The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) secretary, Jay Shah, disclosed on Wednesday that the BCCI will shortly publish a job advertisement for the head coach of the Indian cricket team.

The United States and the West Indies will host the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup, which India will compete in beginning on June 1st. India’s last appearance in an ICC competition took place in the 2023 ODI World Cup, where they lost to Australia in the championship match and came in second overall.

Since the T20 World Cup takes place in June, it is reasonable to assume that Rahul Dravid, the team’s current head coach, will be in charge of the squad.

In an interview with the media, Jay Shah disclosed certain information regarding his bid to become India’s head coach and suggested that the coach might be either Indian or foreign.

“Rahul’s tenure is only up to June. So if he wants to apply, he is free to do so. We cannot determine whether the new coach will be Indian or foreign. It will be up to the CAC, and we are a global body,” Shah said.

“That decision will also be made by the CAC. There are many all-format players, like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Rishabh Pant, among others. Moreover, there is no precedent for such a situation in India,” Shah added.

Impact player was a test case, said Jay Shah

The Indian Premier League (IPL) Impact Player rule’s continuation is up for debate, according to Jay Shah, secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI), who says captains and coaches would be consulted before a decision is made. But he made sure to emphasize the importance of the provision, which permits an IPL team to include two more Indian players in its starting lineup.

“Impact Player was a test case. Two new Indian players are getting a chance in the IPL,” he stressed when it was pointed out that the rule might not favor all-rounders. “We will discuss with the stakeholders—franchise and broadcasters – before deciding on the continuation of the Impact Player. It’s not permanent, but no one has provided feedback against the rule,” he said.

He disclosed that the finalization of the retention regulations and the meeting with the franchises would take place shortly. He further emphasized that, in contrast to recent statements made by an official from Cricket Victoria, a Cricket Australia affiliate, in Mumbai, there have been no talks on bringing back the Champions League Twenty20 competition.
