Circus or a red herring?
Just when everyone thought that Dav Whatmore was a shoo-in
for the job of India's next coach, the BCCI dropped a couple of bombshells.
Yesterday, it clarified that Whatmore was out and that Graham Ford and an anonymous
were the ones left standing. Today, the identity of the anonymous one was revealed - John Emburey
Firstly, although it'd be useful to know the basis on which Whatmore was ruled out, it is surely too much to expect transparency
from the BCCI. Secondly, now that John Emburey has been identified as a contender, it seems like he wasn't too successful when he coached Northamptonshire or Middlesex. It is interesting to note that India's last coach
was not exactly too successful
when he coached in domestic cricket.
If the BCCI (or the players, for that matter) has seen something in Embers that the ECB hasn't (I don't recollect him being anywhere in the reckoning after Duncan Fletcher quit
), we sure would love to know what Emburey 'brings to the table'.
