New Delhi:

Indian cricket coach John Wright is likely to be offered a fresh contract when his current tenure ends in September this year. Acknowledging that the former New Zealand captain had done a "good job" since becoming the coach in November 2000, BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya said that he believed in continuity. However, Dalmiya maintained that the decision regarding re-appointment of the coach would be taken by the Board's Working Committee. "We have no idea of saying goodbye to anybody at the moment. Wright has done a good job, but it is a decision which will be taken by the Working Committee at a later stage," Dalmiya said. The former New Zealand opener took over the job from Kapil Dev for the home series against Zimbabwe in 2000 and his contract was extended by a year just before the TVS Cup in Dhaka last year. (PTI)
