Former Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Ramachandra Guha has voiced his opinion on the mystery surrounded over Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan appointment as batting and bowling consultants respectively. Guha, who had sensationally resigned from the Supreme Court-appointed panel in June, lamented the manner in which the coaching saga was handled by all parties involved. The noted historian, in a series of tweets, said that Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan were “true greats” of the game and “did not deserve this public humiliation”.
The three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, had earlier this month named Ravi Shastri as head coach while Dravid and Zaheer were appointed batting and bowling consultants, respectively, for specific overseas tours.
However, the CoA on Saturday clarified that Zaheer and Dravid were mere recommendations.
