Nothing wrong if coach picks support staff, says Robin Singh

Nothing wrong if coach picks support staff, says Robin Singh

"Let me put it like this". I don't like to work with people who I don't know. "You have to work with people with whom you have an understanding and who you think can execute", Robin, was quoted as saying by TOI. "Ask anyone, whether it's a cricketer or any other professional, everyone wants his own people", he said. Robin said that coaches should be given the freedom to choose their colleagues, adding that he would want to work with people whom he is comfortable with had he been appointed in the role. Everyone makes it a controversy.

In case you didn't know.

.

He further stressed that this sort of approach is not unique to cricket, this is how decisions are made in any management worldwide. The CoA, at a meeting in New Delhi on July 15, made a decision to hold in abeyance the appointments of Zaheer and Dravid, probably to find out from Shastri the roles that should be given to them over the next two years.

BCCI and COA committee members comprising Ganguly, Laxman and Tendulkar will appoint new bowling coach for team India.




Kumble left after falling out with captain Virat Kohli despite enjoying a successful run during his year in charge.

Sehwag was among the five candidates that were running for the job along with Ravi Shastri, Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput and Richard Pybus. But what said to had "spoiled" Sehwag's chances was his proposal to rope in a new support staff which included Kings XI Punjab assistant coach Mithun Manhas and physiotherapist Amit Tyagi in the place of the existing support staff.

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. The Indian team will be leaving for Sri Lanka on Wednesday and BCCI is likely to announce the support staff on Tuesday.

Why were Dravid and Khan appointed if Shastri wasn't comfortable with them if at all the "process" of taking the coach into confidence isn't as farcical as the entire coach-selection saga has appeared to be?
