Mumbai: The Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) was trolled on social media after their official recommendation to BCCI about the appointment of Team India's head coach had a spelling mistake.

The three-member CAC comprising Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy re-appointed the incumbent Ravi Shastri as the head coach of Team India by unanimous decision on Friday.

 

The CAC shortlisted three names in order of priorities in which Shastri exceeded former New Zealand's head coach Mike Hesson and former Sri Lanka and Sunrisers Hyderabad head coach Tom Moody.

“Number three was Tom Moody, number two was Mike Hesson. Number one is Ravi Shastri as all of you were expecting... (But) It was a very close race,” said Kapil Dev at the press conference to announce the decision in Mumbai.

In the official recommendation which was made public by BCCI, the CAC wrongly spelt Mike Hesson’s name, which irked the netizens who expressed their frustration through Twitter.

Shastri has been reappointed for a two-year period, ending with the 2021 T20 World Cup in India.
