Victory For Shastri As Bharat Arun Becomes Bowling Coach

Victory For Shastri As Bharat Arun Becomes Bowling Coach

Whether Arun gets the India job, and in what capacities Zaheer and Dravid's services will be utilised will be decided on Tuesday by a four-member BCCI panel comprising acting president CK Khanna, CEO Rahul Johri and acting secretary Amitabh Chadhuary and COA member Diana Edulji. The former all-rounder was eventually named the head coach for a period of two years running till the end of the ICC World Cup 2019. It's really a comfort level that you need to have. "All you can do as a coach is present your case on how you think you can make a difference and help the team perform better", he said. "Thus, this arrangement", he said.

"Other days where I wasn't so sure. It's as simple as that".

The CAC, comprising former India captains Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar along with former batsman V.V.S. Laxman, had suggested Zaheer Khan as bowling consultant and Rahul Dravid as overseas batting consultant for the India team. 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.

Shastri has maintained that Arun's rich experience in ironing out flaws of the bowlers and his willingness to work in a full-time role will prove vital to Virat Kohlii's team.

Gillespie said that he was not able to decide this time whether to apply for the post or not. And now, the appointment of the support staff is getting its share of undue controversy.

The various stakeholders involved look do not look to be communicating effectively with each other, as was obvious when the CAC wrote a letter to the CoA expressing its disappointment at the manner in which it was being targetted by the media only for what it believed was the job assigned to it. Notably, the CoA had questioned the BCCI over "Conflict of Interest" issue after it found that many of national team's support staff were still contracted to T20 leagues.

Why were Dravid and Khan appointed if Shastri wasn't comfortable with them if at all the "process" of taking the coach into confidence isn't as farcical as the entire coach-selection saga has appeared to be?
