Ganguly refuses to comment on Arun appointment

'Ravi Shastris, Anil Kumbles will come and go': Chief coach sends out clear message as second stint begins

After endless controversies, former India cricketer, Ravi Shastri, was chosen as India's head coach till 2019 World Cup. India took 77 out of 80 wickets. That happens with good support staff. Shastri, who was appointed India coach after much confusion, said that coaches will come and go but what is important is the team. "These Ravi Shastris and Anil Kumbles will come and go, but the fabric of Indian cricket will remain and the credit should go to everyone who has participated in this Indian team over the last three years". Along with Shastri, Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus and Lalchand Rajput were in the fray and appeared in the interview process. Ravi Shastri has finally got what he wanted.

According to Times of India, Ganguly told reporters "Enough has been said about the matter". We have created a culture that we can win a Test of a series in any condition.

"If you look at the average age of that team a couple of years back".

Arun will be remembered for slipping and falling while running in to bowl his first ball in Test cricket while taking the lay-up. "I believe in that", Kohli said when asked if there will be additional pressure after getting the coaching staff of his choice. "I don't come with any baggage", Shastri said. Whatever happened in the past should stay there.

Shastri, however, defended the appointment of Bharat Arun as bowling coach and said: "If Bharat Arun's name was someone else, you would have put it on top". The board also retained fielding coach R Sridhar along with physiotherapist Patrick Farhat and strength and fitness coach Shankar Basu. Sanjay Bangar was named the team's assistant coach.

"When you play the game you want your mind clear". The credit should go to the team. All stakeholders-captain, senior players, committee of legends, board members, Supreme Court observers and, of course, all candidates-should be locked in a large house with cameras rolling day and night, recording all the relevant (i.e. juicy) bits that go into picking the big boss. I don't think the break is a problem. "He has spoken personally with the other two gentlemen (Dravid and Zaheer) and they will be consultants", he said. It also mentions that on the CoA taking charge, the existing office bearers shall also function subject to the supervision and control of the CoA.

However, now it seems to have come even down, with Zaheer demanding almost Rs 4 crore for 75-80 days per year. Their inputs will be invaluable. "But after choosing the coach they have given us two more consultants, which is not the normal pattern". In fact, in terms of sheer work ethic and commitment to training and diligence, there is no equal of Dravid in Indian cricket. They are most welcome.
