India captain Virat Kohli will have ‘absolutely no say’ in the selection process of the next Indian cricket team head coach. The entire selection process will be overseen by a three-member steering committee headed by former India World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev, according to a senior BCCI official. According to reports, the decision was taken keeping Anil Kumble’s tenure in mind, where he and captain Kohli had a fall out before the former decided to step down and Kohli voted for Ravi Shastri’s appointment, reports Hindustantimes.

BCCI invited applications for the post of India’s head coach after Ravi Shastri’s tenure ended after the ICC World Cup 2019, where India were knocked out from the semi-final after losing to New Zealand by 18 runs. Shastri along with Sanjay Bangar and Bharat have been given an extension till the West Indies tour, which is slated to begin from August 3.
