Zaheer Khan reportedly did not wish to commit more than 100 days but with CAC insisting it is now a done deal for 150 days

Robin, who was sacked as fielding coach following India's poor performance in the 2009 T20 World Cup and Champions Trophy, said he was not in a position to comment on the Kohli-Kumble saga.

While the India vacancy appealed to Gillespie, who impressed many with his work at Yorkshire, the 42-year-old is unlikely to take charge of Sri Lanka following Graham Ford's departure. It's really a comfort level that you need to have. "All you can do as a coach is present your case on how you think you can make a difference and help the team perform better", he said. Everyone makes it a controversy. Zaheer not being ready to commit 250 days per season - as required for a full-time coach - may have also gone against him. "It's as simple as that".

Earlier, the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of the BCCI, comprising Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman had named their former teammates Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid as the bowling and batting consultants respectively of the Indian team.

The former Australian cricketer in a way backed BCCI's call to make Shastri the head coach of the national team. "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".

Former Australian pacer Jason Gillespie today said he might be interested in applying for India coach's job in a couple of years.

Rai also said that a five-member committee would be formed to decide the financial terms of the support staff, which would be headed by the CEO of the board, Rahul Johri. In selected as the bowling coach of the Indian cricket team, he will have to relinquish his positions both in the TNPL and IPL, as the new BCCI rules have been created to crack down on conflicts of interest. Notably, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) also side with the head coach, saying it had put on hold the contracts of Khan and Dravid.

The various stakeholders involved look do not look to be communicating effectively with each other, as was obvious when the CAC wrote a letter to the CoA expressing its disappointment at the manner in which it was being targetted by the media only for what it believed was the job assigned to it.

First, there was drama and confusion over the selection of the head coach of the Indian cricket team.
