Australian Justin Langer front runner for Team India’s head coach’s job
After parting ways with Zimbabwean Duncan Fletcher, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) may now hand over Team India’s coach responsibilities to Australian Justin Langer.
After Fletcher’s contract got over, there were rumours that the Board could zero in on some Indian coach, and even BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya had indicated that they would prefer an Indian over a foreign coach. But going by Langer’s impressive track record as a coach, the BCCI officials are now keen on roping him as the new coach. Interestingly, the former Australian batsman is also amongst top contenders for England coach’s job.
The sources, however, indicated that the a final decision on the head coach will only be taken before the tour to Sri Lanka. For the moment, Indian team will travel to Bangladesh under the supervision of Team Director Ravi Shastri.
