BCCI Apex Council meeting: The Cricket Board of India (BCCI) is going to convene a meeting of the Apex Council on Wednesday (December 21) to discuss Team India and many important issues related to it. According to sources, in this important meeting of BCCI, central contract, selection committee and many other issues can be discussed. During this, there is also a possibility of discussion on having different coaches and captains for different formats. After the semi-final defeat at the hands of England in the T20 World Cup, there is constant discussion about having a different coach in the T20 format.
Significantly, Rohit Sharma, who is 35 years old, is currently the captain of all three formats of the Indian team. But he has been constantly battling with injuries and has been in and out of the team several times due to the workload. In such a situation, all-rounder Hardik Pandya can be made captain in his place by removing him from T20 captaincy under workload management.
News agency ANI quoted sources as saying that there is a possibility that a decision on split coaching may be taken in this meeting. Under this, a new coach can be appointed for T20, keeping Rahul Dravid limited to only Test and ODI coaching. The BCCI is also unhappy with the team’s support staff, especially fielding coach T Dileep and physio and is likely to sack them. However, in this meeting, there is little possibility of review of Team India’s recent performance mainly due to T20 World Cup, New Zealand tour and defeat in ODI series against Bangladesh.
In this meeting of BCCI, a decision can also be taken on the inclusion of star T20 batsman Suryakumar Yadav in the central contract. At the same time, there is also a possibility of discussion on the appointment of new selection committee and selectors. Not only this, it is also possible to discuss the problem of frequent injuries of players. In this important meeting, there is also a possibility of discussion regarding organizing the Pink Ball Test between India and Australia in Ahmedabad during the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
