Place your bets...

Still on the subject of India's cricket coach -- and have you picked your favorite yet?

My pick (I am happily in distinguished company here, with Steve Waugh, Rahul Dravid, and Peter Roebuck all nominating him) is Tom Moody.

He has had success with Western Australia (and coaching a side in Australia's fiercely competitive domestic circuit is no sinecure); he is young, he is hungry to establish himself on the world stage (as John Wright was, when he moved from Kent to take the Indian job), and he has the nous to build on what Wright accomplished during his tenure.

What's the betting, though, that the BCCI will go for the more glamorous Greg Chappell -- especially since he appears less demanding in terms of terms than he was when last he applied for the job?
