CoA to meet Ravi Shastri on July 22 to discuss issue

The appointment of Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan, as part of the support staff, on overseas tours, awaits confirmation after the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chose to decide the issue in consultation with head coach Ravi Shastri on July 22.

The CoA members — Vinod Rai, Diana Edulji and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri — met here on Saturday and approved Shastri’s appointment. Strangely, the CoA did not go by the claim of the BCCI that Dravid and Zaheer were consultants for specific overseas tours.

“We have taken all the recommendations of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) for Shastri as head coach and we will further discuss with him the appointment of other coaches,” said Rai.

On the status of Dravid and Zaheer, he said, “It’s not an appointment. A recommendation has been made and the CoA has to act on it. The recommendation will be acted upon in consultation with the head coach.”

Mr. Rai said, “Three appointments which are core to the coaching team have been decided. But we have to consult each one of them. We have to ascertain their willingness and ensure there is no conflict of interest.”

It may be recalled that the CAC, which chose Dravid and Zaheer, had expressed “pain” at the impression being created that the duo was thrust upon Shastri. The CAC members — Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and V.V.S. Laxman — had clarified that the names were finalised after consulting Shastri.

However, a Board official had pointed that the CAC had clearly exceeded its mandate by naming the two as part of the support staff when the three-member panel was only entrusted with the responsibility of naming the head coach after meeting the applicants.

To fix the remuneration of Shastri and members of the support staff, the CoA has formed a panel, including acting-president C.K. Khanna, acting-secretary Amitabh Choudhary, Johri and Edulji. This panel will meet CoA with its recommendations on July 22.

Meanwhile, it was also decided to release an advertisement for professional managers for the senior, India-A and the under-19 teams.

The Indian side is due to leave for the tour of Sri Lanka on July 19. The first Test begins on July 26.
