Who will be India's New Cricket Coach?

Thoughts on India's New Cricket Coach.

Former Indian cricket captain and coach Ajit Wadekar says India doesn't have to look for foreign coaches when players of the stature of Sunny Gavaskar and Kapil Dev are there to take on the mantle of coaching the Indian cricket team.

The names of Australians, Greg Chappell and Tom Moody are being considered for coaching India. I feel Ravi Shastri will be a good choice if he decides to do coaching instead of commentating. Ravi Shastri played defensive cricket, but he was an aggressive thinking captain in whatever opportunities he got to captain India and he captained Bombay with distinction.

Sunil Gavaskar will be a defensive coach. He always played for a draw (not by compulsion, but that was the way test cricket was played in the early 80s). Kapil Dev has already got a chance. Greg Chappell seems to be a good choice and will bring Australia's discipline and coaching methodologies that will make India an aggressive and disciplined team while retaining its sublime touch.

What do you think?
I think, Greg Chappell or Ravi Shastri if he says yes (if the contract is lucrative enough for him).

In love, life, and sport if you play for a draw you never win.
