Announce head coach by July 12: Vinod Rai 
CAC member Sourav Ganguly had announced on Monday that they needed Virat Kohli to understand the different working ways of different coaches
Just hours before Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) members are assembling here in the Capital to have yet another Special General Meeting (SGM) on Tuesday, Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators’ chief Vinod Rai has apparently directed the secretary Amitabh Choudhary to announce the name of Team India chief coach by today itself.
This has taken Choudhary by surprise as he was only Monday evening told by Cricket Advisory Committee member Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman that they need time to discuss few things with skipper Virat Kohli before announcing a particular name.
“Kohli needs to understand how different coaches operate. We will speak to him after he returns from US,” was how Ganguly told BCCI secretary after interviewing five candidates --- Ravi Shastri, Virender Sehwag, Lalchand Rajput, Tom Moody and Richard Pybus --- on Monday.
In another significant development, Choudhary has also overruled BCCI acting president CK Khanna letter on delaying the SGM for few more days.
DNA has learnt that it all started when few member states questioned Choudhary's intention over calling SGM with only a notice of less than three days.
“Under no circumstances, BCCI SGM could take place without a proper notice of 10 days as been prescribed in our constitution,” questioned a senior BCCI member late on Monday. Having heard the protest calls, Khanna apparently shot a letter to Choudhary to postpone the meeting to some other day, in order to adhere to BCCI constitutional provisions.
However, Choudhary shot down BCCI acting president’s request and decided to carry on with the original plan of SGM in a Delhi’s five-star hotel on Tuesday evening.
With SC slated to take up BCCI matter on July 14, after summer vacations, Choudhary obviously would not be seen as party to delaying the implementation of Justice Lodha panel recommendations.
