After the loss against Pakistan in Champions Trophy final Indian team left for their next to West Indies without head coach Anil Kumble and on same day Anil Kumble steps down as Indian Cricket Team head coach. Also before the start of Champions Trophy BCCI invited application for the post of head coach as Anil Kumble’s one year contract completed after Champions Trophy. But also Cricket Advisory Committee gave a recommendation to BCCI to extend the period for one more series against West Indies. Even Anil Kumble was the first choice for Cricket Advisory Committee for next coach also.
As the news coming out from media that there were problems between captain Kohli & coach Kumble that happened in Australia series also before Champions Trophy Final something happened between coach & captain and that ended in Anil Kumble’s resignation. So Indian team will play without head coach against West Indies.
Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag, Lalchand Rajput team manager in 2007 T20 world cup, former Indian fast bowler Dodda Ganesh, former Australian all-rounder & former Sri Lanka team coach Tom Moody & former England player Richard Pybus. Out of this Lalchand Rajput, Anil Kumble, Tom Moody & Richard Pybus have experience with an international team where Sehwag worked with Kings XI Punjab & Dodda Ganesh worked with a domestic team.
Some news coming out in media that Virat Kohli & some Indian players want Ravi Shastri as head coach but he didn’t apply for that post. Anil Kumble did a fantastic job in last one year even though BCCI gave extra importance to Virat Kohl’s choice compared to the success of team India. So it will be interesting to see that who will be next Indian Cricket Team Coach?
