Cricket Advisory Committee Blasts The CoA and Vinod Rai

Recommended Posts

Firstly the COA attacked the CAC via the media over its power of selecting additional coaches and also taking more time in making the decision.

 

So, Now a single member of the CAC and with the tone of the email everyone can guess it is Ganguly has hit back at the COA  :bumsmack:

 

 

 

Reverberations continued to be felt after the appointment of Ravi Shastri as India coach, as tension emerged between the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) that appointed him and the BCCI's Committee of Administrators (CoA). After a CoA member reportedly suggested the CAC had exceeded its brief in appointing Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan as consultants to support Shastri, the CAC hit back in an email in which it clarified its role in the process.

On Thursday, a CoA member was quoted in Indian media suggesting the CAC had overreached. In response the CAC sent the CoA an email addressed to chairman Vinod Rai, making it clear that it had informed both the new coach Shastri and the captain Virat Kohli that they would be joined by Dravid and Zaheer.

 

 

A member of the CAC strongly defended their appointments, saying the panel had got an email from Rai giving it full authority to oversee the coach recruitment process. "We have got an e-mail from the BCCI CEO [Rahul Johri] which had Vinod Rai saying you have got absolute free hand in deciding who will coach Indian cricket," a member, clearly incensed, said. "We have those e-mails. We are writing to Vinod Rai."

According to the CAC member, they have not received any direct communication from the CoA questioning their efforts in bringing Dravid and Zaheer on board. He also pointed out that the CAC had made sure both Shastri - "he was taken into confidence on everything, he was absolutely ready with it" - and Kohli were in the loop. "We have taken Virat Kohli into confidence. Every person who is involved knew about this".

 

 

The CAC member said that the panel was trying to clean up the mess created by the BCCI in the first place when it gave Anil Kumble a one-year contract. He added that the board had asked the panel about their recommendation for the position of coach - after an advertisement inviting new applications had been sent out - and they had replied saying Kumble remained their first choice.

But when he decided to resign, the CAC tried hard to, first repair the damage between Kumble and Kohli, and when that couldn't happen, pick the best available option in Shastri.

 

 

"We spoke to Kumble and we spoke to Virat on separate days. Then the BCCI representatives spoke to both of them together. After which Anil went out and resigned," the CAC member said.

 

But after all of this, the CAC member could not understand why they were being criticised. "You ask us to pick a coach and we do it honestly. And then we get battered for no fault of ours. We were asked to pick a coach last year independently. We picked the best candidate. That candidate gave you results for one year then you kicked him out. The CoA was nowhere in picture to solve the problem. We don't have the authority to solve the problem. If the CoA was in England and solved the problem, it wouldn't have come this far.

 

"Anil Kumble resigned. You advertised for the job on May 25. Then you advertised again accepting fresh applications till July 9. You got applications. Who picked the best person?"

Times of India has posted some more stuff from email/letter:

 

 

 The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) on Thursday shot a letter to CoA chief Vinod Rai, expressing "pain" at the perception that appointments of Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan were forced upon head coach Ravi Shastri.


The Committee of Administrator (CoA) has reportedly given the impression that CAC has gone beyond its brief in appointing Dravid and Zaheer as consultants when they were to select only the head coach.

"We spoke to Mr Shastri about getting Mr Khan and Mr Dravid on board in these capacities, and he readily agreed to the idea of having them in the set-up so that it would benefit the team and Indian cricket as a whole in time to come. It was only after getting Mr Shastri's consent that we also recommended Mr Khan and Mr Dravid, in their respective capacities," the letter, a copy of which is with PTI, read.

The legendary trio reminded Rai of an e-mail where he had apparently given them a free-hand in picking the coach of the Indian cricket team.

"There have been suggestions that the CAC has exceeded its ambit in going with MR Khan and Mr Dravid and these two legends of Indian cricket has been foisted on the head coach. Also we did inform you (Rai) over the phone along with Rahul Johri and Amitabh Choudhary of all that transpired immediately after the meeting was over."

In the beginning of the letter the CAC expressed its anguish.

"You will be aware that we put our heart and soul into the process, approaching a task made delicate by the recent developments with a clear head and with soul aim of providing Indian team with best resources possible to become world beaters they are capable of being.

 

"It has both pained and disappointed us, therefore, to see the light in which the CAC has been portrayed in various sections of the media," the letter read.

 

That the legends were deeply hurt was palpable where they urged Rai to "come public" with transparency of the system.

 

"It is our desire that you come public about the transparency of the process of identifying the next head coach so that the falsehoods are put to bed."

 

 

Their anger and disgust came out while concluding the letter.
 

 

"As we have outlined, that (forcing Zaheer and Dravid on Shastri) is not the case, it is imperative that the cricket- loving public at large is made aware of the reality. We could do it ourselves, of course, but we don't want to further queer the pitch. So we would respectfully request you to clear the air and set the record straight in this regard," the penultimate paragraph read.

 

They concluded with another strongly worded paragraph.

 

"The three of us played our cricket with great integrity, and we have brought that same trait in fulfilling this important responsibility bestowed upon us by the BCCI. While we are not looking for plaudits, we do not appreciate the tone and the falsehoods of the narratives."

CAC got played by Shastri. Revenge for not hiring him last time. This time he not only played his cards so he got the job, but made CAC look like fools. 

 

The Frank Underwood of Indian cricket.

i also used that simili, but think we should also not big him up. He is not some master strategist type, matter of fact he appears to be a very shallow bombastic person who gives loose interviews and shows his ego in public television.

Its true what the fuq the COA were doing when BCCI were disrespecting Kumble. Shouldn't they have taken things more seriously when one of their own resigned.  

The CAC didn't put themselves in glory either when they appointed Shastri. If they didn't trust him with full power and so had to appoint assistant coaches, then why appoint him in the first place. The only solution to this is to sack Kohli from captaincy at least from LOIs. Give some youngster to lead the charge.

Shastri is talking because he has Kohli and BCCI backing . Shastri was always a chaatu of BCCI just like Gavaskar. Superstar Kohli is the bane.

Dada may be playing unnecessary politics here.

Look while being biased for a candidate in the process is wrong but so is being biased against a candidate due to personal equations.

There was no need to select support staff. 

Each and everyone is playing politics here: Kohli, Shastri, Ganguly, Tendulkar, BCCI.
