BCCI conclave to take place on June 24 in Dharamsala

New Delhi : The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will hold its first working committee meeting under newly appointed president Anurag Thakur in Dharamsala on June 24.

The BCCI is likely to discuss about the appointment of the Indian team’s head coach in the meeting.

The board, which invited applications for the head coach’s post through its website, had received a total of 57 applications from coaches within India and overseas by the deadline of June 10.

Former Indian skipper Anil Kumble, former team director Ravi Shastri and current selection panel chairman Sandeep Patil are all in the contention for the post vacated by Zimbabwean Duncan Fletcher after India’s 2015 World Cup campaign in Australia.

Besides this, the working committee might also discuss the board’s Technical Committee’s decision to hold upcoming season’s Ranji Trophy games at the neutral venues. (ANI)
