New Delhi:Nearly three weeks after John Wright relinquished his post, the Cricket Board today said it will appoint a committee in a couple of days to select a new coach for the Indian cricket team.

"We will constitute a committee in the next 48 hours which will decide on the next coach for the Indian team," BCCI President Ranbir Singh Mahendra told reporters here.

On whether the BCCI was contemplating to re-appeal against the six-match ban on captain Sourav Ganguly, Mahendra said. "We will follow the rules. Whatever we can do within the rules, we will do".

"I feel that the six-match ban is a little too harsh. My advise to Ganguly is to take it with courage. He is an experienbed player".

Ganguly was slapped with a six-match ban by ICC Match Referee Chris Broad for India's slow over rate after the fourth one-day international against Pakistan in Ahmedabad. He was fined 70 per cent of his match fee for the same offence in the third one-dayer in Jamshedpur.
