Subscribe to Oneindia News

Mumbai, Nov 12 (UNI) The long pending matter of the appointment of a coach for the Indian team will top the agenda when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) office-bearers, headed by its President Sharad Pawar, meet in Delhi tomorrow.

The naming of a coach has been kept pending since the decision of previous incumbent Greg Chappell to not to seek a renewal of his contract following the national team's dismal show in the World Cup.

The BCCI's quest in finding a new coach since then has not borne fruit and twice, in the last couple of months, a meeting of the special coach selection committee had been put off for different reasons.

Currently, Lalchand Rajput is incharge of the team's affairs as its cricket manager on a series to series basis after having taken over the job from another former Test cricketer Chandu Borde at the end of India's trip to England.

Rajput's tenure, however, has been finalised only till the end of the current five-match ODI series against Pakistan on November 18.

The two teams are to take part in a three-Test series at the end of the ODI rubber from November 22 to December 12.

After a short break of three-four days, India are set to depart for a full tour of Australia with their first tour match Down Under, against Victoria, scheduled on December 20.
