    Dav Whatmore To Be The Next Team India Coach

    Dav Whatmore To Be The Next Team India Coach


    BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah has confirmed that Australian Dav Whatmore will be named as the next Team India coach adding that the formal announcement for the same would be made on June 04.

    Whatmore, who has coached Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, had expressed his keenness to coach Team India while he was still the coach of Bangladesh. The team that was responsible for India's terrible run at World Cup 2007.

    The seven-member special committee with president Sharad Pawar in the chair will meet in Bangalore on June 4 to select Greg Chappell's full-time successor.

    Shah is himself on the committee, as are former captains Srinivas Venkatraghavan, Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri. The remaining members are Board joint-secretary Mohinder Pandove and treasurer N. Srinivasan.

    According to Shah, the next coach's appointment would be for one year with the contract having provision for a two-year extension.

    Well if the senior players allow him to be the coach, I'm sure he will do very well. I hate the fact that the appointment is only for one year. It should be a minimum of 2-3 year term. It is hard for any sort of plan to come to fruition in such a short time.

    Definitely agree. For any team to become a champion one, all aspects of it must be comfortably working together. It takes a long time to establish this sort of comfortability, not just one year. If Indian cricket needs anything now it's stability. And that includes the coach too. We saw with Chappell just how much importance is placed upon the coach in Indian cricket.

    More, though, we saw that Chappell was a poor coach.

    I hope Whatmore does a good job, some of these players need a good kick up the bum.

    I think he could bring India to the top but I agree 1 year contract is too short but I guess they want to see how it goes then make it longer although you have to give a coach time before making judgements on how he's doing and 1 year isn't that long of a time.

    A lot of the current players as well, it could go either way.

    And players who play like a bunch of over-hyped and overpaid cricketers who couldn't hold a candle to some of the games best of the 80's and 90's.

    IMO the buck also stops with the players since they are out there, a coach can only do so much, so if you have to sack a coach, sack the players as well since they are the ones who score the runs, take the wickets, catch or drop catches.

    I'm not saying a coach should not be held accountable, but it is a two way street.

    Nice, but as pointed out, 1 year is just stupid. Wish the BCCI would grow a brain.
