The Indian board named former chief selector Chandu Borde as cricket manager for the tours of Ireland and England on Tuesday.

The board's decision-making working committee chose to go in for an interim arrangement as they had done for the recent tour of Bangladesh after Australian Greg Chappell resigned as coach following the World Cup debacle.

South African Graham Ford declined the offer to coach the national team on Monday.

Borde, 72, played 55 tests and has served as manager in the past.

India play a three-match one-day series against South Africa in Ireland later this month before heading to England in July for three tests and seven one-dayers.

The board is scheduled to hold a press conference later on Tuesday.

How many interim coaches before they find one?

This is bad news for us as their selection will be further delayed.Its total drama,the next day they might snatch RM because we want him and they heard he is good.

Cricket Manager guys not Coach, cant u read the headlines in bold!

Borde is very respected in indian cricket circles both among players and his colleagues and as I said bfr india dont need a coach at all. Borde is a good choice although Ravi, Sunny, Kapil would be better, but they are not available.

Anyone but Kapil. Made the blunder of making him the coach once. Never again, please.

No Miraz, when they appointed Shastri for BD tour, they were specific to stay he will be the interim-coach cum Manager.

That was the first time and clarification was required.

Now everyone in India should understand the term Cricket Manager, otherwise he should have been mentioned as Team Manager.

Is it clear now?

They had made a similar mistake before the Bangladesh series, announcing a 14 member team without Ramesh Powar.

No It is not !!! Manager to a cricket team is a Team manager or a Cricket Manager, there was no mention of he being the interim coach.

And i will pass on your expertise to "everyone in India" later.

miraz u seem to be obsessed in explaining the term cricket manager (seems u changed the title from manager to coach and also added a profie photo, other than ur explanations)..anyway it does nt matter how u interpret it.

the bottomline is he will just act as a manager and not as a coach and no need for further explanations. thanks but no thanks!

I think both the source u mentioned is wrong. look at cricinfo (which everybody should agree is the most reliable source for cricket) and they just mention the term manager.borde is a great administrator and he served as a manager before during pak tour.so he will just do that role.is that clear?

Check out the cricinfo link :

Thanks for the link. It was not there earlier. Now two paragraph from Cricinfo.

Borde's appointment comes after Graham Ford, the former South African coach who's currently the director of cricket at Kent, rejected the Indian board's offer to coach the national side."But this is going to be a short-term job. I don't know what wonders he can do. It's not going to be easy for him. It's not fair to Mr Borde. Also, there is going to be a lot of pressure on Dravid. I hope he does well with the bat and with leading the team. At the end of the day the blame [if India don't do well] will fall on the captain. I don't think it will be fair on Dravid."He is not a normal team manager like "Sanjay Jagdale" was for World Cup 2007, that's for sure.

I am not worried about india finding a coach, they a whole list of qualified coaches right in their country, so its not a big deal if they take sometime. I am worried about bangladesh, so far everyone BCB contacted has turned them down :(

slyzyguy,

I read the cricinfo link too, i acknowledged Miraz on the link or the source he had got his info from.

I am the culprit to start this diff in opinion.
From the "source" he posted, he is right.
According to your source you are right.

so where is my source ? God is the source for all, lets all rest in peace and leave this topic as such. But does India now have any other source where they can recruit a coach ? or a manager or a coach-cum manager or a interim coach or a someone to tour along with the players ?

damn am too confused now and guess its better to shut up and lay low.

cheers !

I remember....one of the BC members here mentioned earlier, India has players like Dravid, Kumble, Ganguly, Tendu....they have all the cricketing knowledge in the world, they don't really need a coach, a manager would be the most appropriate.... and I agree with that statement....
