    Dean Jones and Steve Waugh also in the running to replace John Wright

    Given that there is hardly any cricket being played, with a few exceptions, it is but natural that most of the action is off the field. So a few days after Wright talks about how it was to coach India, there're a couple of Aussie hats which have been thrown in the ring. Steve Waugh and Dean Jones are the newest entrants to the "I want to coach India" club.

    While Steve Waugh has been linked up with Sri Lanka, having coached the ICC XI against the Asian XI at Melbourne, Dean Jones is a total newcomer. That is not a problem, Deano said, even as he proudly displayed all his disembarkation cards and multiple entry visas stamped at Mumbai and Chennai to indicate how much in love he is with India.

    The BCCI is very much at peace with itself. It reckons that with India's next international assignment more than four months away, it can afford to take its own sweet time. Bishen Singh Bedi is fuming, and rightly so. The board continues with its slog overs mentality.

    Oh yes, PLEASE appoint Deano as coach of India.

    Because when Deano is lynched by millions of Indian cricket fans soon after it will finally shut the idiot up...
