Currently, the CAC, which is a three-member committee has been assigned the job of selecting the head coach of India’s Men cricket team. The members of the committee are Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad, and Shanta Ramaswamy. More than 2000 applications have been received by the BCCI if reports are to be believed.

Amid all this ongoing process, Virat Kohli had advocated for continuing with the incumbent head coach of India, Ravi Shastri. He had said, “The CAC hasn’t contacted me yet. If they want my opinion, I’ll go and speak to them. With Ravi Bhai, we share a great camaraderie, and will definitely be very happy if he continues. But I haven’t been contacted so far.”

Now, former Indian captain, Sourav Ganguly has also backed him. “He is the captain so, he has got the right to say,” Ganguly told reporters on the sidelines of the prize distribution ceremony for Zee Bangla Football League.

One of the CAC members, Anshuman Gaekwad had made it clear that Virat Kohli’s opinion won’t bother the CAC.

“We have to go with an open mind. There are interviews to be conducted. Lot of people from India and abroad have applied. We have to go there and assess things,” Gaekwad said.

“The captain can say anything. It doesn’t bother us. We are a committee. That’s his opinion and the BCCI takes a note of it, not us. It all depends on BCCI. BCCI has to give us guideline and then we will go accordingly. He has already said yesterday (what he wants). When we chose the women’s coach, we did not contact anybody. We did it on our own,” Gaekwad further said.
