumble saga.

"Let me put it like this". I don't like to work with people who I don't know. "A head coach should have a comfort level".

When interviewed by TOI on the ongoing speculation regarding him being signed by BCCI as the bowling coach, the 54-year-old said, "Not yet".

Emphasizing that this is sort of an arrangement isn't limited to just cricket, Singh said, "You can ask anyone around - whether it's cricket or a company". "If I were the head coach, I would want people whom I'm comfortable working with. It's as simple as that". However, both appointments, especially that of Zaheer, ran into trouble when the COA took offence over what it interpreted as the CAC going beyond its brief and appointing the support staff too.

Arun was India's bowling coach from 2014 to 2016 and formed a strong partnership with Shastri when he was the team director. "A recommendation has been made and the CoA has to act on the recommendation which will be done only after consultation with the head coach".


Jason Gillespie has revealed he came close to putting his name forward to be India's head coach.

The COA, though, was not averse to use Dravid and Zaheer's inputs in some form or the other, and according to a Mumbai Mirrorreport, a member of the Supreme Court-appointed panel disclosed that the services of Zaheer and Dravid would be utilised for overseas tours, though Shastri will take a call on that. And now, the appointment of the support staff is getting its share of undue controversy.

"Three appointments which are core to the coaching team have been decided".

The various stakeholders involved look do not look to be communicating effectively with each other, as was obvious when the CAC wrote a letter to the CoA expressing its disappointment at the manner in which it was being targetted by the media only for what it believed was the job assigned to it.

The recent development has added more confusion to what is already being seen as a shoddy selection process of support staff by the BCCI.
