BCCI is about to take a decision in the Apex Council meeting
The board can consider the name of different coaches in different formats
new Delhi. The recent performance of the Indian cricket team is under question. Series by series performance has declined since coach Rahul Dravid took charge of the team. The defeat in the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup in Australia has forced the Board of Control for Cricket in India to take a big decision. The new BCCI President Roger Binny had already made it clear that he is going to take very tough decisions.
Some big decisions will be taken in the Apex Council meeting of BCCI. The responsibilities of Indian cricket team coach Rahul Dravid are also to be discussed in the meeting. According to the news of ANI, in the Apex Council meeting of BCCI on December 21, there is going to be a discussion on trying out the formula of different coaches in different formats of Team India. A separate coach can be made for the T20 format with separate Tests and ODIs.
Many veterans have advocated having a separate captain and coach for the Indian team in different formats. Coach Ravi Shastri’s tenure ended after the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. It was only after this that Rahul Dravid took over and now he is taking care of the coach for the team in all the three formats.
In the Apex Council meeting, along with the coach of different formats, there is news of discussion on the captain as well. Hardik Pandya can be given the T20 captaincy in place of Rohit Sharma. At present, he was given this responsibility in the series against New Zealand. Earlier, he has also captained the T20 team against Ireland.
