The BCCI denied reports of Ravi Shastri being named as the head coach of Team India, and said the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) was still on the job.
Almost everyone from the mainstream media had reported that former India allrounder Shastri had been appointed as head coach until the end of the 2019 ICC World Cup.
"No decision has been made on appointment of new coach. The CAC is still deliberating over it," BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary said while speaking to the media.
"There is no truth in what has been running," he further added. Five candidates were interviewed for the role by the CAC.
Ganguly and VVS Laxman were at the Wankhede Stadium while Sachin Tendulkar joined them via video conference from the UK. The five candidates were Ravi Shastri, Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus and Lalchand Rajput.
