I wasn't quite ready - Gillespie reveals India vacancy temptation

With the support of India's newly appointed head coach Ravi Shastri, Bharat Arun is all set to be signed by BCCI as a bowling coach, at least that was what the cricketing fraternity knew about on Sunday. "Thus, this arrangement", he said.

Arun had earlier served as the national team's bowling coach during Shastri's stint as India team director during 2014-16.

"The CEO or the management want their own people".

Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag, who was one of the frontrunners for the position of Team India coach, nearly won the job, but for a proposal to bring along with him a team of support staff, it has been reported. At the end of the day, if I'm the coach, I would want people who I'm comfortable with.

The CAC, comprising former India captains Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar along with former batsman V.V.S. Laxman, had suggested Zaheer Khan as bowling consultant and Rahul Dravid as overseas batting consultant for the India team. Zaheer wasn't ready for a full-time job and Shastri wanted a full-time bowling coach.

However, now it is clear that the whole point of confirming Dravid and Zaheer Khan will be done only after the meeting with CAC, clarified CoA.

On being asked whether the head coach and the consultants were selected in a proper manner, Singh declined to make a comment.

Other than the coach and players' disputes, there are some other issues that are tackled now.

Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus and Lalchand Rajput were interviewed for the position along with Shastri, with Gillespie ultimately deciding not to apply. "The support staff has been decided in consultation with the head coach".

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.

From the very beginning of the selection process, it is well known that skipper Virat Kohli is backing Shastri in every moment, the same is happening now and Shastri is picking the supporting staff as per his convenience with the support of Kohli.
