NEW DELHI: After the three-member Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Sourav GangulySachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman, put the appointment of next India coach on hold despite completion of the interview process, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has asked BCCI to not delay the announcement further and name the coach today (11th July).

In a press conference on Monday, Ganguly had stated that the CAC will have a detailed chat with Kohli once he is back from the West Indies as he needs to understand how coaches operate. However, according media reports, CoA has told BCCI to merely let Kohli know about the candidates interviewed and the interview process and name the coach promptly.

The CAC interviewed five candidates for the post of head coach and at the end of it said that they needed more time to come to a final decision. Tendulkar joined in through video conference.

The fresh delay in the appointment of a coach comes 47 days after the BCCI invited applications for the role. “What we have decided is that we will hold on for the time being (on) the announcement of the coach. We need to talk to a few more players, especially the captain, and then make an announcement because we feel that there is no hurry at the moment,” Ganguly said, adding that the new coach would be given a contract till the 2019 World Cup.

Ganguly made it clear that they are looking at the bigger picture for the next two years and will take a decision in the best interest of Indian cricket.
