Ravi Shastri's appointment approved but no decision on Rahul Dravid, Zaheer Khan

BCCI takes U-turn over appointments

Rai also said that the support staff will only be confirmed after consultation with Ravi Shastri, for which a meeting has been arranged between the newly-appointed head coach and CoA's four-member panel, constituting acting Board President C K Khanna, CEO Rahul Johri, Secretary Amitabh Choudhary and Diana Edulji, with CEO as the Convener. This was decided after a CoA meeting today. We have set up a committee and they will speak to the CAC, communicate with them after talking to Shastri. "A recommendation has been made and the CoA has to act on the recommendation which will be done only after consultation with the head coach".

The release, which was unsigned, also seemed to indicate that Dravid and Zaheer would not have full-time roles, while leaving the exact nature of their association with the team fluid, simply stating that they would be consultants "on an overseas tour-to-tour basis" as per the team's requirement.

Moreover, the board of control for cricket in India (BCCI), three days after the appointment of Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan, took a massive u-turn on Friday and announced that the two consultants will be appointed on a tour-to-tour basis.

The committee has also been tasked with deciding on the contracts that will be handed to the coaches, including the head coach.

"We will further discuss with Shastri the appointment of other coaches".

Loads of new details have been revealed about The Incredibles 2
John Lasseter has stepped down as director of " Toy Story 4 ", leaving co-director Josh Cooley to take full reigns. Finally, after Jack Jack uses his laser eyes, elastic abilities and other powers, the ruckus finally wakes up Bob.

It is expected that Shastri would pitch for his favourite person Bharath Arun as he wants him to join Team India as a full-time bowling coach.

"Yes, the four-member committee has now been given the responsibility to take a call on the assistant coaches of the Indian team", the source said.

But, with their appointment put on hold, it has created a lot of uncertainty. The Lodha recommendations, as mandated by the Supreme Court on July 18, 2016, specifically empower the three-member selection committee to pick the head coach of the team. "But we have to consult each one of them, we have to ascertain their willingness and have to ensure that there is no conflict of interest issue".

But Shastri has made it clear that he wants the support staff of his choice, even though he is open to the idea of having the likes of Dravid and Zaheer coming over and meeting the team and sharing their invaluable experience. Zaheer reportedly did not wish to commit more than 100 days, but with CAC insisting, it is reported that the done deal is for 150 days. When Sourav Ganguly, who along with Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman is a part of the CAC, was asked about it. he said, "Zaheer was contacted for 150 days per year".

However, later the angry CAC members wrote a letter to CoA chief Vinod Rai that they have a mail from him which gave them a free hand to pick coach and sidekicks.
