Mumbai: A three-member Cricket Advisory Committee led by 1983 World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev will pick Team India’s next head coach, the Committee of Administrators said on Friday.
The panel includes former women’s cricket team captain Shantha Rangaswamy and former men’s coach Anshuman Gaekwad. The interviews of the candidates are expected to take place mid-August.
The decision was taken by the Committee of Administrators (CoA) running Indian cricket after a meeting here.
“These three will pick the men’s coach. It is not an ad-hoc body. But this all is subject to conflict of interest. The interviews of the candidates are expected to take place in mid-August,” CoA chief Vinod Rai said after the meeting.
Meanwhile, current coach Ravi Shastri has been handed an extension till the end of the tour of West Indies from August 3 to September 3. Shastri will have to reapply to be in contention for the position.
It has been also reported that CoA is still awaiting Supreme Court directions on the conflict of interest case involving the original CAC members Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
The two have been asked to choose one out of the multiple cricketing roles they are performing at the moment, including commentary.
