Default Indian coach hunt takes a twist

BCCI will decide today the 4th of june who will be their next coach. Since Dav Whatmore's departure from BD everyone was almost certain it would be him but recent news will suggest he has a competition.

I have unconfirmed news that Indian officials are re-evluating Whatmore after that disastrous decision to bowl first against India in the Mirpur test.

Dang!! Who is the other guy!! I don't believe Indian media. May be the other guy is Watmore. They are just hiding and making it look like a drama serial. Just the music is missing. Publicity (good or bad) would benefit in the long run for BCCI.

wooh. I knew this will happen. Indians really didnt seem that interested with whatmore after the series. It seems natural that they back out. Sad, but part of life.

The toss decision in the 2nd Test made the difference for Whatmore.

The Cricinfo article has now been updated with this :

"We have not been able to reach the second person so far but we hope to do it soon," Srinivasan said. "We had made contact with Whatmore before. By implication you can say that Whatmore is out of contention," he added.

So now it's OFFICIAL...Whatmore is no longer in the running for Indian Coach's job.

The article says:

Quote:
Arjuna Ranatunga, whose name has been doing the rounds, has emerged as the other strong contender.

Things are not looking good on the other side of the border too.

Pakistan Board Not Tempted To Offer Dav Whatmore Coaching Job If BCCI Rejects His Application

PCB not keen on Whatmore

I guess pakistan isnt all that bad for whatmore... I mean if you get past all the religious fanaticism, lack of descipline and match fixing, they are a pretty damn good talented team who has potential to beat any team on their day.

here's a quote from the daily star on monday (the star archive for june 4 is off line at the moment, so no link): -

from Dav in line for India

PTI, Bangalore

"Gavaskar has been severe in his indirect criticism of the Australian in his syndicated column, referring to the way in which Bangladesh did not make an effort to chase the target set by India in the opening Test in Chittagong and for opting to field after winning the toss in the second and final Test at Mirpur."
