The BCCI is all set to reveal the new coach for the national team and Kapil Dev the ex-Indian captain said that team India can do without the services of a coach and that all this team needs is a good manager.

India will tour Bangladesh on the 7th of June and this will be the first time that the Indian team is without a head coach going into an international tour. This shows that the members of the board have not reached unison. It is believed that Jagmohan Dalmiya and Anurag Thakur have not been able to agree about the right man for the job.

Ganguly who wants to stay in office for a four year term will find it hard as almost all the board members are against giving such a long term contract while Ravi Shastri is happy with an 18 month contract. This has led to speculation that BCCI is thinking about external sources in Gary Kirsten and an IPL regular Tom Moody. Team India has had a successful stint with International coaches with Kirsten, Fletcher and Chappel have all given some good moments for the team.

Kapil who felt that there should not be to many ex-players involved in the team said that it would be best to appoint a manager to a team with such high caliber and potential. He added that with the present group of superstars, all the team needs is a colleague who can help the players when they are down.

With South Africa set to tour India later in the year, Kirsten might just get the better of Ganguly, Shastri and Dravid all of whom are already occupied with media assignments.
