|Former India off-spinner Erapalli Prasanna on Friday said if the Indian team captain feels he is the "boss" then the team can perform without a coach. Prasanna's comment when asked about the rift between Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble, who quit as Indian cricket Canadiens Jersey team coach recently. "Why do they require a coach, if the captain is the boss?" Prasanna asked. "I don't think they even need the services of batting or fielding coaches (Sanjay Bangar and R Sridhar)."
Prasanna also questioned Kohli's captaincy abilities.
"Kohli is undoubtedly a very good player but I do not know whether he is a good captain or not," he said.
Kumble quit as India coach in the aftermath of their Champions Trophy final loss to arch-rivals Pakistan, stating that Kohli had reservations about his coaching "style" and their partnership was "untenable".
Team India will be without a coach in the tour to the West Indies, where they are scheduled to play five ODIs and one-off T20 match starting at Port of Spain later on Friday.
"If a legendary cricketer like Anil Kumble is not respected, I do not think neither of them -- Bangar and Sridhar -- will have the http://www.authenticcanadiensonline.com/Authentic-Al-Montoya-Jersey guts to speak to Kohli in a confident way. None of them are as experienced like Kumble," Prasanna said.
"Just hire somebody for the physical training and that will be enough. If such is the attitude of a captain I don't think you require a coach," the 77-year-old said.
"We can go back to the good old days of appointing a manager to look after the logistics, if he (Kohli) takes up the responsibility. The role of a coach is not defined," he added.
Prasanna also said the time has come for India to look beyond old warhorses like Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
"I don't think they will be able to continue till the next World Cup in 2019, they will be 38 then. We need fresh and young legs and players who are extremely agile," he said.
"Okay, Dhoni will be the wicketkeeper but Yuvraj is going to be a liability as a fielder. In fact, the selectors should have tried out more youngsters for this West Indies tour, as they are one of the weakest teams at the moment."
Prosecutors in Barcelona say they are not against replacing football star Lionel Messi's 21-month jail sentence for tax fraud with a fine, a spokeswoman announced on Friday. They said they were willing to give the 29-year-old a fine of 400 euros ($450) a day for the duration of the Anthony Hitchens Womens Jersey sentence -- an option that the defence of the Argentina international has also proposed.
That would amount to more than 250,000 euros, although the court has the final decision over whether to go ahead with this option.
The daily fine would come on top of the 2.09-million-euro fine Messi was also given when he and his father Jorge Horacio Messi were found guilty of tax fraud in a trial last year and sentenced to 21 months in jail.
Both appealed, but Spain's Supreme Court last month confirmed the jail term for the Barcelona striker, although it reduced Messi's father's sentence to 15 months.
The pair used companies in Belize, Britain, Switzerland and Uruguay to avoid paying taxes on 4.16 million euros of Messi's income earned from his image rights from 2007-09.
The income related to Messi's image rights that was hidden includes endorsement Brandon Scherff Womens Jersey deals with Danone, Adidas, Pepsi- Cola, Procter & Gamble and the Kuwait Food Company.
Messi is not the only football star to run into problems with Spain's courts, with Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo the latest to have been summoned to appear before a judge investigating tax fraud.
He is due to be questioned on July 31 on suspicion of evading 14.7 million euros in taxes.
England batsman Jason Roy became the holder of a dubious record on Friday when he became the first batsman in Twenty20 International history to be given out for obstructing the field. The England opener etched his name into the record books during a T20I match between England and South Africa at the County Ground in Taunton. The incident happened in the 16th over of England's innings when Roy's teammate Liam Livingstone http://www.nikecowboysjerseys.com/alfred-morris-jersey-for-sale-c-51.html sent the ball towards backward point and asked for a single but changed his mind at the last moment.
Roy, while running back to the crease, changed his path and the throw from the fielder hit his boots. After the incident, South Africa players appealed and the on-field umpire asked for the help of the TV umpire.
After much deliberation Roy was given out, much to the dismay of the home fans.
