Amidst the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 underway in the UK, back home in India, there are several issues plaguing the BCCI. One of those major issues, is surrounding the selection of the appropriate candidates to take over as the head coach of Team India in the near future. Current coach Anil Kumble’s contract comes to an end post the tournament, and the side will be eager to hire someone of great repute as the head coach.
The last few weeks to top it all, have been marred by reports of a rift between Anil Kumble and Virat Kohli. This has added a lot of attention towards the issue of the next coach and thereby, like 2016, the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising of Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar, will have to conduct a thorough process of short listing the next coach of the Indian side.
With current coach Anil Kumble directly earning a nomination among the narrowed down candidates for the job, below, we have a look at the 5 likely individuals who could take over the role of Team India’s head coach really soon.
