In dark over cricket coach job, administrators disapprove fresh round of applications

THE SUPREME Court-selected Committee of Administrators (CoA) is learnt to have authoritatively communicated its dismay over the BCCI keeping it out of the loop about the choice to welcome new applications for the occupation of the India group's mentor after the withdrawal of Anil Kumble. At a meeting a week ago in Mumbai, the CoA — Vinod Rai, Vikram Limaye and Diana Edulji — addressed BCCI CEO Rahul Johri about the need to look past the individuals who had officially connected and why the board was not kept insider savvy. The CoA's difference is relied upon to figure in the minutes of that meeting. 

As indicated by BCCI sources, Johri's clarification that potential mentors had remained away before in light of the suspicion that Kumble would be held turned out poorly well with the CoA. 

"Not everyone was persuaded by Johri's clarification and Phase Two of the mentor choice process was viewed as pointless. He was even inquired as to whether new applications were welcomed at chief Virat Kohli's command," said sources. 

Prior this month, previous BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke had disclosed to The Indian Express that Kohli had favored Ravi Shastri over Kumble a year back. 

Two weeks back, BCCI secretary Amitabh Chaudhary had told journalists on the sidelines of the Champions Trophy that the board would impart the rundown of contender to the media by that night, yet will be yet to do as such. Sources said Shastri's name doesn't figure on that rundown, which had Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput, Richard Pybus and Dodda Ganesh. 

Asked whether he had counseled the CoA before conveying the second welcome on June 23 for contender to apply for the mentor's position, Johri disclosed to The Indian Express: "We had educated all concerned." 

In any case, sources said that even some BCCI authorities were annoyed with the way the determination procedure has unfurled, with some pointing fingers at the prominent Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and V S Laxman. 

"On one hand, the BCCI says they are recently following the way toward calling an application for the head mentor's occupation. Then again, they haven't met a solitary applicant who connected for the occupation up until now. (Previous Australia quick bowler) Craig McDermott's application was rejected on the grounds that his application was gotten after the due date. After this, the CAC supported Kumble without meeting any competitor. So why would that be this joke of calling for applications once more?" said a BCCI official. 

On June 20, BCCI issued a public statement, which expressed: "BCCI affirms that Mr Anil Kumble has pulled back his administrations as… set out mentor toward the senior India men's group. While the Cricket Advisory Committee had embraced an expansion to his residency as head mentor, Mr Anil Kumble has chosen not to proceed as the mentor." 

The CAC will meet on July 10 to begin the procedure to choose another mentor. 

In the interim, the CoA is likewise furious about the BCCI's hesitance to share three chiefs' reports from a year ago, when Kumble was mentor. "The CoA needs to realize that if so much was going on in the background in the changing area, did the director hail the break?" said sources.
