The CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee) comprising of Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shanta Rangaswamy appointed to pick the new coach for Team India has made it clear that it is not looking at any foreign face. The uncertainty over whether incumbent coach Ravi Shastri will continue has been put to rest.
With the team doing so well under Shastri, the latter will continue as the head coach of the Indian cricket team. A CAC member said that if someone of the stature of Gary Kirsten had applied for the post, then the CAC would have given it thought. The committee felt that when the team had done so well under an Indian coach, there was no reason to look at foreign shores. The CAC also felt that a change in coach might disturb the equation that exists rather than allow the players to have the mental space to excel.
