A very reliable source close to the developments told Sportstar: "Mr. Rai has asked the BCCI to announce the name of the head coach by Tuesday evening. He has spoken to the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri and to the BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary and asked them to name the head coach.’’

The CAC member Sourav Ganguly had on Monday stated that he, V.V.S. Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar would speak to Kohli on various aspects of coaching, including individual styles before naming the coach. "Kohli needs to understand how different coaches operate. We will speak to him after he returns from America,’’ Ganguly had said after the CAC had seen presentations and interviewed five candidates including Ravi Shastri, Virender Sehwag, Lalchand Rajput, Tom Moody and Richard Pybus.

In recent times, Rai and Choudhary had gone on record saying that the CAC will have the last word on identifying the coach.
