Former Committee of Administrators member Ramachandra Guha feels Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan are being subjected to “public humiliation” by the manner in which their appointment as consultants has been put on hold.
“The shameful treatment of Anil Kumble has now been compounded by the cavalier treatment of Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid,” Guha tweeted.
“Kumble, Dravid and Zaheer were true greats of the game who gave it all on the field. They did not deserve this public humiliation,” he added.
His reaction came after the CoA approved the appointment of Ravi Shastri as chief coach. However, the committee did not specify whether Dravid and Zaheer were on board as batting and bowling consultants respectively for overseas tours, as had been claimed by the BCCI.
Guha had resigned from the CoA, lambasting the “superstar culture” in Indian cricket, while also hitting out at former players on ‘conflict of interest’ issues.
