No Coach Please

Do India really need a coach? The answer in definately no because India has always performed well in the recent times without a coach.In this decade Indian Team has worked under three Coaches.Anushman Geakwad,John wright and Greg Chappell.With Gaekwad the team was little bit ok but was full of senior players under Azhar's captaincy.There is no major victory to say in specific for the Indian Team under his period.1996 Wc semifinals and Titan Cup victories under Sachins Captiancy can be highlighted here.
Next comes John Wright under whom India was more sucessfull than ever to speak.Dada's Captaincy was aggressive and quite fascinating when compared to prevoius skippers.Though ganguly did not win major tournaments he took india to 22 finals and won only one which is the darker part of his captaincy.
Greg chappell and Dravid is the next in the driver seat.Greg chappell one of the most Successfull captain for Australia and also was one of the best bastmen of his times came to coach india,his australian stratergies were taken as politics rather than as a tactics.Yuvaraj who was performing worst was given a warning that he would be chucked out if he continues the same..Then Yuvraj was the man of the series for pakistan tour and still flying now.Ganguly was chucked out of the team which broke many oppostion to chappell from politics and West Bengal people were involved in so many protestions against him.Finally Chappell resigned.

With the young blood alone India won the T20 world cup with no senior players or coach to guide the players.Though we cannot totally isolate the seniors still there is no need for a coach to do this job.The players are not small kids for the coach to teach them how to bowl and bat,everybody is in international standard.When a person is not able to cooperate with a board then how will he coach the team?.This is for Kirsten.
