India captain Virat Kohli will have ‘absolutely no say’ in the selection process of the next Indian cricket team head coach. The entire selection process will be overseen by a three-member steering committee headed by former India World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev, according to a senior BCCI official. According to reports, the decision was taken keeping Anil Kumble’s tenure in mind, where he and captain Kohli had a fall out before the former decided to step down and Kohli voted for Ravi Shastri’s appointment.

BCCI invited applications for the post of India’s head coach after Ravi Shastri’s tenure ended after the ICC World Cup 2019, where India was knocked out from the semi-final after losing to New Zealand by 18 runs. Shastri along with Sanjay Bangar and Bharat have been given an extension till the West Indies tour, which is slated to begin from August 3, it is unlikely that all three of them will continue to hold their positions after the tour. All three, however, automatically enter the selection process but will still have to apply.

“Last time, the captain (Kohli) had expressed his difficulty, or the team’s difficulty, with former coach Anil Kumble. In the new selection process, he will have absolutely no say with regards to who becomes the coach. This time, we have Kapil Dev in the coach selection committee, and he will not listen to him (Kohli),” a BCCI official told the sources.

The trio of Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad, and Shantha Rangaswamy will go ahead with the coach selection process and the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators will give its approval for the same, no member of the current India squad will be consulted, assured the official in the report.
