India‘s 3-1 embarrassment on account of England in the Test series obviously hasn’t run down well with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Duncan Fletcher‘s help staff has borne the brunt, however the coach himself has gotten away rebuff for the minute.

The errand of Ravi Shastri as group executive, and the incitement of Sanjay Bangar, B Arun and R Sridhar to aid Fletcher after Joe Dawes and Trevor Penney were asked to go on ‘leave’, were the first indications of a cleanup. Sanjay Patel, the BCCI secretary, has said they were ‘stern choices’ that must be made.

“We are obviously extremely disturbed with the route a portion of the wickets were tossed amid those Test matches. It is not that our young men don’t know to play cricket. I think what they needed amid the visit was mental durability,” he told The Indian Express. “Having said that, this misfortune was exceptionally disturbing for the board. The 2015 World Cup is adjacent and we all imagined that the time was ready to take some stern choices.”

Patel felt it was fundamental to make an agreeable climate for the players so as to encourage determining a portion of the mental issues they are continuously faced with. “The main thing the BCCI felt was essential was to make a safe place for the young men,” he said. “What’s more we believed that Ravi Shastri was the ideal man to make that sort of an environment. After a dialog with my associates in the board, we chose that the group required a help staff that was equipped for bringing the young men’s center once again on the game, and to intention their mental issues and shortcomings. Besides, they additionally obliged a man who would have the capacity to converse with them.”

Patel additionally made it clear that each part of the team ought to be considered responsible for its execution, before including that this sort of laidback disposition was unsatisfactory, which is the reason the board felt that it was high time restorative measures were placed set up. “Everybody must be made responsible for the execution of the group. This ‘chalta hai’ state of mind won’t work. We by and large hold up to accept such calls in the wake of evaluating the visit reports. Be that as it may it was clear that there was something wrong occurring this time around. What’s more we believed that we shouldn’t hold up before putting remedial measures set up. Some individuals may inquire as to why not hold up till the end of the visit to ring in the progressions. Yet this is the way I think, in case you’re feeling unwell today, will you take your medications now or do it following four days?”

Patel, in any case, declined to remark on what’s on the horizon for Fletcher. “Right now, it will be out of line to say anything in regards to Fletcher’s capability or his future. Everything will be chosen after we survey the visit report that will be displayed to us by the coach and manager,” he said.

With a string of woeful exhibitions under his administration, MS Dhoni has gotten a lot of fire from all corners, numerous addressing his qualifications as a Test captain. Patel demanded that Dhoni’s administration wasn’t a matter of concern inside the BCCI yet and that he still has their full sponsorship, including that was the occupation of the determination advisory group to choose on the off chance that he ought to proceed in his part. “My individual perspective is that I don’t uncertainty Dhoni’s captaincy certifications. The BCCI does take a gander at the execution of each commander, however Dhoni’s authority hasn’t generally come up for examination yet. Dhoni and his group still have our complete help and support.

“We have a choice panel set up, who will choose whether Dhoni is fit to be there as skipper or not. I as a board secretary can’t choose that. As a batsman, Dhoni did well yet I accept the greatest issue was that we never got huge runs from the top order.”

Patel likewise said that he would be traveling to England to address the players. “I’m going to be gathering with the players. I will be traveling to England soon. We are all vexed with the series misfortune and I’m certain so are the players.”

Sunil Gavaskar was among the numerous previous players who hammered India’s horrid demonstrating in England. The former India captain even blamed the players for “humiliating the nation”. Patel said it isn’t his employment to remark on specialized parts of the amusement, however held out the affirmation whatever the board did was for ‘the wellbeing of Indian cricket’. “Before taking any choice, we generally take a gander at all ranges and we have specialists who contribute as well. I can’t remark on the specialized issues of the players, that is not my range.”

The IPL has regularly been rebuked for India’s poor exhibitions in the long organization, however Patel decided to can’t help contradicting that view. “IPL has finished seven years now and amid that time, India has won and lost different competitions. Faulting the IPL is a simple thing.”
