India are planning for new Coach and BCCI has few option. 1. John Wright - Former Indian coach under whom Indian team reached the final in 2003 world cup. 2. Whatmore - present coach of bangladesh who has improved the bangladesh team in all department and had helped srilankan team in winning the 1996 world cup. 3. Indian Coach(Sandeep Patil) - Some Indian coach who knows in and out of Indian team and can improve on the weekpoint of the team. Whom would you like to go with....

First of lot I would like to say that that Indian team is back in action and right now it doesn't matter who the opposition is...Getting momentum and confidence back is the need of an hour. And I suppose Ravi Shastri has done a great job preparing the guys within 5 days of training session. But I don't know how well he can do to if he was given a charge for the long run. So I guess the right person should be Dave Whatmore at the moment.He is experienced, and had gone through such circumstances when the morale of the team was absolutly low.

Whoever the next Indian coach is, he should be in the likes of John Wright. He should be defensive when dealing with the players. India cannot take coaches of the likes of Greg Chappell. A aggressive coach would in no way come to terms with the Indian senior players. And that would result in unnecessary speculation of spats between the coach and the players. While John Wright was the coach of the Indian team, there was no big difference of opinions between the coach and the players or atleast that sort of thing didn't come out to the media. But when Greg was the coach, at a lot of stages, he was blamed and so were the players. The only reason why it happened because he was a strong coach. He had his own words to say to players and didn't care about the reputation of the players. It will seem fair enough if could do that in Australia, where even if you are a star in Australian cricket, you would be dropped if the performance isnt good enough. But that will not seem to happen in a country like India which is built entirely on emotions.

I feel according to reports in new channels that BCCI has already decided that Whatmore will be the next coach of indian team for one year. Whatmore has very good credentials as he had success with sri lankan and bangladesh teams. But india will be a challenging assigenment for him after world cup debacle. I feel he is treet smart and more hands on and gets on better with players so hopefully that should help team India. let's hope for the best. :)
