India to have a new coach

The Indian Cricket Team will have a new coach post the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 as Board of Control for Cricket in India [BCCI] is not in favour of renewing current coach Duncan Fletcher's contract. Fletcher has been appointed as the main coach in 2011 after Gary Kristen stepping down from the role. Under his guidance, Indian team cliched the 2013 Champions Trophy but India's Test record hit a rock bottom especially in overseas.

According to the reports, BCCI is consulting senior players and other overseas players for the coach role. In 2013, India went from leading the series to a 3-1 humiliating defeat against England and this led to a huge outrage. BCCI then appointed former cricketer Ravi Shastri as the Director of the Indian Team.

Some time back, reports said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has reportedly suggested Australian cricketer Micheal Hussey's name for the coach role but BCCI has denied to claim it. So ICC World Cup will be last assignment for Duncan Fletcher.

However, it may the Indian coach will get his pockets full.
