I had written 'options against Coach Chappell' a year ago, containing nothing but loads of names.. that article never graduated to be a post on itsonlycricket.
World cup, then Bangla series n some more days hence ~ Indian cricket board is still evaluating those options. In this post, I will not name a single 'Indian coach probable' dominating cricket news these days, but my focus is on the actual NONE requirement of a fulltime coach of Team India. A triplet of Rahul Sachin Sourav, I believe, is enough to guide our team for coming 2 years.. untill we groom a youngster into next Indian captain.
Think as general. 'When you stick to a company so famous, for so long - you just can't digest being treated equal to freshers coming in', would you? the best thing for Indian board was to drop Sachin Tendulkar and never allow Sourav Ganguly a come back. Now that they have opted otherwise - some force of power, added respect & salary appraisal are a must.
Indian national cricket team has got a hungry bowling coach in Venky (Venkatesh Prasad) with fighter Robin Singh commanding fielding aspects. Captain Rahul Dravid with two other S's can take hold of batting regime. Lefties to Sourav and Righties to Rahul or Tendulkar ~ whoever is available.
All these three cricketers are capable to being commander of a cricket side. They know all twists n turns. been there n done that. And naturally being a human, have an idea of what should be done for a win, like any employee of any firm. So instead of BCCI feeling down n hurt for not finding tons of probables for the hottest cricket job in India - they better hand it over to our Triplets, who in turn take the responsibility of ACTING Indian coach, formally, publicly..
Series in Australia by the end of 2007 what we really should be focusing on. A test series win there - has always been eluding dream for them. We missed it by wishker last time. Hey BCCI, let the famous triplets have one more go--
