Check this out at Cricinfo. The ‘pearls’ from the report are summarised below
- This is the second time the coach committee meeting had to be deferred after they failed to convene in Bangalore on September 28 when they were originally schedule to discuss the applications.
- “Sunil [Gavaskar] is not available on that day and we had to postpone the meeting until further notice,” said Niranjan Shah, secretary of the Indian board.
- He was also confident that the team would have a coach for the tour to Australia in December. “We should be meeting in the next two weeks and since it’s an important tour there could be a name picked up.”
- The BCCI is yet to receive any applications that it considers “suitable”. “We’ve received about 20 applications but the committee is not completely happy.” Shah said it was possible the board would wait for more applications.
My only personal take on the above is that India will not get its coach to Australia if we do well against Pakistan!
