Ravi Shastri’s appointment approved but no decision on Zaheer Dravid

CoA chief Vinod Rai on Saturday informed that Shastri is presently out of the country and once he is back, the four-member committee will have a meeting with him.

To fix the remuneration of Shastri and members of the support staff, the CoA has formed a panel including acting Board President C.K. Khanna, acting Board secretary Amitabh Choudhary, Rahul Johri and Diana Edulji.

The Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) made Ravi Shastri's appointment official while no decision was taken on the appointments of Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid.

"The committee will first meet on Tuesday to look into the appointments of the assistant coaches before taking a final call on their salaries and contracts."If the committee fails to decide on Tuesday, it will once again meet on Saturday (July 22) to discuss the matter".

Uh-Oh! Weed Shortage in Nevada Prompts 'State of Emergency' from Governor
Nevada voted in favour of legalising recreational use of marijuana in November, following similar moves in several other states. In California, third-party distribution was mandatory under a medical-marijuana regulation bill signed by Gov.

Meanwhile, the CoA has approved the appointment of Shastri as India's new head coach. So far, no contracts have been given to Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid.

"We spoke to Mr Shastri about getting Mr Khan and Mr Dravid on board in these capacities, and he readily agreed to the idea of having them in the set-up so that it could benefit the team and Indian cricket as a whole in time to come", the CAC wrote in its letter.

Before that, on Tuesday, a BCCI press advisory had described Zaheer as "the Bowling Consultant" and Dravid as "the Overseas Batting Consultant (Test cricket)". However, the committee did not implicitly specify whether Dravid and Khan were on board as consultants for specific overseas tours, as had been claimed by the BCCI.

As per reports, Shastri wants Bharath Arun to join the team as a full-time bowling coach. All three had been hand-picked by Shastri, when he became the team director in August 2014. "They have not been appointed", Rai told reporters here. A day after the CAC expressed hurt at allegations that the trio had foisted Zaheer and Dravid upon the team, TOI understands CAC and COA have reached an understanding over offering Zaheer a contract. Those in the know say the uncertainty over the bowling coach/consultant is a carry-over effect of last year's coach selection episode where Ganguly is said to have played a big role in Kumble replacing Shastri.
