I actually met him a few weeks back..he seems like an amazing person. Plus he has the past record of guiding us to a WC win like you said. I guess it depends if he's willing to take on the offer too. I can imagine he may be a little hesitant as it would risk ending his career on a high like he did with the CWC. :\

I absolutely cannot stand his attitude and over confidence. That's NOT what the Indian team needs. I don't think there will ever be anyone quite as good as Gary Kirsten. :(

I disagree.  He's been doing a fantastic job mentoring the RR side, and had already led them to one season's victory.  If he weren't still playing, I'd say he'd make a great coach.

As Pria4ever pointed out, even Stephen Fleming is being considered.  I'd certainly prefer him to Duncan Fletcher.  I certainly prefer India to have a foreign coach, as India has been successful w/ both John Wright and Gary Kirsten, and the only loser was Greg Chappell.

No Kapil Dev or any other Indian Coach Please .. We have tries it before and saw the Results .. Kapil Dev won't be appointed by BCCI as far as I think .. Moreover, He is sort of emotional Person as I know .. I don't want anyone to put emotions ahead ethics as a Coach of team India .. Moreover, he coached team India before if You guys don't knowSmile It was in 1999 ... Except, first series win against New Zealand I reckon, We lost to Australia and SA  badly.... So yeah, If any of you remember, under what category you will put his reactions while team India Playing .. Sorry to use this word but literly crying....  I would have pasted evidence of his coaching records if I were at home.. Anyone can search on Goggle and See .. So Please don't argue on Kapil dev's name Smile

Not Ducan Fletcher he is too defensive in his tactics and Shane Warne said no. I have mixed opinion on Andy Flower, although he has been successful for England, I don't see him succeeding for India. Plus he didn't have any joy on his face when England won the Ashes. 

Cricket is a massive sport in India and it attracts a lot of media coverage so we don't want someone like Greg Chappel who is always seeking for media attention. I say Stephen Fleming. He has done incredibly well for Chennia Superkings and he is sort of a character who would work behind the scenes just like Gary.

But alas, its on BCCI.

Greg Chappell is out of the question - he was a disaster as South Australia's coach, and it was a pity that the BCCI preferred him to Tom Moody @ the behest of none other than Dada Thumbs Down

I agree w/ Bhinder on Kapil Dev: in the run-up to the world cup, I thought it was laughable when I saw Kapil's critique on Dhoni's captaincy.  Kapil was one of the most disastrous captains that India ever had, whereas Dhoni is #1, bar none, not even Dada.  At any rate, given Kapil's break from the BCCI over ICL, I doubt they have anything to do w/ him.  If India has to have an Indian coach, go for Sandeep Patil, who did a good job w/ Kenya.

I'd prefer Fleming or someone who's retired since Gary Kirsten - maybe a Hayden or Muraltharan.
