“We spoke to Mr Shastri about getting Mr Khan and Mr Dravid on board in these capacities, and he readily agreed to the idea of having them in the set-up so that it would benefit the team and Indian cricket as a whole in time to come. It was only after getting Mr Shastri’s consent that we also recommended Mr Khan and Mr Dravid, in their respective capacities,” the letter claimed. Also Read - Virat Kohli-Sourav Ganguly at War?

The CAC comprising of Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, and VVS Laxman remained Rai of an email where he had given them a free hand to  pick up the head coach of the Indian cricket team and sidekicks who could take India to new height.

The CAC began the letter with anguish as they said that Rai has given them free hand to pick up coach, batting and bowling consultants who could help India to become a world beater. But, Rai didn’t make any comment in the wake of the recent development that Dravid and Zaheer were forced upon Shastri.

The CAC made it clear that the appointments of Dravid and Zaheer were done in consultation with Shastri.

They clearly mentioned that they are not happy with the development.

“It has both pained and disappointed us, therefore, to see the light in which the CAC has been portrayed in various sections of the media,” the letter read.

They also wrote the Rai that to clear the air he should speak in public.

“It is our desire that you come public about the transparency of the process of identifying the next head coach so that the falsehoods are put to bed.”

The CAC has selected Shastri as head coach while kept Dravid as overseas batting coach and Zaheer Khan as bowling coach. As the coaches and sidekicks were announced there was a perception that Dravid and Zaheer were picked up create pressure on Shastri. In the wake of the development, BCCI didn’t ink the deal with the coaching staffs.
