Bangalore, Jan 12: With the BCCI working committee meeting scheduled on Jan 15, discussion about the coach and whether his contract needs to be renewed or cancelled could also be one of the topics for discussion.
Given Duncan Fletcher's record as India coach, it is learnt that BCCI is not keen on renewing his contract that expires in March 2013.
With the coach's role up for grab, who could get into that role?
Here are a few options
Since there are problems related to communication talking about foreign coaches and the attitude that doesn't suit our players, do we have to get back the best Indian cricketers for the role?
Rahul Dravid as batting consultant
Third highest run-scorer in Tests, Rahul Dravid could be the right person to train youngsters on batting technique and teach them the art of catching at slips.
VVS Laxman also as batting consultant
Very Very Special Laxman could also join Rahul Dravid in train young cricketers the art of catching at slips and batting skills.
Anil Kumble to train spinners
Anil Kumble has been the most successful leg-spinner in the last couple of years. His experience could help Team India in bringing about a change.
Kapil Dev as bowling coach
India is lacking a quality pace attack and the World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev could help young fast bowlers and train them ahead of the 2015 World Cup.
Sourav Ganguly, considered as the most successful Indian captain, could take over as head coach while we could have a few more inclusions.
Since the most talented duo Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman have also announced their retirement, BCCI could make use of their experience by roping them as batting consultants.
Similarly Anil Kumble, Kapil Dev could be roped in as bowling consultants.
Since Duncan Fletcher's efforts are not satisfactory, former Indian cricketers could share their experience with the current squad and help them retrieve their success formula.
The Test team is already missing Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman, their presence could have a positive effect on the team as they could boost the team's morale. Similarly Ganguly, the best to motivate players could have a pep talk with players and also guide them on planning strategies ahead of the tours.
Anil Kumble and Kapil Dev could as well help the team improve the bowling department, as we are lacking a quality spin and pace attack.
This could be one dream support staff team with all the players who have undergone highs and lows, can understand the current team's struggles better than anybody else and try to change things around for Team India.
