The future of Trevor Penny and Joe Dawes was uncertain with Team India, ever since the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) replaced them for the limited-overs series in England.
According to reports, the BCCI has asked both Penny and Dawes to report at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and their stint with the national team is over.
Sanjay Bangar, N Sridhar and Bharat Arun were appointed as assistant coaches for the ODIs and one-off T20 in the England tour and the Indian board is likely to give them a longer stint with the Indian team.
The fate of Penny and Dawes is to be decided in the BCCI’s working committee’s meeting but till then they have been told to assist at the NCA, as they have contracts till the World Cup.
“The BCCI has asked Dawes and Penny to be at the NCA where they will be assisting other coaches,” a BCCI official said. “Their contract is till the World Cup next year, so we want them to help other coaches in Bangalore.”
“We don’t know what the working committee will decide but for the time being they have been asked to be in India,” he added.
