Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid & Zaheer Khan who has immensely contributed for the team very much and are the living legends of the Indian Cricket were not supposed to get humiliated in such a faulty manner
It has been a dramatic scene since the appointment process has started for the selection of coach may it be of batting, bowling head coach and who so ever, the lime lighted drama was upon the head coach selection which got fixed after the COA members came to a potential decision
The former COA committee member Ramchandra Guha said that this can be considered as the worst scenario in the history of Indian Cricket where the legends of the nation are not being treated well
Guha who had sensationally resigned from the Supreme Court-appointed panelin June, lamented the manner in which the coaching saga was handled by all parties involved. The noted historian, in a series of tweets, said that Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan were "true greats" of the game and "did not deserve this public humiliation".
The three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, had earlier this monthnamed Ravi Shastri as head coach while Dravid and Zaheer were appointed batting and bowling consultants, respectively, for specific overseas tours.
This past Saturday however the COA committee member came up with a clarification that the names in the like of Dravid and Zaheer as the coaching members for the overseas member were not fixed and neither it was on papers, but the name of Shastri was being officially announced.
There was no such legal document or any official announcement for the position of such posts that the media has being filing so far, if so this was the announcement BCCI would have put it on board and official papers as well.
This is not just the end of drama for this appointment process Guha also said in an interview that:
Guha has directly questioned Kohli's "veto power" on deciding matters like appointment of a coach and even the commentators' panel.
Guha had written that today, players are interfering in matters pertaining to appointment of coaches and commentators (Harsha Bhogle was removed for on-air criticism of Virat Kohli), tomorrow it may well be that they would like to have a say on office-bearers.
