Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) vice president Dr Vimal Soni will replace Chetan Chauhan as the Indian team's manager at the conclusion of the ongoing four-Test series in Australia.
"Dr Vimal Soni will be the manager for the ODI tri-series for which the Indian team will be chosen after the conclusion of the third Test against Australia (to be held at Perth from January 16-20, 2008)," said BCCI's Chief Administrative Manager Ratnakar Shetty in Mumbai on Saturday.
"He will replace Chetan Chauhan. Both these appointments were done at the BCCI's Working Committee when it met in Mumbai (on December 16). Chauhan will return after the end of the Test series," Shetty added. The Test rubber is scheduled to end on January 28 with the fourth Test at Adelaide.
The tri-series features India, Sri Lanka and hosts Australia and is set to start on February 3 and conclude on March 7. India are also slated to play a one-off T20 international against the hosts on February 1 at Melbourne before the triangular ODI series in Brisbane.
