The fate of Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan, along with Arun will be decided on Tuesday, by a four-member BCCI panel comprising Committee of Administrators (CoA) memeber Diana Edulji, acting president CK Khanna, CEO Rahul Johri and acting secretary Amitabh Chadhuary.

Shastri was appointed coach of Team India after he pipped top contenders like Virender Sehwag and Tom Moody for the post. It's really a comfort level that you need to have. "Anybody who thinks he can contribute his best for Indian cricket can and should apply". "Thus, this arrangement", the BCCI official said. At the end of the day, if I'm coach, I would want people who I'm comfortable with.

In case you didn't know.


Jason Gillespie, former Australian cricketer, has revealed he thought long and hard about applying for Indian cricket team's coaching job, which was eventually assigned to Ravi Shastri.

The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and VVS Laxman carried out the selection process and made the final call. 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. The BCCI also named Zaheer Khan as the bowling consultant of the team and Rahul Dravid as the overseas batting consultant.

On being asked whether the head coach and the consultants were selected in a proper manner, Singh declined to make a comment. The head coach position was vacant after Anil Kumble stepped down saying his relationship with captain Virat Kohli had become "untenable".

Other than the coach and players' disputes, there are some other issues that are tackled now. And now, the appointment of the support staff is getting its share of undue controversy.

"What went in Shastri's favour was also the fact that he understood the importance of the work ethic put in place by the existing support staff members who have worked with the team for close to three years", the source added. In selected as the bowling coach of the Indian cricket team, he will have to relinquish his positions both in the TNPL and IPL, as the new BCCI rules have been created to crack down on conflicts of interest.
