Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly sent a personal text to the current captain of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli which says that Virat should know how to join hands and work together with the coach after the fallout with Kumble
The CAC three member committee comprising of Sachin, Ganguly and Laxman has put the selection of head coach on hold despite of the interviewing process being over but the so called riot should be settled before they appoint a new one
“Virat will need to understand how coaches operate. At the same time, you have to give credit to Kohli that he has stayed out of the coach selection process. We will have a detailed chat with him once he is back from the West Indies,” said Ganguly.
The CAC committee though after the selection process was over said that they need more time to come to a final decision as they are not very clear with the views the coach and the player should process, Sachin Tendulkar was not available during the meeting but he joined the arena through Video conference to accumulate information and to carry on the process any further
The prince of Kolkata has made his statement very clear that they are looking for a coach for a longer tenure say for 2 years and it will be in the benefit and the interest of the cricket, so they are not hurrying themselves to come to a decision so made
“The process is done. All presentations were outstanding. We just want to talk more with people who matter. We all have to be on the same page. Whoever comes will be in charge till the 2019 World Cup. And we want to make sure there is no differences of opinion six months down the line.”
Virender Sehwag, Ravi Shastri, Lalchand Rajput, Tom Moody and Richard Pybus were the ones interviewd.
Asked about the inputs taken from Kohli in the meetings during the Champions Trophy, Ganguly said, “That was on a different aspect. As I said, he has stayed out of the whole thing.
“We want to make sure we take the best possible decision for Indian cricket. The coach, captain and players are the ones who will take Indian cricket forward. The CAC goes out of the picture once the coach is selected.”
Ganguly hinted that the coach will be picked before the Sri Lanka tour that begins with the first Test on July 26. Kumble resigned from the head coach’s post just after the ICC Champions Trophy final against Pakistan last month due to “untenable” differences with skipper Kohli.
