Future of India's coach will be decided at Working Committee meeting: Sanjay Patel

New Delhi: The future of India's bowling coach Joe Dawes and fielding consultant Trevor Penny will be decided at the all-important Working Committee meeting of the BCCI scheduled in Chennai on September 26.

While the fate of annual AGM will be one of the primary agendas but the fate of the Australian bowling coach and Zimbabwean fielding coach will also be decided at the same meeting.

"Yes, the working committee will discuss about the appointments of the support staff. Dawes' and Penny's case will also come up for discussion," BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel told PTI on Wednesday.

While Patel refused to divulge what lay in store for the duo, who were sent on leave after the disastrous Test series ended, it has been learnt that BCCI top brass are working on the exit clause of the foreign duo as the trio of Sanjay Bangar, R Sridhar and Bharat Arun are set to get long-term contracts.

"The BCCI is very happy with the work put in by the new group of support staff in a such short time before the ODI series against England started. Obviously, the Indian trio deserve a long run and their chances at this point looks very bright," a well-placed source told the PTI.

The Working Committee of the BCCI will also discuss the report of Team Director Ravi Shastri and a suppose to unanimous decision is on cards that former India all-rounder will be approached by the board to continue at the helm till the World Cup. However Shastri hasn't said anything on whether he would like to continue in that position considering his busy schedule and media commitments.
