The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has asked to BCCI to announce the new Indian men’s cricket head coach today. The boards of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) had delayed the announcement after taking interview of five candidates on Monday. But, COA doesn’t want any delay, therefore, directed the BCCI.
The CAC member Ganguly said on Monday, “We want to speak to Virat Kohli, once he is back from America, all three of us, the respective people concerned, we will explain to him that the coaches want to function in a certain way and make sure everybody is on the same page once we make the announcement. Once, we make the announcement, it has to be till the World Cup.”
The CoA member said to The Indian Express that “We were actually very generously wanting to build up consensus and that’s why we were waiting for them (BCCI members) to hold the SGM.”
“We held back (the status report) for that only. But now they are totally disruptive. We actually spent the last four-five months trying to build consensus, facing criticism in the process.”
“See, we can’t enforce the new constitution on the BCCI or state associations. The court has to do it. The status report has asked for directions from the court, making it very clear that the CoA has tried everything possible but they (BCCI members) are not coming around, thereby making us recommend the imposition of the new constitution. Three-four elements in the entire BCCI are disrupting the process.”
