With India job in sight Bharat Arun joins TNPL side

Virat Kohli will lead the Indian team in all three formats in Sri Lanka

Gillespie is yet to coach an worldwide team after having built up an impressive resume by taking county team Yorkshire to consecutive County Championships titles and also Big Bash League side Adelaide Strikers.

Sehwag was among the five candidates that were running for the job along with Ravi Shastri, Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput and Richard Pybus.

Gillespie is now in interim charge of Papua New Guinea, after a planned tour of South Africa at the helm of Australia A was cancelled due to an ongoing pay dispute.

Zaheer was reportedly not ready to take on the responsibilities of a full time bowling coach and Ganguly had clarified last Friday that the former India pacer was to be offered a contract of 150 days per year.

The 42-year-old also gave a miss to the opportunity that is available with Sri Lanka, after the governing body in the island nation sacked Graham Ford despite having a successful record with the national side as well as a strong bonding with the players.

"Maybe one day in a couple of years that'd be something I'd seriously consider", he insisted. "I tell Rahul Dravid you can't do an IPL, but [then] I [can't] tell the others you can do what you do and I will pay you", the official said, pointing out inconsistencies if Zaheer were to be employed without resolving possible conflict issues. "In the end, I just felt I wasn't quite ready for that opportunity", said Gillespie, who took 259 Test wickets in 71 matches and 142 wickets in 97 ODIs in his global career.

PNG have some wonderfully talented cricketers and I see my role as to be there to support them in any way I can in their preparation and during game, "said Gillespie".

The final decision on bringing back Arun as well as retaining the pair of batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar will be made on Tuesday when the three-member committee formed by Committee of Administrators (CoA) meets Shastri. If it's an global, then so be it. "All you can do as a coach is present your case on how you think you can make a difference and help the team perform better", he said.
