India’s new coach will lead South Africa tour – Thakur
India will play against Proteas’ under the supervision of new coach, says BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur. The tour is going to start at the end of the September. The Proteas will play four Tests, five ODIs and three T20Is during their 72-day long tour of India, and it seems that the BCCI has given a dead line to the committee (consists of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman) to suggest a name for the chief coach’s role before the South Africa tour begins.
Ravi Shastri will be with the team up to Sri Lanka tour
Ravi Shastri will guide the team India up to Sri Lanka tour and BCCI will take a decision on the coaching staff before the start of South Africa series. If the committee suggests a name, immediately the board will follow their suggestion.
“If you want to hire someone for next 2-3 years, you have to look into details about who could be best in the interest of Indian cricket. We don’t want to take any decision in haste. After this series against Sri Lanka we still have a couple of months to go to take the final call on that,” said Thakur in another interview with ESPNCricinfo.
We will find the best and possible option on those two teams
Thakur also spoke on the suspension of Indian Premier League clubs Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals — and whether the BCCI has found a solution to the Lodha Committee verdict.
“We are working on the issue and try to consider the best possible option among all for the IPL. At present we can’t reveal about this completely. As far as BCCI is concerned, there is no apprehension about auctioning two new teams” he told to Cricbuzz
Thakur sounded a warning to the Pakistan Cricket Board too, saying that attacks on India time and again reduces the possibility of a resumption of cricketing ties between the two countries.
