News in Brief: 24 April 2007

BCCI has announced a two-year term for the next coach and manager. Aparently a seven member “special committee” has been set up to advice on the coach-manager selection. The names doing the rounds for the coaching job includes Tom Moody, Dav Whatmore, John Buchanan, John Wright and Viv Richards. If Gavaskar has his way, the Aussies are out of contention. Hopefully common sense will prevail or is it asking too much of the BCCI?

According to Richard Hadlee the Sabina Park pitch may suit the Kiwis. What about Malinga? He may like to return the favour too.

Amay Khurasiya, who played 12 ODIs for India matches between 1999 and 2001, announced his retirement from first class cricket. He is keen on taking up coaching. Sure thing Amay. Coaching is certainly the flavour of the month.

The body of murdered Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer has been released by the coroner and will soon be returned to his family in South Africa.

Sachin Tendulkar turns 34. How long will he continue to play is anybody’s guess.

    For one moment, I thought that the headline was TENDULKAR SCORES 34!

  2. Sampath, I agree with you. If he does score 34 that will be a headline. Pro-Tendulkar scribes are likely to write “Tendulkar on road to recapturing glory” and those against “Tendulkar fails to convert start again”
