Sports News, June 29:- The interest in Indian cricket post the Champions Trophy has been more off the field, than on it. Right after Anil Kumble’s departure as India’s head coach, several names have floated up as his potential replacements for the coveted job.
The latest to join the race is Kumble’s former India and Karnataka teammate, Venkatesh Prasad, who has served as the Indian bowling coach before.
Venkatesh Prasad, a veteran of 33 Tests and 162 ODIs in a career that started in 1996, will finish off his tenure as India’s junior chief selector later this month. Prasad will be joining the likes of Ravi Shastri, Virender Sehwag and Lalchand Rajput to make the competition even more intense.
