The holy trinity of Sachin Tendulkar ,sourabh Gauguly and VVS Laxman will form a committee to pick Team Indias next head coach . Farmer BCCI secretary and cricketer Sanjay jagdale will be the chief coordinator of this panel.
Although BCCI sources said "it's the normal agenda" (about ratification of decisions taken by various sub committees), the all-powerful panel is expected to rubber stamp the identification of a new coach less than a fortnight before the Indian squad leaves for the West Indies.
The Board has invited applications for the head coach's post through its website and has received 57 applications, including those of former India captain Anil Kumble, former team director Ravi Shastri and current selection panel chairman Sandeep Patil.
The applications are to be gone through and a shorter list to be prepared before the BCCI will zero-in on their man for occupying the hot seat which was vacated by Zimbabwean Duncan Fletcher after India's tour of England in 2014.
Apart from the naming of the head coach, the Working Committee also has to ratify the decisions taken by the Board's Technical Committee, including holding of Ranji Trophy games in the upcoming season at neutral venues.
