During a recent press conference, Kohli said “From a personal point of view, I can’t pinpoint anything or give details.
We as a team, contrary to a lot of perceptions, only voice our opinions when asked by the BCCI for suggestions. So that is something we have always gone through as a process and that’s something we respect as a team”.
Soon , rumors surrounding former Indian Bowler Venkatesh Prasad’s application for the chief coach post surfaced, but were shot down by an unnamed source.
“Venkatesh Prasad’s CV is not there among those who have applied for the coach’s post. He is working as the chairman of selectors with the junior team. We don’t know who spread the news. Venky on his part never confirmed that he has applied for the job,” said the source.
