Why are selectors not picking the head coach?
The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) don’t appear to be enforcing the Justice Lodha Committee’s recommendations in selecting India’s head coach.
As per the recommendations, validated by the court, only the men’s selection committee can pick the coach.
The Lodha panel doesn’t make any reference to the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), which has been set the task instead.
The relevant part of the recommendation says: “The men’s Selection Committee ... shall also be responsible for vetting and selecting Coaches and Support Staff ... as well as providing evaluation reports of the respective team performances to the Apex Council on a quarterly basis.”
It’s a fact that the BCCI has not implemented the Supreme Court order dated July 18, 2016.
But it did alter the composition of its senior selection committee, easing out Jatin Paranjape and Gagan Khoda, in keeping with the directive recommending a three-member body of retired Test cricketers.
A senior BCCI official wondered why the Board, so prompt to apply the recommendation pertaining to the composition of the selection committee, had not tasked the selectors with choosing the head coach.
