Mumabi: This is the first time in indian cricket history when the two former indian skippers spat on a post for Indian Coach. As the director of Indain Cricket team Ravi Shastri has alot of responsibility to manage resources & fulfilling the needs of Indian Cricket team. Saurav Ganguly was appointed recently as the coach of Bengal Cricket Association & resigned few days ago.However in the past week, its facade of decorum and due process has been ripped apart as the search for a chief coach triggered a controversy that has turned the cricket board on its head.This is not to say that Shastri is any less. But once he put himself at the mercy of a committee that had Ganguly in it, he was toast.
There is an element of friction between the two and it has been simmering for quite some time now.But the point here is not about individuals. It is about systems and process. Unless these are stringently followed, the Board would continue to be run on whims and fancies. BCCI must have set trends so that the selection processes would be feasible for everyone. Ganguly commented on Ravi Shastri,"Ravi Shastri must be present infront of the committee instead of facing interview on skype." This topic raised in media as fire and spat created between these two former skippers with words.Ganguly played a little on Ravi Shastri saying he is living in fools paradise & must have been in India while interview rather than joinning on skype. But Shastri was not only the committee member who joined on skype for Interview during their holidaying, Sachin Tendulkar is also spending his holidays in london & he too joined through skype for interview, but Ganguly did not speak on Tendulkar thats why the question marked on Ganguli statement. Saurav Ganguly had already said earlier that the comittee must not need to ellaborate to the players without taking a final decision on coach. In the case of Bowlers coach, Initially, Kumble was not even shortlisted in the list of 21 candidates, he was added later. Kumble , the most wicket taker of India did not marked any question on selection process because he did not meed the two important eligibility criteria for the position. The committee not only shortlisted him, but also decided to choose him as coach, almost as if they had decided in advance of who their choice would be.
