The Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI) might soon appoint a manager for the Indian cricket team. Acting president C.K.Khanna stated that the announcement will be made soon.

After the appointment of Ravi Shastri as the coach of the Men’s cricket team, the Indian team has been looking for a new manager as well.

Speaking to ANI, Khanna said, “We have shortlisted thirteen names for now. We’ll interview them on Tuesday afternoon.”

Speaking on the Women’s cricket team and their ICC Women World Cup final with England on Sunday, he said, “We are confident that the Indian team will come back with the trophy.”

He also added that the Indian board had unanimously decided to give fifty-lakh to each player and in the squad and twenty-five lakh to the coaching staff.

The appointment of Shastri as the coach of the Indian cricket team came with plenty of drama and controversy. He was confirmed as India head coach after a 48-hour long drama. The confirmation was surprising as BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary had rubbished reports that claimed Shastri had been appointed coach. The confusion came a day after Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) member and former captain Sourav Ganguly had sought more time to decide on the issue
