BCCI and Indian cricket it seems likes foreigners . Just when there was talk or buzz about a possible Indian coach for Team India comes another bouncer. Another foreigner has suddenly arrived on the scene to coach Team India after John Wright, Greg Chappell, Gary Kirsten and out- going Duncan Fletcher. And this time it is another Aussie, former opener Justin Langer
According to media reports , the former Australia opener Justin Langer has suddenly cropped up as one of the possible candidates for Indian cricket team’s chief coach’s job, a position that is lying vacant after Zimbabwean Duncan Fletcher completed his tenure at the end of the World Cup. Langer, who has earlier been a batting consultant with Australian national team, has been the chief coach of his home state Western Australia in Sheffield Shield and ‘Big Bash’. The 44-year-old, who scored 7696 runs in 105 Tests with 23 hundreds, is known to be shrewd tactician.
It has also been learnt from media reports that there could be a meeting next week after IPL final where president Jagmohan Dalmiya and secretary Anurag Thakur will be meeting to decide on the roadmap for the national coach’s selection.
