On the face of it seems a good move... both Dravid and Zaheer are quality guys...

India have not played a top team overseas in Tests for quite a while... and will not until they play South Africa at the end of the year... SL is hardly quality these days...

Also, not clear if it is only for overseas... or if Bangar and B. Arun are now gone...

Bangar stays, Arun gone....


I'm not sure if this trio is even a good committee....


Arun was a qualified coach and has been the head of NCA bowling departments for eons now....

Seems to be some horse trading here....

Sachin wanted his man Shastri, so Arun had to go for Zaheer, to placate Dada....

Dravid also might have been a power play....


Ideally I'd like these guys:
Shastri - Manager/Schmoozer

Technical Staff
1. R Dravid - batting coach
2. Zaheer - seam coach
3. S. Sriram/Sairaj Bahatule(both have been coaching domestic sides/consultants) - spin coach
4. Robin Singh - fielding coach(there hasn't been a more athletic fielder in Indian history, even given Ravindra Jadeja), also has been MI coach for a past 5-6 years...

Bangar seems to have done a nice job, so he can probably be around...



24 needed with a bunny coming in at 11? No problem!

Shastri throws his weight behind B Arun. He may be back.

Hahaha... to spite Dada Shastri will cut his own nose... Zakky is a quality guy, especially as related to seam/swing bowling overseas...he would be most useful...

Now neither Dravid nor Zaheer get appointment letters.
I know that it is happening at the behest of Shastri, but is he doing it spite Dada?

Well now if India don't do well the blame will fall squarely on Shastri and Kohli...NO EXCUSES any more...
