A Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) led by World Cup-winning former captain Kapil Dev today entrusted with the responsibility of selecting India’s new coach.
The interviews for the coaches are expected to be conducted in the middle of next month. The decision was taken by the Committee of Administrators (COA) running Indian Cricket after a meeting in New Delhi.
Apart from Kapil, the panel, which picked the women’s coach in December last year, comprises former women’s captain Shantha Rangaswamy and former men’s coach Anshuman Gaekwad.
India’s incumbent coach Ravi Shastri has been handed an extension till the end of the tour of West Indies from 3rd of next month to 3rd September.
The COA is, however, still awaiting Supreme Court directions on the conflict of interest case involving the original CAC members Sourav Ganguly and V.V.S. Laxman.
The two have been asked to choose one out of the multiple cricketing roles they are performing at the moment, including commentary.
