Default Whatmore interested in India job

Bangladesh boss Dav Whatmore has told BBC Sport he is interested in taking over as India coach from John Wright.

Australians Whatmore, Greg Chappell and Tom Moody are reportedly in the running to replace Wright, who is set to quit after the one-dayers against Pakistan.

Worcestershire boss Moody refused to be drawn on the issue but Whatmore said: "They'd better make up their minds soon - my contract expires on 30 April.

"I'm a professional - of course I'd be interested in talking to the Indians."

Former Australia captain Chappell was shortlisted for the India job before Wright was appointed in 2000 - and he has the backing of captain Sourav Ganguly.

Moody said earlier this year that he would like to be considered for the England coaching position after Duncan Fletcher leaves.

Whatmore, who coached Sri Lanka to World Cup glory in 1996, was handed the Bangladesh job two years ago and oversaw their first ever Test win over Zimbabwe in January.

The former Test batsman revealed that talks over a new Bangladesh contract are at an advanced stage.

But he says he is not sure if he will sign the deal and admitted the challenge of coaching India "would excite me, absolutely".

"The BCB and I are in constant touch, we're not far away over a two-year contract but I don't know if I'll sign. I'll have to wait and see," he added.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has apparently ruled out the prospect of an Indian coach taking over from Wright.

It has been impressed with the progress made under the former New Zealand skipper since he became the country's first foreign coach.

Wright guided the team to the final of the 2003 World Cup and their first overseas Test series win in 11 years in Pakistan last year.

Indeed, the BCCI was hoping he would stay on until the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean, but Wright wants to return home for family reasons.

So DW will stay with BD team if he does not get the India job.

This is not usual to talk about other job openings while you are under contract. I read somewhere that John Wright is trying to get the job of South Africa but he never openly discussed this with some media like our DW.

I think no other coaches can do such except ours!

I really hope Dav continues his excellent work with the BD team. But this guy is always on the look for bigger and more rewarding challenges so a switch to the india team is no way out of the question. He wants to make the india team the best team in the world, a dream he cant achieve with bd currently.

i really hope he doesnt leave BD who can we get to replace him?

I wonder whether this type of talking to media (by Dev) does not violate any code of contract to BCB!?!?:duh:

I hope itís not true.

Unfortunately itís the name of the game.

Coaching India vs. Coaching Bangladesh? In terms of money, fame, challenge, status its a clear choice, we cannot blame Dav if he is offered and accept that job.

However we our BCB board is diligent with their selection process and pay decent money, who knows we can find another future Dav (or even better) in our new coach.

However I must admit, if itís true, it will have a short devastating effect in BD cricket.

i don't believe that whatmore is the kind of guy who'd say what he did to the BBC so openly, unless something real bad has happened very recently between him and the cricket board. after all, we're talking about our sports officials here.

Belated April Fool?
Why isn't there any Source Link ?

The comments made by Whatmore just seems to be too crude to be his own.

u know what, i don't trust Bissho Bikhato Chapa aka BBC completely. this could just be a report from a indian guy who wants dav as their coach.

someone talking so openly to media is very unusual while being in contact with another country.

hmm .. bad news then!
Just today I read in BD newspaper that Whatmore's contract is going to be extended for 2 years(made a Thread about it)... and then this news on the same day!

Let's hope BCB takes straight action to keep Whatmore at any cost !!

There is a 3rd bad news. - after McInnes & Whatmore.

India who has been looking for an allrounder since Kapil Dev retired has offerred Khaled Mahmud Indian Citizenship and a place in their test and one day squad.

Soon they will get their indebted bankrupt man's Abdur Razzak.

Whatmore must be unhappy with the contract. He's just using the India job to unsettle the BCB. He's not ready for the India job. He's only coached 'small' nations (Sri Lanka & B'desh). He needs to coach a middle-sized nations, like a New Zealand, to graduate to the 'Indias' of this world. He eventually wants the Aussie job, when Buchanen retires.

Whether he wants to go or not and I am sure he is capable of it, he would be a stupid not to use that as a contract leverage against BCCB.

Lets hope for the best. Both for our cricket and him.

No chance for Whatmore.
The way Dada is batting, he will pretty sonn retire as a player and will be the next coach of India.

I totally agree with you... I think he is playing with the media to get a leverage in terms of the contract. I don't think he will leave the team which he tried to build from the bottom, unless BCB treats him poorly. (which the people of BCB are definitely capable of)

As the report suggested, Chappell has Ganguly's backing. Being more experienced than Moody, I think Chappell will get the nod. No doubt it will be a great loss for us if Whatmore leaves, but he has the right to choose in the best interest of his career. I'm worried enough already over McInness leaving.

Since Dav has lost interest in coaching Bangladesh, we should not renew the contarct.

Thats one way of looking at it, but there are many other ways which you can't choose to ignore.

He said, he is a professional so offcourse he would be interested. That does not mean that, he will leave. Indians must have approached him during bangladesh tour. That's a fact of life. People switch jobs, he is no exception. I only question the timing.
