New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to appoint professional managers for the Indian team from now on and it is also being reported that the board will send out an advertisement soon, which will state the entire process.

According to a BCCI senior official, the board wishes to get rid of this formula of pleasing members of state associations who are sent for the tours as managers with the team.

Meanwhile, it is also being reported that the Committee of Administrators (CoA) is not happy with the practice of existing BCCI officials touring and giving reports.

This development comes after the recent controversy surrounding Anil Kumble’s exit wherein it was reported that the team manager, in his report of the Champions Trophy, made no mention of the rift between the former coach and skipper Virat Kohli.

The BCCI had specifically instructed administrative manager Kapil Malhotra to report any incident of discord between Kohli and Kumble when the team was in England.

"Kapil Malhotra has submitted his report. At least there is nothing in the report which suggests that skipper Virat Kohli was ever rude to the coach or mention of any incident which could be termed as a breach of discipline," a BCCI source was quoted as saying earlier.

However, Kumble did mention in his resignation that the BCCI told him that Kohli was not happy with his “style of coaching”.
