"WV Raman is the batting coach, TA Sekar is the fast bowling coach and Hirwani is the spin bowling coach, were appointed today on the NCA board," BCCI joint secretary and meeting convener Amitabh Chaudhary told reporters.

"There will be a panel of coaches to assist them. The process will involve interviewing them and NCA director Dilip Vengsarkar (former India captain and ex-chief selector) has been given the job of shortlisting these people," he added.

Asked about the restructuring of the Bengaluru-based NCA, Chaudhary said that there is a need for a permanent base and one-month time has been given to the job of finding a place in Bengaluru. Otherwise it may be shifted out", he said.

The likely places where NCA might be shifted are Dharamshala or Pune, according to other BCCI sources.
