    India always had a bowling coach, even when Shastri was Director of Cricket the first time. Pretty sure it will be the same lines of demarcation now.

    3 full time coaches including head coach - that's pretty much the standard for all teams these days.
    Yeah head coach along with bowling and batting consultants are pretty much norm. I was referring to the guys who said India doesnot need coaches at this level like Kapil dev said it

    Bangar has always been there and knows the limits of his role well. Dravid wouldn't dream of interfering. Zaheer is the bowling consultant and has no power. There is one major base of decision making and that's Shastri-Kohli who seem to gel well.
    No it's quite bad. Shastri wants his own support staff as per the screenshot I posted. There was a rumour there would be a bigwig he would bring soon. One wonders why the committee went beyond their power of appointing the coach to appoint advisers which they were not supposed to do. A coach needs his own men, it helps him function the way he intends to. Even Sehwag had suggested that he would bring his own men, which is reasonable really.

    I thought only the BCCI, the Indian Cricket Team, and the Supreme Court can mess up something that was not broken this bad. Then I see what is happening with CA and the Australian cricketers..

    This isn't my wish. It is just what it has been. You can't appoint a coach and choose the support staff. Ganguly, Sachin and Dravid went beyond their powers and it was really not nice of them to appoint the support staff.

    CAC looks more and more like dummy. They did not want Shastri but he was eventually chosen. Now this.

    There has been news around that it was basically Ganguly who wanted anyone but Shastri and has been the case since last year for whatever reason against Sachin, Kohli and everyone else being pro Shastri. Apparently Sachin convinced Shastri to apply, and Ganguly tried hard to ensure Shastri wont take it by first choosing the support staff for Shastri and then trying to delay the announcement saying he needed to talk to Kohli. VVS stayed out since Moody was involved, which was very convenient to help him stay neutral I think. The CAC is just a mess and honestly, the more I see and hear what Ganguly has to say, the more I feel we should keep him away from such committees as much as possible. Its fine if he is elected president of the CAB, but lets not have him in these committees. Very conveniently overlooked conflict of interest there too.

    The problem for me is that this isn't a full time job like say Strauss for England. They come, meet, go back to their million other things, come back, and so on. Ganguly is dominant personality and wants his way and so is Kohli. We can't have two people who want to impose their views like this. A captain should get freedom and so should coach. The idea of a committee is good. However, then we have another committee appointed by the supreme court which has veto powers sort of. The tussles should end, else 2019 is going to end in disaster like 2007.

    2007 was bad but then we never really had a prayer of beating that Aussie side even with our best men all in their best moods. 2019 is gonna be so disappointing coz its obvious we have the team and the talent to bring home the WC and yet we are gonna squander it away with off field issues. The Pak board are doing better than us, FFS.

    The BCCI had nothing to do with this mess, for a change. This is entirely on the shoulders of the COA and the CAC.

    That is ****. Why can't we have 4 Tests in SA. FFS

    Then again, if we're getting smashed, it might be a blessing, but I suspect we might not do so bad in this round of overseas tours. Did relatively well in our last two-three trips there, last time with a very inexperienced team.
