With cricket as India’s most promising game which parallelly garners a huge market, proper cautions are must when taking any step in altering the players or head coach.
Now, coming to the details, the eleven players on the field might be in the minds of every cricket buff, they might grab huge attention when the game is on and even more when the match is in between India and Australia or India vs Pakistan. But what matters most and what shows huge impact is the kind of coach TeamIndia has. The edges up to which the coach can bring his National team when the match is very important or the rivals are quite tough.
Earlier in between April and June 2016, there was a cold war in between former popular Indian cricketers. The veteran players then competed for the seat of Team India’s head coach. Though many legendaries like Ravi Shastri, Sunil Gavaskar, and others applied, the position was granted to the former ace bowler Anil Kumble. The same might happen again, as Anil Kumble now officially stepped down from the designation.
In a bid, to take new steps, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) along with the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) met to decide Kumble’s future as the head coach, however, the latter denied it.
Now, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag, who played for India under Kumble’s captaincy, was of an opinion that Kumble’s successor will have a tough job filling his boots. Sehwag is one of the applicants who has applied for the head coach’s job. Going into the details, Sehwag was quoted:
“I never played under him as a coach but he supported me as a senior player in my playing days. He was my senior, my captain and helped me come. I don’t know him as a coach but his performances in last one year as a coach, it will be a difficult job for his successor to replicate his success. It will be difficult for anyone to fit into his boots.”
“I cannot comment on his coaching style but as a player or captain, no one else can perform better than him,” concluded Sehwag.
