Sachin, Sourav, Laxman did not ask for money to select coach: BCCI

Anil Kumble's coaching tenure comes to an end with the Champions Trophy

Anil Kumble's coaching tenure comes to an end with the Champions Trophy

Reports on Wednesday indicated that the BCCI would announce a coach for the side before the conclusion of the Champions Trophy.

For the legendary trio, it was convenient to ask for more time as all three are against removal of Kumble as he has had tremendous success as coach winning 12 out of 17 matches since he took over in July previous year.

Sachin, Laxman and Ganguly are a part of CAC that is working on the process of selecting the head coach of Indian Cricket team from a pool of shortlisted applicants. The decision will now be ratified in a June 26 Special General Meeting.

"The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of the BCCI met today and discussed the process with regard to the selection of the head coach of the Indian team and it was decided by the CAC to revert to the BCCI, at an appropriate time", the statement read.

He also added, "Whenever it is Anil Kumble retained or anyone else roped in, whoever gets the job will be given contract till 2019 world cup". The choice was taken after a meeting of CAC individuals during India's match against Sri Lanka at The Oval on Thursday. Any new coach to replace Kumble will also be aware that the price of disagreement with the Indian captain will be a heavy one. However, Kohli had criticised the media while denying there was any truth to them.

The newspaper reported that Johri is likely to pass on the message of the trio to the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators, which will have to take the final call on this. BCCI's clarification has officially placed the news piece in a false position. With Ganguly and Laxman in the United Kingdom on broadcast assignments and Tendulkar also present, much of the CAC's deliberating will take place in the country.

According to insiders, the CAC already seems to have told the BCCI that Kumble is their choice. The BCCI invited applications for coach's post and even a section of officials, who are anti-Kumble convinced Virender Sehwag to apply for the post.

CAC had first raised the demand for remuneration in 2015, within months of the creation of the panel by late Former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya.

"There are disagreements in all teams but things shouldn't be blown out of proportion. It's a short tour so there shouldn't be any problems", said a top source.
