Cricket-India’s Rajput stays in charge for Australia ODIs

MUMBAI, Sept 27 (Reuters) – India’s Lalchand Rajput has been rewarded for India’s Twenty20 World Cup success by having his interim spell as cricket manager extended for the home one-day series against Australia beginning on Saturday.

The cricket board said on Thursday that former test batsman Rajput, who was put in temporary charge of the team that won the Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa on Monday, could carry on.

India have been without a full-time coach since Australian Greg Chappell resigned after their first-round exit in the 50-over World Cup in the Caribbean in March.

South African Graham Ford turned the job down in June but the board has since advertised the post.

A special committee comprising former captains will on Saturday consider the 20 applications received.

The team is expected to have a full-time coach in place for the tour of Australia in December.
