Shastri recommends Bharat Arun for India bowling coach

Shastri recommends Bharat Arun for India bowling coach

Unhappy that the CAC had picked Dravid and Zaheer without its approval, the CoA decided the best way forward was to appoint a committee comprising BCCI officials to decide if the pair's services are required. Acording to source, the COA has chose to grant Shastri his wish as it is no secret that the head coach will have to work with the bowling coach on a full-time basis and there should be clear communication and understanding between the two individuals.

The committee came into existence to resolve the confusion created in the wake of the BCCI announcing the names of Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan as overseas Test batting and overall bowling consultants. Sehwag was one of the five candidates who went for the interview, and according to those in the know of developments, his presentation was the third most impressive after Ravi Shastri and Tom Moody's.

The special committee - comprising acting BCCI president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary, CEO Rahul Johri and Committee of Administrators member Diana Edulji - will meet Shastri at BCCI headquarters in Mumbai to decide the support staff of the India team. Zaheer wasn't ready for a full-time job and Shastri wanted a full-time bowling coach.

He departed the national team set-up along with Shastri previous year when former India leg-spinner Anil Kumble was appointed as the head coach. "Thus, this arrangement", the BCCI official said.

Nationally, AAA reports the average gas price is $2.25, one cent less than a week ago and three cents more than previous year . DeHaan said a special meeting OPEC has scheduled for July 27 will be watched for any policy or production changes.

As far as Arun is concerned, the CoA has made it clear that he and other support staff will have to resolve all conflict-of-interest issues before assuming charge.

While it is rumoured that former team director Ravi Shastri was the front-runner for the job due to his relationship with Indian captain Virat Kohli, it is learnt that Virender Sehwag also had a positive chance of being selected for the job in a report by the Times of India.

The appointment of Shastri as the head coach was also mired in controversies when reports emerged that Shastri was the first-pick choice of Sachin Tendulkar, a CAC member, while Sourav Ganguly, the other member of the committee, wasn't in agreement with the choice.
