BCCI, CoA lauds CAC
Thanked the Sourav Ganguly-led panel for recommending Ravi Shastri as head coach 
Ravi Shastri’s appointment as India coach has received the backing of the Committee of Administrators (CoA), as the latter praised the Sourav Ganguly-led Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) for completing the selection process.
“The Cricket Advisory Committee has made its recommendation regarding the coach. It is a comprehensive recommendation covering all aspects of the coaching requirement of any team. They have applied themselves to the cause at hand with dedication and commitment. This is exactly what we had expected from a committee of such distinguished cricketers. On behalf of all interested in ‘Cricket India’, BCCI and the COA, I thank them for the service so willingly rendered by them. We accept their recommendation in totality,” read a BCCI press release.
“Now that they have made the choice, we sincerely feel that the new combination will steward the team to number 1 position in the World Cup,” it further added.
“We need to put the immediate past events to rest and wish the team, the Captain, coach and support staff a very ‘happy Innings’ in the run up to the World Cup,” concluded the statement by CoA.
Shastri’s name was finalised after the CAC interviewed five of the six candidates they had interviewed for the position.
Shastri had been rumoured to be the front runner for the position once the selection process started following the departure of his predecessor Anil Kumble.
Kumble had earlier stepped down from his position after the ICC Champions Trophy, saying his partnership with captain Virat Kohli had become ‘untenable’.
