    Whatmore throws his hat into the ring!

    Bangladesh coach Dav Whatmore has thrown his hat into the ring to succeed Greg Chappell as Indian cricket coach.

    On the day Chappell handed in his resignation, two weeks after the team's first-round exit in the World Cup, Whatmore confirmed his interest in taking over the reins in India from his Australian compatriot.

    The 53-year-old Whatmore coached Sri Lanka to World Cup success in 1996 and has worked wonders with the Bangladesh team, who effectively condemned India to an early exit from the World Cup with a surprise victory in the group phase of the competition.

    The Indian board meets over two days starting Friday to delve into the World Cup debacle and discuss the subject of the next coach.

    The BCCI offers the best money and luxuries to its coaches and support staff compared to any other board in the world, so i am not least suprised if Whatmore is interested in the job.

    He'd probably do a good job too.

    Considering the fact that he is quite low key in approach, part sub-continental himself, as well as having extensive experience in that part of the world.

    I would say he is the front runner.


    But it woul be an absolute pity if guys like Sourav, Sachin, Viru, Harbhajan, AA and Yuvraj were left untouched after all that has happened. They have to take some part of the blame too. As one newspaper had said "his approach and his attitude may have been wrong, but at least, Chappell had no hidden agendas and only wanted Indian cricket to improve".
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    I know about money but not about the luxuries though because there's a lot of hostilities there but still money talks...so whatmore walks..

    Whatmore might be a good coach as far as i can see....we just have o hope that if he is selected, he is keen to bring in new ideas and doesnt get too influenced by the senior players...so he will be encouraged to bring in new players etc etc!

    I think India should go for an un-proven coach, but someone who has excelled on the international scence. Someone like......
