BCCI is in a dilemma after the semi-final exit from The World Cup 2019, either to continue with Ravi Shastri or pick a new coach for the team. They earlier streamlined the eligibility criteria for the next head coach and also set up a three-member team to give the verdict.
The head coach should have coached a Test playing nation for a minimum of two years or three years with an associate member/A team/IPL side. The applicant also should have played 30 Tests or 50 ODIs. The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising of Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy are free to pick the next head coach keeping in mind the future roadmap.
Do you think India should go for a foreign face to coach the team? According to the criteria set, Tom Moody, Mike Hesson, Mahela Jayawardane are few names that pop into my mind but going by the current scenario where the Indian team is undergoing trasition the change might disrupt the equation in the squad.
Personally speaking- I want Rahul Dravid to take over as the Head Coach. He is the current Overseas Batting Consultant for the Indian team, and also the Head Coach for the India Under-19 as well as India-A. He’s got the results too and we know how humble a personality he is. Their wouldn’t even be any clash of ideas with the team or with the captain of course.
