Sources have stated that the BCCI on Sunday rubbished media reports that the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) wants to be suitably remunerated for picking the Indian team's head coach, terming them "baseless and malicious". Reports in a section of the media claimed that the CAC comprising Indian cricket legends Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman want to be paid for picking the national coach.
Cricket Board CEO Rahul Johri said in a release. "BCCI wishes to clarify that there has been no such claim and the story carried by the newspaper is totally baseless and devoid of facts". As per reports, the three former cricketers, who held their first meeting after the India-Sri Lanka Champions Trophy game in London on Thursday, informed Johri that they "don't want their services to be honorary".
Meanwhile BCCI stated, "The contents of this article are malicious
and such attempts to dilute and misrepresent the continued contribution of
these former legends of Indian cricket are totally incorrect and unfounded and
BCCI wishes to reiterate the fact that the guidance and recommendations of the
CAC are invaluable for the betterment of Indian cricket and we urge the
publication to withdraw the said article and make suitable amends."
Moreover the CAC was formed by late BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya, giving a say to the game's greats in cricketing matters. Anil Kumble's term as head coach ends with the Champions Trophy, and the Board had last month invited applications from interested candidates.
