However, on Saturday, the chairman of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) - appointed by the Supreme Court to oversee the day-to-day operations of the BCCI until such time a new constitution is adopted - Vinod Rai, nullified those appointments by stating that Dravid and Khan's names were mere recommendations made by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) - tasked by the BCCI to pick the head coach, amongst other responsibilities - to the CoA.

Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag, who was one of the frontrunners for the position of Team India coach, nearly won the job, but for a proposal to bring along with him a team of support staff, it has been reported.

Just as the news of Kohli-Kumble rift was doing the rounds before Kumble broke the ice 0n Twitter, in the same way, sources have implied that Ravi Shastri is expected to get 7 crores per year. Kohli, reportedly, didn't have any issues with Sehwag applying for the job. If the CoA does grant Shastri his wish, it will be a clear snub to the CAC, particularly to Ganguly. The tour, however, got cancelled as the Australian cricketers refused to travel in wake of Cricket Australia (CA) and Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) failing to arrive at a solution regarding the payment dispute. However, the former Tamil Nadu pacer seems to be ready to take up the role and join Shastri's camp once again.

"Shastri too has said that he will be more than happy to have the likes of Zaheer come over and share his inputs with the boys as per requirement. Thus, this arrangement", the BCCI official said.

During the meeting, the committee accepted Ravi Shastri as Indian coach but denied to reveal any decision on appointing Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan as the overseas batting consultant and bowling coach respectively. The former all-rounder was eventually named the head coach for a period of two years running till the end of the ICC World Cup 2019. We have set up a committee and they will speak to the CAC, communicate with them after talking to Shastri.

Arun was India's bowling coach from 2014 to 2016 and formed a strong partnership with Shastri when he was the team director. Notably, the intra-state Twenty20 tournament will be held between July 22 and August 20.
