Ravi Shastri speaks as Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli looks on during a news conference

The incumbent India coach had stirred a controversy when he'd expressed his desire to pick the support staff of his choice, as it was viewed in contravention to the BCCI's decision of appointing Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan as batting consultant (overseas tours) and bowling coach, respectively.

Jason Gillespie, former Australian cricketer, has revealed he thought long and hard about applying for Indian cricket team's coaching job, which was eventually assigned to Ravi Shastri.

"Let me put it like this".

The special committee - comprising acting BCCI president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary, CEO Rahul Johri and Committee of Administrators member Diana Edulji - will meet Shastri at BCCI headquarters in Mumbai to decide the support staff of the India team. "You have to work with people with whom you have an understanding and who you think can execute", Singh told mid-day. Your contribution to Indian cricket is great and we're all so familiar with you.

Singh, the 53-year-old former all-rounder said that if he was the coach of the side, he would prefer to have support staff he's 'comfortable with'.

As far as Arun is concerned, the CoA has made it clear that he and other support staff will have to resolve all conflict-of-interest issues before assuming charge. Robin also didn't want to comment on the Virat Kohli-Anil Kumble showdown stating that he wasn't aware of what was going on.

"Other days where I wasn't so sure".

If his appointment is finalised, Arun's first assignment during his second stint as India bowling coach will be the tour of Sri Lanka which begins on July 26.

As per the TOI, this is what Kohli told Sehwag, "Paaji, I have a lot of respect for you for what you can bring to the table but you have to understand that there is a professional set-up in place, therefore this cannot happen". The official said that the special committee will also consider the existing contract of Zaheer, who has been part of Delhi Dardevils in the IPL for the last few years.
