Indian cricket team new coach: It is expected that the Cricket Advisory Committee will not elect a new coach of the Indian cricket team.
The much talked about position of the coach of the Indian cricket team has it in it to allure plentiful eyeballs. With the selection process likely to begin soon, it was a great probability that the current head coach in Ravi Shastri will be replaced.
It was earlier reported that the selection process for the same is likely to be delayed citing conflict of interest among the members of the selection committee – the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) appointed CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee). What has further helped in raising interest about the selection of the coach is this conflict of interest getting solved.

In a fresh series of developments, a CAC member has disclosed that Shastri is all set to receive a fresh contract for the committee doesn’t want to change the coach because of the results under him. “We are not too keen to bring in a foreign coach. Yes, had someone of the stature of Gary Kirsten applied, we might have given it a thought.
The whole country want #RaviShastri ousted as the head coach but some morons in BCCI feels he should continue .

“But even then, an Indian would have always been the priority. After all, the team has also done well under an Indian head coach, so why look for a change? As things stand now, [Ravi] Shastri does look to be the favourite to be handed a fresh contract,” the CAC member was quoted as saying to Hindustan Times.
What is CAC fails to zero in on one name?
Under Chairman Kapil Dev, the CAC comprises of former Indian cricketer and coach Anshuman Gaikwad and former India women’s captain Shantha Rangaswamy. On being asked the aforementioned question, the CAC member mentioned that Dev’s decision will be considered final in such a scenario.
“See, firstly, it is a three-member panel, so a split decision is highly unlikely. But yes, if at all a situation does arise where A goes for one candidate, B for another and C for another, the vote of the chairman will come in and the decision will stand. But as of now, we don’t see something like that happening
“But yes, we will give the board options like our first preference is A, second preference is B and third preference for the job is C. That is more because there can be a case like at the time of the women’s coach appointment when [Gary] Kirsten had IPL commitments,” the member added.
